Hoi Hendrika. De fouten zijn nu gecorrigeerd.

Wurde die Anleitung berichtigt? Oder muss man aufpassen und berücksichtigen, was Els beschrieben hat, was ich allerdings nicht ganz verstehe....

DROPS Design 12.11.2015 kl. 20:53:

Die Anleitung wurde noch nicht berichtigt. Beim Körper müssen Sie also ab der 1. Rd nicht * 1 fM in die ersten 3 fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM * häkeln, sondern * 1 fM in die ersten 2 fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM *, damit Sie die passenden Zunahmen erhalten. Das berücksichtigen Sie auch in den folgenden Rd, also immer 1 M weniger, als dort geschrieben steht. Es ist wichtig, dass Sie immer die M-Zahl erhalten, die am Ende genannt ist.

Voor al miijn kleinkinderen (9) heb ik een kerstman/vrouw gemaakt met groot succes! Ze zijn echt geweldig leuk en lief geworden. Er zit wèl een fout in het patroon. In 'LIJF KERSTVROUW' en 'LIJF KERSTMAN' staan de aantal steken vanaf het meerderen in toer 1 steeds één getal te ver. dat wil zeggen: lijf kerstvrouw, toer 1: haak *1 v in elke van de volgende 3 v' moet zijn: elke volgende 2 v.. en dat is in iedere toer verkeerd gezet. Ik hoop dat ik het duidelijk heb kunnen omschrijven.
