Hallo, hat schon jemand diesen Topflappen gehäkelt und kann mir Runde 9 verständlich erklären? Dankeschön

Yvonne 11.11.2018 - 11:21:

Hallo, leider verstehe ich bei Runde 9 nicht wann ich welche Maschen zunehmen soll, vorher hat man ja immer Halbe-Stäbchen zugenommen, wenn man auch gerade Halbe-Stäbchen gehäkelt hat und je ein Stäbchen, in der "Stäbchen-Phase", jetzt wechseln sich Halbe-Stäbchen mit Stäbchen, festen Maschen und Doppelstäbchen in einem nicht mehr nachvollziehbarem Rhythmus ab. Woher soll man wissen, welche Art von Masche man jetzt wann zunehmen soll?

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 09:59:

Liebe Yvonne, die Zunahmmen entstehen wie zuvor, die häkeln Sie auch wie zuvor und entweder mit fM oder HStb häkeln, dh wie unter Runde 9 beschrieben. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Cristina Ridella 26.02.2018 - 00:02:

Cortesemente è possibile venga chiarito il giro numero 9? Ad esempio: le prime 9 m.b alla fine diventano 10 visto che si incontra un aumento sottostante?

Emily 15.01.2018 - 04:24:

Can you clarify round 9? If I just follow the instructions around (9sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3tr, 3dc, 3hdc,12sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3tr, 3dc, 3hdc, 2sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3tr, 3dc, 3hdc, 12 sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3tr, 3dc, 3hdc, 1sc) that's 96 stitches, not 108.

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 06:15:

Hi Emily, In addition to the stitches described in round 9, you continue to increase on the round but with 1 more hdc/dc between the increases than the previous round. This gives you 108 stitches on round 9. Happy crocheting!

Kan man ikke starte arbejdet med en magisk ring ?

Lise Blomquist 30.10.2016 - 14:46:

Jeg konstaterede, at jeg ikke havde nok i 1 nøgle rødt til bagsiden af grydelappen. Så køb 3 nøgler, hvis du vil være sikker på at have nok.

Lise BLOMQUIST 20.10.2016 - 12:55:

Jeg har nu forsøgt den af Drops foreslåede metode til række 9, men konstaterer, at der så ikke bliver samme antal dobbelte stangmasker i de 4 hjørner. Til gengæld virker det fint med det, der er foreslået af Helle Hinnerup, så den metode valgte jeg, og det virker! Tak til dig, Helle. Lise

Lise BLOMQUIST 18.10.2016 - 19:55:

Foreløbig tak, men jeg er stadig i tvivl. Alle,masker på række 9 er beskrevet, blot ikke udtagningerne. Det ville have gjort det nemmere. En anden hækler har under kommentarer skrevet række 9, men det stemmer ikke med jeres. Kan det ikke specificeres mere nøjagtigt med udtagningerne på række 9? Tak.

DROPS Design 19.10.2016 kl. 12:39:

Hej Lise. Som sagt ville jeg fortsaette med samme frekvens i udtagningerne, saa hekle 7 m (var det vist nok) i hver maske som der staar, og saa 2 i naeste maske. Og saa haekle i den slags masker som du er naaet til. Dvs, du starter med 1 fm i de förste 9 m = 7 fm i hver af de förste 7 m, 2 fm i één m, og saa 1 fm i naeste m (du har saa heklet 1 fm i de 9 förste m, men har öget til 10 fm, osv).

Lise 17.10.2016 - 16:57:

Hej, hvordan og især HVOR skal udtagninger fra 96 til 108 masker foretages. Kan I beskrive, ved hvilke masker der skal hækles 2 gange i samme maske for udtagning?

DROPS Design 18.10.2016 kl. 12:46:

Hej Lise. Du fortsaetter paa samme maade som tidligere. F.eks. i omg 4 haeklede du 1 halv-st i de förste 2 halv-st, 2 halv-st i naeste halv-st osv. Det betyder at du skal fortsatte paa samme maade, dvs, i omg 5, 1 halv-st i de förste 3 halv-st, 2 i 1 halv-st, omg 6; 1 halv-st i de förste 4 osv. Jeg ville tage samme frekvens i omg 9, jeg vil mene du saa er naaet til 1 m i de förste 7 m og saa 2 i 1.

Helle Hinnerup 12.06.2016 - 11:37:

Efterfølgende skal udføres 4 gange: 7 fm, i 8. m hækles 2 fm (= 9 m i 8 m = 1. Udt.), 3 * ½ st i 3 m (= 3 m i 3 m), 3 * hel st i 3 m (= 3 m i 3 m), 1 dbl-st i 1 m ( = 1 m i 1 m), 2 dbl-st i 1 m (= 2 m i 1 m = 2. Udt. med 9 m i 8 m), 3 * hel st i 3 m (= 3 m i 3 m), 3* ½ st i 3 masker (= 3 m i 3 m), 1 fm i 1 m (= 1 m i 1 m), 2 fm i 1m (= 2 m i 1 m = 3. Udt. med 9 m i 8 m), i alt 27m i 24 m
