Witam, nadal nie bardzo rozumiem, robiąc przekrój rękawa omijam 21 słupków i wykonuję łańcuszek a w następnym rzędzie wrabiam na łańcuszku 23 słupki co daje 44 słupki w przekrój rękawa. wykonując rękaw natomiast otrzymam (po zszyciu) "tubę" której obwód na początku to 25 słupków (wrobionych w łańcuszek początkowy). Jak mam przeszyć rękaw (25 słupków) do przekroju rękawa (44 słupki)?

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 18:27:

Witaj Lidio, rękaw jest przerabiany od góry do dołu. Zaczynamy od góry rękawa (wyśrodkować), następnie dodajemy oczka z każdej strony aż do dolnej części podkroju rękawa (pacha) (37 o. w rozmiarze 6/8 lat), dalej zamykamy oczka co 6 rzędów, jak w opisie. Na koniec rękaw jest zszywany. Miłej robótki!

Lidia 11.01.2018 - 21:23:

Witam, mam pytanie odnośnie rękawa: w rozmiarze 6/8lat przekrój rękawa to 44 oczka (21+23) natomiast przy wykonaniu rękawa należy przerobić na początku 25 słupków, czy w takim razie na jeden rękaw muszę wykonać dwa elementy według opisu?

DROPS Design 12.01.2018 kl. 10:01:

Witaj Lidio! W rozmiarze 6/8lat przekrój rękawa to 42 oczka (21+21). Wg opisu rękaw wykonywany jest oddzielnie od góry do dołu. Należy przerabiać jak w opisie czyli łańcuszek, a następnie 25 słupków – to jest na cały rękaw. Powodzenia!

Marijke 22.11.2017 - 23:57:

Mt. 2. Plaats markeerders voorpand? Cirkel dubbelgevouwen, armsgaten matchen. Ik heb dan midboven en midonder. Op hoeveel stokjes van die punten plaats ik markeerders?

DROPS Design 23.11.2017 kl. 08:45:

Hallo Marijke, Je hoeft het werk niet dubbel te vouwen. Bij het linker voorpand heb je 60-68-74-83 stk. Vanuit het midden van deze steken tel je 18-20-22-24 st naar beide kanten (dus richting de hals en richting de onderkant van het werk) toe en dan plaats je een markeerder. Daarna begin je met haken volgens instructies. Het rechter voorpand doe je op dezelfde manier.

Robin 29.09.2017 - 18:24:

Thank you for your help. I'm afraid I still don't understand the instructions for the front panels because there is still no instruction on how to treat the slip stitch, single stitch, and half double crochet stitches on the return rows and still increase before and after the markers.

DROPS Design 02.10.2017 kl. 12:06:

Dear Robin, you decrease as follows: Work firt row with dc until 3 dc remain, * then work these last 3 dc as follows: in the first of these work 1 hdc, in the next 1 sc and in the last 1 sl st. Turn with ch 1, then skip the sl st, work 1 sl st in the sc, 1 sc in the hdc, 1 hdc in the first dc, continue with dc until 3 dc remain at the end of row, turn and repeat from * on next row. Happy crocheting!

Robin 22.09.2017 - 19:35:

I have read all the comments and answers and I still am unsure how to work the front panel. I've completed the first two rows but on the third, when I come back to the hdc, sc, and sl, do I work them each with a dc in order to reach the marker and increase a dc on the next stitch or do I skip them? My question is how to deal with those stitches to get to the markers to make the increases. Also, are the increases made with two dc in one stitch? Thank you for your help.

DROPS Design 25.09.2017 kl. 09:36:

Dear Robin, start to dec when 3 dc remains on row then *work 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 sl st, turn and work 1 ch, skip the sl st, and crochet 1 sl st in the dc, 1 sc in the hdc, 1 hdc in the 1st dc, then continue with dc until 3 dc remains at theh end of row, and repeat from *. At the same time you are dec at the beg and end of each row, increase 2 dc on each row (= crochet 2 dc in 1 dc on every row alternately before and after each marker). Happy crocheting!

Beth Vandergriff 01.09.2017 - 16:21:

Thank you!!!

Beth Vandergriff 01.09.2017 - 14:17:

I am completely lost on how to create the front panels. Do you have pictures or a video I can watch? Part of the problem is I do not understand what 6-7-7-7 means. Thank you very much

DROPS Design 01.09.2017 kl. 15:29:

Dear Mrs Vandergriff, you work stripes and tr back and forth over the 60-68-74-83 sts on front piece increasing at the same time 1 st at each marker on every row until you have worked a total of 6 rows for front piece in the first 2 sizes and 8 rows in the 2 larger sizes. Happy crocheting!

Asha 02.08.2017 - 16:37:

Dear DROPS Design, thank you for the pattern. After one row of inc on the front piece before the markers, When the markers move do they stay on the the sts after the 18th sts? Thank You. Asha

DROPS Design 02.08.2017 kl. 22:25:

Dear Asha, the stitch markers stay in the stitch where you put them, however, as your work grows, they move, always to the last row. You should do teh increases alternately before and after the markers. I hope this helps. Happy Crocheting!

Valerie Parenti 26.07.2017 - 00:33:

Hello, thank you for the pattern! I have crocheted all the pieces and need to sew together. Can you clarify how the sleeves fit once again? I have read your previous explanations and they did help, it just doesn't look right? The piece where the stitches are greatest is considered the cap and should be at the top but then the sleeves seem to fall the wrong way. Please expand on this a little more and thank you so much. A happy crocheter. Valerie

DROPS Design 26.07.2017 kl. 06:09:

Dear Valerie, the widest part of the sleeves (the rows with more stitches) should be sewn into the armhole. Happy crocheting!

Asha 25.07.2017 - 15:29:

Dear DROPS Design, on the front piece decrease you said to work until 3 dc remain and hdc, sc, and sl sts. Now when I work the other two rows and I have to rep the decrease and said to work until 3 dc remain is this mean that I should skip hdc , sc, sl sts, and do the 3 sts before the hdc , sc, sl sts? thank You. Asha

DROPS Design 25.07.2017 kl. 17:10:

Dear Asha, you will work until 3 dc remain, ie do not count the hdc, sc, sl st at the end of the row. Happy crocheting!
