To avoid hole in the middle at beg of round, beg with a magic circle (instead of ch-ring) as follows: Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same dc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next dc, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.
PICOT EDGE:
Work * 1 dc in first dc, work 3 ch, 1 tr in 3rd ch from hook, skip approx. 1 cm *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.

Hallo, ich konnte der Wort Anleitung (Kinder32/34) folgen bis zum Beginn der ABNAHMEN in der 1. Runde: Ich habe es so verstanden, daß ich 8 fM häkel, dann 4 Abnahmen mit je 2 fM und dann nochmal 10 fM. Dann wenden, aber dann habe ich nicht 12 Maschen?! Würde mich sehr über Hilfe freuen. Danke

DROPS Design 19.01.2018 kl. 16:05:

Liebe Frau Pusch, bei der 2. Reihe verdoppeln Sie jede M = 16 M. Bei der 3. Reihe nehmen Sie 8 M zu = 24 M. Bei der 4. und 6. Reihe häkeln Sie keine Zunahme. Bei der 5. Reihe nehmen Sie 8 M = 32 M und bei der 7. Reihe nehmen Sie 4 M zu = 36 M. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!
