ROUND 1: READ CROCHET TIP! Work 8 htr in the ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 htr in every htr the entire round = 16 htr.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 htr in first htr, 2 htr in next *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 htr.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 htr in each of the next 2 htr, 2 htr in next *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 32 htr.

Je tricote présentement le plastron et je me demande si nous pouvons relever les mailles pour former le col avec des aiguilles circulaires et fermer le rond? Merci !

DROPS Design 25.03.2016 kl. 10:52:

Bonjour Hélène, vous pouvez tout à fait utiliser une aiguille circulaire pour relever les mailles et tricoter le col, en fonction de la taille tricotée, il peut s'avérer alors utile d'utiliser la technique dite du magic loop. Bon tricot!

Gibt es eine spezielle Technik, die Ohren so anzunähen, dass sie , wenn man die Mütze aufgesetzt hat auch stehen? Bei mir fallen sie entweder nach hinten oder nach vorne. Habe mir auch schon das Video angeschaut, konnte aber nichts erkennen, was ich da falsch gemacht haben könnte

DROPS Design 24.11.2015 kl. 22:05:

Sie lassen ja die Ohren unten offen lassen, d.h. sie werden unten nicht zusammengehäkelt. Sie können versuchen, den vorderen und hinteren Teil mit etwas Abstand zueinander anzunähen, eventuell stehen sie dann besser. Oder Sie könnten einen ganz dünnen Draht einziehen, das sollte auf jeden Fall helfen.

Je suis en train de réaliser ce bonnet et j'ai des problèmes pour fixer les oreilles. Comment dois-je faire pour les coudre et qu'elles restent bien droites ? Merci pour votre aide. Cordialement.

DROPS Design 22.09.2015 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Mme Jaussent, cousez les mailles du bas de l'oreille sur le bonnet, en épinglant auparavant si besoin. À la fin de la vidéo ci-dessous qui montre comment réaliser les oreilles, vous pourrez les voir cousues afin de visualiser comment elles doivent être. Bon assemblage!

Volgens mij staat er een foutje in de beschrijving voor de halswarmer. Bij de beschrijving voor het hals gedeelte staat: haak 1 toer av en haak dan 1 toer recht. Volgens mij moet dit brei zijn ipv haak :). Groetjes Bianca

Hoi Bianca. Ja, je hebt gelijk. Ik heb het patroon aangepast. Bedankt voor het melden!
