Bonjour Drops, pour les augmentations à partir du 6ème rangs, est-ce toujours dans le 1er arceau du tour ? et y-a-il seulement 1 augmentation par rang ? Merci

DROPS Design 17.12.2015 kl. 10:26:

Bonjour Sabine, au rang 6, on augmente 2 fois: 1 fois dans le 1er arceau et 1 fois dans le dernier arceau - au rang 8, on ne va pas augmenter: on augmente ainsi 1 fois sur 2 quand on répète le rang 4 (= tous les 4 rangs). Bon crochet!

Benedetta 17.07.2015 - 12:15:

Grazie,adesso ho capito!Bravissime e velocissime,(come sempre)

Benedetta 16.07.2015 - 22:24:

Buonasera,ho finito il 4 giro.Adesso devo rip il 3 giro e non ho capito se devo aumentare sempre alla 4 riga.Anche se ho guardato il video non ho capitoGrazie

DROPS Design 17.07.2015 kl. 08:35:

Buongiorno Benedetta. Deve aumentare una volta sì e una no. Quindi, avendo aumentato alla riga 4, alla riga 6 non deve lavorare questa parte di istruzioni: nello stesso arco di cat aumentare lavorando 4 cat e 1 m.a; alla riga 8 lavora la riga come è scritta nel modello (quindi aumenta), è così via. Buon lavoro!

Vorrei fare questo modello in big delight. ..quanto me ne occorre?

DROPS Design 18.11.2014 kl. 10:59:

Buongiorno Carmen. Per sostituire il filato indicato con uno dello stesso gruppo di filati, deve calcolare i metri complessivi necessari con il filato indicato e dividerlo per i metri di un singolo gomitolo del filato scelto. In questo caso: 140 m (1 gomitolo di Brushed AlpacaSilk) x 3 gomitoli necessari = 420 metri : 190 (metri in un gomitolo di Big Delight) = 2,21 quindi 3 gomitoli necessari. Trova ulteriori informazioni su come sostituire i filati al punto 5 della seguente pagina . Buon lavoro!

On the last three rows (dc 3 in the ch spaces), how many ch between each group of 3 dc? If I do 4 ch, it makes a ruffly edge. In the photo, however, the scarf appears to lay flat.

Dear Andrea, the video below shows how to crochet the lace pattern following the diagram, it should help you to crochet these 3 rows. Happy crocheting!

Larraine 19.08.2014 - 17:47:

On the increase row - is it always into the first and last chain ring of the row? This seems to curve the shawl down. have I misunderstood the increases

DROPS Design 20.08.2014 kl. 12:13:

Dear Larraine, the video below should help you to understand how to crochet the shawl. Happy crocheting!

Caterina 30.07.2014 - 14:39:

Buongiorno, come faccio a calcolare quanto filato mi occorre se realizzo questo progetto con PARIS invece che con Brushed alpaca silk? mi sono avanzati due gomitoli di Paris da un precedente lavoro e volevo utilizzarli per questo scialle. grazie

DROPS Design 30.07.2014 kl. 19:28:

Buonasera Caterina, Brushed Alpaca Silk ha una resa di 140 m/25g; il modello richiede 75g, quindi circa 420m. Paris ha una resa di 75m/50g, per cui 420m sono 5,6 gomitoli di Paris, quindi 6 gomitoli. Buon lavoro!!!
