Zee 21.02.2019 - 09:02:

Hi there, Would you please explain what it means to work 2-2 ch in paris hook means? Then also the next round when it says make 12-12 tr in ch.. Thanks

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 10:30:

Dear Zee, you are working with yarn DROPS Paris and crochet 2 chains, then work round 1: 12 treble crochets (in both sizes) in the 1st chain (= 2nd chain from hook). Join with 1 sl st in 2nd ch from hook = there are 12 tr on this round. Happy crocheting!

Charlie 23.04.2018 - 14:45:

Hi there. My tension square is not working out. I am getting the correct number of stitches but my 9 rows exceed the size. Do I need to change my hook or drop a row somewhere within the pattern? Please advise.

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 16:19:

Dear Charlie, try to avoid pulling sts too high when working your tr(UK)/dc (US) so that you can get correct tension in height. Happy crocheting!

Kathleen 12.08.2017 - 10:26:

Thanks for reply i can see now where I went wrong when I read pattern correctly. 1 should slow down and read more carefully. Thanks again

Kathleen 11.08.2017 - 10:09:

Round 7 S/M size. To get 22 ch-spaces. The pattern would have to read To skip 2 spaces and then 3 spaces to NOT skip 2 spaces and then 1 space. I. e. Work 1ch, 1 dc In first tr, * 5 ch, skip 2 tr, work 1 dc in next tr, 5 ch, skip 3 tr, work 1 dc in next tr, 5 ch,skip 2 tr, work 1 dc in next tr'* repeat from *,* 6 times (= 18 ch-spaces). * 5 ch, skip 2 tr, work 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *,* 3 times in total, 5 ch, skip 2 tr and finish with sl st in first dc on round. 22 ch-spaces

DROPS Design 11.08.2017 kl. 11:02:

Dear Kathleen, round 7 in size S/M is worked over 60 sts (no round 6 in size S/M) so that number of sts skipped will match the number of sts on previous round. Happy crocheting!

Keia 06.04.2017 - 23:45:

How can this pattern accommodate a head circumference of 74 cm? Thank you in advance!

DROPS Design 07.04.2017 kl. 08:27:

Dear Keia, we are unfortunately not able to adjust each our patterns to each individual request. You are welcome to contact your DROPS store for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Sandy 30.03.2017 - 01:12:

Am I understanding right. For the S/M you skip row 6?

DROPS Design 30.03.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Sandy, round 6 is worked the same way in both size. Round 7 will be different in size S/M and L/XL, then you work round 8 and 9 the same way, and round 10 will be different in both sizes... Happy crocheting!

Mylissa Scott 05.06.2016 - 17:25:

I'm having problems getting started. Do i suppose to chain 2 and tr crochet in the 2nd chain

DROPS Design 06.06.2016 kl. 09:49:

Dear Mrs Scott, you first ch 2 then crochet 12 tr in the 1st of the 2 chains at the same time, replace 1st tr with 3 ch at beg of round (see crochet info). Happy crocheting!

Sandra Cisneros 02.10.2015 - 17:56:

Hi! How many skeins of yarn does this project takes?

DROPS Design 02.10.2015 kl. 20:09:

Since Paris is 50 grams per ball, and this pattern calls for 150 grams, you need 3 balls of Paris to make this pattern.

En la vuelta ocho que dice lo siguiente: Hacer 2 cad, 1 p.b. en el primer arco de cad, * 5 cad, hacer 1 p.b. en el arco sig *, repetir de *a* en toda la vta, terminar con 5 cad y 1 p.bjs en el primer p.b. de la vta = 22-24 arcos de cad. Cuando habla de hacer el punto bajo en el arco de cadeneta exactamente en que punto se hace en la unión de los dos arcos, en el medio del arco, en que punto de los cinco cadenas? Me podrías aclarar, gracias.

DROPS Design 15.07.2015 kl. 09:37:

Hola Mónica, El punto bajo se hace alrededor del arco (atravesando el arco por dentro) y en el centro.

Michela 18.06.2015 - 17:03:

Buonasera, ho fatto il cappello ma non riesco a trovare un filo di ferro che riesca a sostenerlo. Se lo compro troppo spesso non riesco a piegarlo. Cosa devo fare? Aiuto perfavore entro tre giorni devo finirlo per regalarlo

DROPS Design 19.06.2015 kl. 10:41:

Buongiorno Michela. Se trova del filo di ferro sottile, può provare a metterlo doppio. Se nella sua zona esiste una buona ferramenta o un buon negozio di bricolage/merceria, dovrebbero essere in grado di suggerirle cosa eventualmente usare in alternativa. Buon lavoro!
