And make like a mini-loop with those 3 chains and then you close the chain in the same spot, so the picot is inbetween chainloop nr 3 in row 1 and chain-loop nr 1 in row 2. So my question is, i obviously make those 3 ch wrong, could you give me some more detailed explanation on how and where to do dose 3 ch? I can count on the picture A.1 that the picot is placed 3 chain from the point where the loop 1 in row 2 start and ends, so how do i come to that spot?

Dear Raquel, the picots are worked around ch-spaces, after the first 11 ch at beg of row 2, work 1 picot in first ch-space, then 5 ch, in next ch-space work 1 picot, 9ch, 1 picot, 5 ch, and in last (3rd ch-space), work 1 picot, 5 ch, 1 triple tr. Happy crocheting!

Raquel 11.05.2016 - 22:17:

Hi, i am still having troubble with the second row. I guess that the first 11 ch is to build the first loop in the second row, so the first dc in the first picot is to close the first loop in the second row. so when you close the loop you are in the point where chain-loop 1 in row 2 begins and ends, right after the tripple tr, and that dc that closes the loop is the first move in the picot, then you chain 3

Dear Raquel, at the end of 1st row you have 3 large ch-space, on row 2, work in 1st ch-space: 11 ch,1 dc, 3ch, 1 dc, 5ch, then in 2nd ch-space (mid one) work: 1 dc, 3 ch, 1dc, 9ch, 1 dc, 3 ch, 1 dc, 5 ch and in last ch-space work: 1 dc, 3ch, 1 dc, 5 ch, 1 triple tr. You have now 1 picot in 1st and 3rd ch-space, and in the middle ch-space there are 2 picots with 9 ch in between. Happy crocheting!

Raquel Asplund 10.05.2016 - 22:09:

I am having trubble with the first picot. When i end row 1 i end with 1 tripple tr. Then i chain 11 ch from the end of that tripple tr which is in the beginning of the loop with a number 2 under it. So when it says "ROW 2: 11 ch, 1 PICOT - read explanation above - in 1st ch-loop" which loop do they mean? My picot is placed between the loop with a tripple tr and the loop with a 2 under. Help please!

DROPS Design 11.05.2016 kl. 08:50:

Dear Mrs Asplund, the first picot at beg of row 2 is worked in the ch 5 made at the end of first row, ie in the first ch-space (= last ch-space from previous row which is 5 ch, 1 triple tr). Happy crocheting!

Är inte picotbeskrivningen felaktig? Bör den inte se ut så här; 1fm om lmb, 3lm, 1stp i 1:a lm, 1fm om samma lmb.

DROPS Design 06.04.2016 kl. 10:28:

Hej Jackie, Picotbeskrivningen stämmer, så du kan följa den. Tycker du din är finare så gör du den istället. Lycka till!

What. Ply is yarn group D? If the yarn is thinner and the hook smaller, will I need more or less? Hope to hear really really soon as the yarn is a bit exclusive, where I"m buying it and we leave late today! Thank you!

Hallo, ich häkel zum ersten Mal so ein Tuch. Muss ich es am Ende spannen? Momentan habe ich noch kein schönes Dreieck.

DROPS Design 11.04.2015 kl. 09:18:

Ja, Sie können es am Ende anfeuchten, in Form ziehen und trocknen lassen oder unter feuchten Tüchern trocknen lassen. Je nach Wolle, die Sie verwenden, kann es sein, dass es zuerst etwas unregelmäßig wirkt, was sich aber auch schon im Laufe des Häkelns etwas gibt. Achten Sie darauf, dass Sie in der Mitte immer die Zunahme arbeiten, dadurch ergibt sich die Dreiecksform.

De wol is vandaag binnengekomen. Wat een gigantische bol. Ik heb heel veel zin om er aan te beginnen. Naamvoorstel voor deze doek? Summer sunset
