Die Unterseite des Rückenteils wellt sich recht stark, wenn ich wie beschrieben zunehme. Bei der Oberseite kann ich das nachvollziehen, da diese ja eine Art Kuppel darstellt.

Haben Sie die Maschenprobe eingehalten, auch in der Höhe? Wenn es sich zu stark wellt, probieren Sie, etwas weniger Zunahmen zu machen. An sich sollten beide Teile relativ flach werden. Die Oberseite bildet erst bei den letzten Runden eine Wölbung.

Bonjour, Je suis sur le modèle coccinelle je ne vois pas la fermeture du sac les explications pour le fermer merci.

DROPS Design 25.09.2015 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Margarian, le dos et le ventre de de la coccinelle se crochètent ensemble, sur l'endroit (placez les 2 pièces envers contre envers). Il n'y a pas d'ouverture prévue, mais vous pouvez en faire une pour la transformer en sac (avec un zip par ex.). Bon crochet!

Leider stimmt bei diesem Modell die Mengenangabe für die schwarze Wolle nicht, für die Fühler musste ich 50g nachkaufen.

Kathleen Kaluza 09.02.2014 - 20:49:

Hallo.Wie ich es auch mache...ich komme nicht dahinter: nach Rd.4 =geht es nun immer weiter wie in Runde 4 oder dann immer 1 St.in jede M? Welche Aufnahmen sind gemeint und wo wird dann ein weiteres St. plaziert? Ich komme wirklich nicht weiter. Herzlichen Dank für eine Antwort Kathleen kaluza

DROPS Design 10.02.2014 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Kathleen, damit der Kreis wächst, wird immer 1 Stb mehr zwischen den Aufnahmen gehäkelt.

Er staat niets in het patroon over de verbinding aan de zijkante

Hoi Femmy. Jawel. Onder de beschrijving van de BOVENKANT VAN LIEVEHEERSBEESTJE staat er: "Lug nu onderkant en bovenkant op elkaar en haak ze samen met een v toer door beide lagen en vul TEGELIJKERTIJD lieveheersbeestje met kussenvulling. Hecht af."

..... Had to look twice at the pictures with the "antennas". Imagine them in pink, enough said! :D

Jeannett Grødeland Lund 19.02.2013 - 18:08:

Lurer på hva som menes me 4 omgang. Der det står. Hekle videre ved å hekle 1 stav mer mellom hver gang det hekles 2 staver i samme maske. Vil det si at jeg skal hekle 1-2-2 osv hele veien eller skal det være 3 staver i samme maske som det er 2 staver i.??

DROPS Design 20.02.2013 kl. 08:58:

Efter 4. omgang (dvs, omgang 5, 6 osv) hekler du 1 stav mer mellom hver gang det hekles 2 staver. Dvs i omgang 5 hekler du 2 staver i hver 4. m og i omgang 6 hekler du 2 staver i hver 5. m osv
