Bonjour, je ne comprend pas comment commencer le sac. on doit monter une chainette puis continuer en rond. pouvez-vous m'expliquer merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 28.03.2017 kl. 09:26:

Bonjour Mme Benitiere, vous devez crocheter ensuite de chaque côté de la chaînette de base, comme le montre la vidéo ci-dessous, avec 1 ms dans chacune des 54 ms le long de chaque côté. Bon crochet!

Magnifique sac printannier, plein de couleurs et de fleurs, sac que je prendrai autant pour les promenades en ville que pour aller à la plage.

Jeg får ikke til å hekle 1 fm i hver lm på hver side av lm raden. Finnes det en video, eller en beskrivelse av hvordan jeg skal få til dette ?

DROPS Design 06.02.2013 kl. 18:26:

Vi har ikke nogen video med dette endnu, men det er et godt forslag. Vi skal notere det. Men du har en rad med 55 lm. Du haekler först i lökkerne ned ad den höjre side og derefter i lökkerne langs den venstre side. Er det maaske lidt tydeligere?
