Het betreft de little red riding hood van Garnstudio . Met betrekking tot de capuchon krijg ik graag enige uitleg. De steken die opgenomen moeten worden voor de capuchon, betreft dat hier de helft van de capuchon en wordt deze later aan het achterpand vastgemaakt? Ik begrijp het aantal steken dat moet worden opgenomen niet en welke ik dan moet opnemen.

Karen Bell 16.11.2017 - 21:44:

Please help! I don't understand the directions for the right front piece. The directions aren't clear, it says continue with dc upwards on all rows...Do you chain 3 at the end of rows before you do the next rows? That's what I've been doing but it's curling inward...doesn't look right. I'm doing child size 5/6. I'm finished with the back and love it...I SO want to finish this sweater...thank you in advance.

DROPS Design 17.11.2017 kl. 09:09:

Dear Mrs Bell, in size 5/6 work over the 28 dc until piece measures 6" and then start decrease. The first 3 dc on the right side are for the front band, these are included in the 28 dc. Happy crocheting!

Jessica 12.10.2017 - 22:17:

Is there an adult version of this pattern? If there isn't one do you have any suggestions on how to adapt the current pattern for an adult? Thank you

DROPS Design 13.10.2017 kl. 09:25:

Dear Jessica, there is only child version to this pattern. You can get help from adult patterns adjusting depending on your size, gauge, yarn etc... Happy crocheting!

Lori Cram 03.09.2017 - 03:03:

I have printed the pattern, but it does have how to start it, it starts with row 1 "ROW 1 (= row marked with 1 arrow in diagram): 1 ch up from 1st sc on the previous row, " BUT There is no previous row instructed.

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 10:17:

Dear Lori Chan, the first part of the pattern explain the different techniques used, start under "BACK PIECE" to get the number of chains to cast on. Happy crocheting!

Pam Richmond 02.09.2016 - 06:35:

What size are the buttons? You don't seem to sell these buttons any more and the pattern doesn't say what size.

DROPS Design 02.09.2016 kl. 08:10:

Dear Pam, their size is 20 mm. Happy knitting!

Arcangela 28.07.2016 - 18:19:

Buongiorno, vorrei realizzare questo modello per la mia bambina di 7 anni. Avendo acquistato cotone MUSKAT color corallo vorrei ricevere le giuste indicazioni per adattare il modello con cappuccio al tipo di filato scelto. Se è possibile.......... Vi ringrazio anticipatamente!!!

DROPS Design 28.07.2016 kl. 19:12:

Buongiorno Arcangela. Il filato Muskat appartiene a un gruppo di filati diverso dal Paris; è più sottile e il campione sarà diverso. Per realizzare il modello con questo filato è necessario ricalcolare il numero delle maglie in base al suo campione. Purtroppo non ci è possibile fornirle un aiuto così personalizzato. Può però rivolgersi al suo fornitore Drops di fiducia. Grazie e buon lavoro!

Kathleen Lambert Quigley 08.02.2016 - 17:29:

Thank you so much for the lovely patterns . My grandchildren will look adorable in them.

Helle 03.10.2015 - 11:55:

Jeg får for mange m på ærmet efter mønster rækkerne. Jeg har taget ind i starten til 26 m( str 7/8). På 3 mønsterrække har jeg 12 st-grupper.

Trudy Zampier 25.04.2015 - 19:03:

I can not print off the pattern from the link "print: pattern". Also when I am reading the pattern on your site I am not seeing how to start the project. I have 2 granddaughters that would look adorable in this sweater and I would love to crochet it for them. Please help me!

DROPS Design 27.04.2015 kl. 09:20:

Dear Mrs Zampier, when you click on "print:pattern" a new window will open (check that your browser allows pop'ups), in this new window click onto "Continue to print the pattern" to launch printing. Happy crocheting!

Lisa Graham 06.01.2015 - 03:41:

Hello. When working the last row of the back piece, the middle 12 stitches are left unworked for the neck. Do I use a slip stitch to get across this section? So it would be 12 dc, 12 slip stitch, 12 dc? Thanks in advance.

DROPS Design 06.01.2015 kl. 09:26:

Dear Mrs Graham, on last row on back piece, work the first 12 sts on row, and cut the yarn (1st shoulder) - skip the next 12 sts on row (neckline), join the yarn and work 1 dc in the last 12 dc on row (2nd shoulder). Happy crocheting!
