Jak należy prać/czyścić lalki robione na szydełku z akrylu i bawełny, żeby ich nie zdeformować?

Sylvie Papineau 06.08.2017 - 14:41:

Bonjour, je m'apprête à faire le Santa's Buddy mais il y a quelque chose que je comprend pas. Au bonnet, on dit après les tours 25-26 de crocheter à partir du tour 23 dans le brin restant, mais c'est indiqué au tour 24 et non 23 de crocheter dans un seul brin ! Merci de me répondre ;)

DROPS Design 07.08.2017 kl. 12:05:

Bonjour Mme Papineau, au tour 24, on a crocheté dans le brin arrière des ms du tour 23, c'est dans le brin resté libre du tour 23 que l'on va continuer. La vidéo ci-dessous montre comment réaliser cette partie. Bon crochet!

Mary 31.07.2017 - 10:56:

I am one of those people that do not read a pattern but go by the diagram. Does this pattern provide a diagram?

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 11:24:

Dear Mary, this pattern is only written, but there is a video showing from round 24 how to work from round 24 the hat, head and ears. Happy crocheting!

Adele 24.12.2015 - 14:14:

Are these instructions complete? I don't get the pattern. where are the body instructions? where are the hat instructions? it seems like it begins in the head. please help!

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 13:35:

Dear Adele, the santa is worked from top of hat down to neck (start on top of hat, then work head top down) - then work body from bottom up. Happy crocheting!
