Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

DROPS Design 23.11.2016 kl. 09:31:

Hi, Remember to always have your browser updated and it should then work! Happy crocheting!

Maria 24.12.2015 - 01:21:

At the end of the directions for the nose you say " fill the snout with some poly stuffing". Do you mean the nose? Otherwhise how to stuff with poly stuffing a flat piece? Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas!

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 13:27:

Dear Maria, only the nose should be filled. Happy crocheting!

Maria 24.12.2015 - 01:16:

For the snout, after finishing the 1st ROW 2 and before repeating it for two more times, do I turn the piece or I continue in round? I tried to do it by turning the piece and the snout becomes very triangular.

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 13:26:

Dear Maria, snout is worked back and forth, after you have worked row 2, turn and repeat row 2 a total of 3 more times, turning at the end of each row = the snout is 5 rows in total. Happy crocheting!

Maria 21.12.2015 - 15:58:

After round 11 you say to work around until the piece measures 18 cm. By that you mean to flatten the cap and count the diametre? Because I think it is too small like this... Thanks in advance

DROPS Design 22.12.2015 kl. 10:11:

Dear Maria, you continue working until piece measures 18 cm from the beg (= 1st round). Happy crocheting!

FRANCOISE 12.12.2015 - 06:54:

Bonjour, quand vous dites après le tour 11 continuer pour que l'ouvrage mesure x cm c'est de diamètre ?? car sinon cela fait vraiment petit ?? D'avance merci Bonne journée Françoise

DROPS Design 14.12.2015 kl. 09:32:

Bonjour Françoise, mesurez la hauteur depuis le 1er tour: mettez le bonnet à plat et mesurez à partir du haut du bonnet jusqu'au dernier rang. Bon crochet!

Cecile Tirmarche 05.10.2015 - 17:49:

Un tout gran merci! Avec les petites video tout est bien clai!

Cecile Tirmarche 05.10.2015 - 11:47:

L'abreviation "dB" s'agit il d'une demie bride ou d'une double bride?

DROPS Design 05.10.2015 kl. 16:11:

Bonjour Mme Tirmarche, il s'agit d'une demi-bride, voir aussi la vidéo sous l'onglet du même nom. Bon crochet!
