So this is a poncho and a cowl? i dont see anything about attaching and detaching?

DROPS Design 13.09.2018 kl. 06:37:

Hi Ann, the cowl is worked separately from the poncho, but it's not attached to it, just worn over it. Hope this helps. Happy crafting!

Lori 21.06.2018 - 02:11:

Hello, I love this poncho and I am so sorry to ask but i do not understand what 4-4-4 is or 4-5-5 or 11-12-12 and so on. PLEASE help! :0( lol. Thank you so much!!

DROPS Design 21.06.2018 kl. 08:25:

Dear Lori, each number refers to each size, ie when you read 4-5-5 or 11-12-12, the 4 and 11 refer to the first size, then the 5 and 12 refer to the 2nd size and the last 5 and last 12 refer to the largest size. Happy crocheting!

Barbie Gjervold 09.01.2018 - 12:53:

The pattern says the collar is detachable, but how it do I attach it? Am I missing something?

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 13:52:

Dear Mrs Gjervold, the collar is not sewn together to the poncho so that it can be worn (or not worn), it is worked separately. Happy crocheting!

Brocard 18.11.2017 - 08:22:

Bonjour, mon encolure condole ,ne reste pas plate quand je fait un essais sur moi. Que faire ?

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 10:21:

Bonjour Mme Brocard, qu'entendez-vous par là? Si vous avez bien la bonne tension, l'encolure va se placer correctement - si besoin, vous pouvez crocheter un rang de mailles serrées (ou autre) dans la chaînette de départ pour terminer et éventuellement ajuster l'encolure. Bon crochet!

Brenda 24.10.2017 - 23:18:

Thank you for the Free pattern I'm really enjoying working it.

Mikaela 14.05.2017 - 20:57:

Hej. Jag undrar hur man börjar varje varv, blir varje varv förskjutet en stolpgrupp eller har jag missförstått? Som jag gör nu förskjuts början av varvet en stolpgrupp varje varv.

DROPS Design 16.05.2017 kl. 09:42:

Hej, ja varje varv blir förskjutet, sätt gärna en märktråd i spetsen mitt bak och mitt fram så den inte förskjuts. Lycka till!

Donna 14.02.2017 - 18:50:

Does Round 4 mean that I should repeat Round 1,2 and 3, 2 and 3 or just Round 3 until the desired length is completed? Thanks

DROPS Design 15.02.2017 kl. 09:30:

Dear Donna, you will repeat round 3 until finished measurements, at the same time, on every round increase 1 inc tr-group in each tip, so that you will have 1 tr-group more between tips (= middle ch-space) on every round. Happy crocheting!

Franca 26.10.2016 - 19:29:

Buonasera e grazie per la rapida risposta. Io forse non sono molto brava ma se alla fine del secondo giro chiudo con una maglia bss nella terza catenella del giro precedente come faccio a raggiungere il successivo arco di catenelle ? Se non facendo 2 maglie bss nelle 2 e 1 nell'arco di catenelle? Chiedo scusa, io non riesco a capire . Grazie di nuovo

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 21:18:

Buonasera Franca. Al secondo giro, dopo la m.bss nella 3a cat, lavora 1 m.bss in ognuna delle prime 2 m.a e 1 m.bss nel primo arco di cat. Inizia ora il giro 3 con 3 cat , 2 m.a intorno allo stesso arco di cat, 1 cat e poi segue le indicazioni del giro 3. Buon lavoro!

Franca 24.10.2016 - 19:12:

Buonasera ho iniziato questo lavoro, sto usando la lana Drops Delight doppia. Ho un solo dubbio: seguendo le Vs istruzioni, mi pare di capire che l'inizio di ogni giro si sposti di 3 maglie alte. E' proprio cosi' o posso aver interpretato male ? Grazie per la Vs risposta. Franca

DROPS Design 25.10.2016 kl. 01:39:

Buongiorno Franca. Lo spostamento avviene solo alla fine del giro 2. Buon lavoro!
