Nav uw reactie over de hoeveelheid garen hoeft het niet zo te zijn dat het niet eerder gebeurd is dat mensen garen tekort zijn gekomen. Wellicht hebben mensen het gewoon niet gemeld. Van het licht groen wordt aanzienlijk meer gebruikt in het vest en in de mouwen dan van de overige kleuren. Ik zal garen moeten bij bestellen en dat zal een ander verfbad hebben gehad en zal u in dus kleurverschil krijgen.

Inger 18.08.2018 - 18:06:

Ik ben inmiddels klaar met het lijfje van dit vest, maar volgens mij kom ik licht groen garen tekort voor de mouwen. In het lijfje zijn er 3 van de 4 strepen waar licht groen in gebruikt wordt. Daarvan 2 strepen met 1 draad licht groen en 1 draad met een andere kleur. De 3e streep is zelfs dubbeldraads licht groen. Ook in de mouwen wordt van de kleur licht groen het meest gebruikt. Dan begrijp ik niet dat de hoeveelheid licht groen hetzelfde is in het patroon als de donkere kleur groen?!

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 08:23:

Dag Inger, Het klopt inderdaad dat je in meer strepen lichtgroen gebruikt, maar er is niet eerder een tekort aan aangegeven garen gerapporteerd. De hoeveelheden zouden voldoende moeten zijn. Als je tekort komt kun je het verkooppunt vragen of er je nog garen kunt krijgen van hetzelfde verfbad. (Zie verfbadnummer op de wikkel)

Michelle 21.02.2018 - 14:48:

Chaining 117 for the sleeves makes them absolutely huge! What can I do about this!

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 15:24:

Dear Michelle, in such a zigzag pattern you need more sts in width than for a usual "straight" pattern. Remember to always check - and then keep - your tension so that you will get the correct measurement as shown in chart. Happy crocheting!

Lisette 24.08.2017 - 12:27:

Ik kom met de opzet van 236 lossen al veel te groot uit, ik heb meestal maat L

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 12:28:

Hallo Lisette, Houd er rekening mee dat de punten aan de onderkant nog gevormd moeten worden, waardoor je meer steken op moet zetten. Als je een proeflapje hebt gemaakt en de stekenverhouding klopt, dan komt het waarschijnlijk wel goed.

Sandra 21.10.2016 - 10:21:

Wie funktionieren die Ärmel? So wie ich das verstanden habe wird da jede eine Masche weniger, kann das stimmen?

DROPS Design 21.10.2016 kl. 11:29:

Liebe Sandra, es gibt keine Abnahme bei der Ärmel, die Runde 2 muss man einfach wiederholen.

Claudia 21.05.2016 - 10:26:

Ik heb de middelste maat aangehouden (m-l). Maar het vest is veel te klein. Mijn dochter met maat 134 past hem prima. Wel heel vreemd dus. Maten kloppen dus niet. Ik wil het vest nu maken op de grootste maat, maar ben bang dat het een maat small wordt terwijl ik Large heb. Hoe kan ik dat aanpassen?

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 11:38:

Hoi Claudia. Klopt de haakstekenverhouding wel in jouw project? Je moet 15 stk hebben per 10 cm in de breedte. Heb je meer, dan wordt je project ook kleiner.

Sheila 19.04.2016 - 20:42:

Hello, when I have finished the yolk I have a pointed section in the middle back, followed the instructions but this does not appear correct, can you advise please

DROPS Design 20.04.2016 kl. 08:18:

Dear Sheila, the yoke should be rounded without any tips on mid back at the end of yoke, check the last rows you worked st after st, it should work with a nice rounded yoke. Happy crocheting!

Mónica 29.11.2015 - 11:51:

Buenos días Me encanta vuestro patrón y me gustaría saber si lo tenéis traducido al español. Lo empiezo a leer y entiendo una paete perp luego me pierdo😦 Un saludo

DROPS Design 03.12.2015 kl. 09:56:

Hola Monica, el patrón lo tienes traducido al español. Sólo tienes que marcar en la pestaña "idiomas" y elegir el idioma español. O buscarlo directamente desde la página de inicio española

Henriette 27.08.2015 - 14:21:

Omg 4 på bærestykket passer, men omg 5 kan ikke passe, de fleste af huller (af luftmasker)sidder ikke over de andre.....Jeg har læst rettelser. Men jeg kan se andre har haft samme problem . Hvad er galt?

Aaltje De Vos 19.08.2015 - 07:19:

At end of row 4 of yoke186 st for l/xl. follow row 5 i.e. ch3 plus 5tr for band, 2x 2tr in next tr, 11x tr in next tr, skip 4, 14x tr in next tr, skip 4 and that is where the trouble starts. you will need 28 tr on the previous row. However, if you add up the tr of the previous row over this stretch of pattern there are only 24. Please let me know how to proceed. Thanks!
