Ik ben bezig met maat L en loop vast vanaf het lijf. De eerste toer daarvan is gelukt en ben geëindigd bij MEET NU HET WERK VANAF HIER. Daarna moet ik A.6/A.2a/A.8 als hiervoor haken en minderen in laatste toer. Maar waar begin ik het telpatroon van A6 A2a en A8?

Jacqueline 23.08.2018 - 15:58:

Let me try this another way, the row I am on, the pasted section previously, when you count out the stitches, it is 159, yet I have 215 stitches from the row below. I am missing something in the count.

DROPS Design 05.09.2018 kl. 13:46:

Dear Jacqueline, do not forget to count the stitches in A.4: 21 stitches worked on 4 places, maybe you missed them? Happy crocheting!

Jacqueline 23.08.2018 - 15:02:

Hello, thank you for your prompt response. I am sorry I wasn't clearer. I have just completed row 6, the increase row for size large. I have the exact number of stitches required, 215, the next row indicates: Work next row as follows from RS: Work A.1 over the first 5-5-8-8-5-8 tr as before, A.5 over the next 0-3-3-3-0-0 tr, repeat A.2 over the next 18-18-18-18-30-30 tr (= 3-3-3-3-5-5 times in width), A.4 as before, repeat A.2 etc. When following this I am left with 56 unworked stitches.

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 15:50:

Dear Jaqueline, when you work A.4 you gradually increase a lot sts (56 sts at the end) and A.4 is repeated 4 times on the row. Happy crocheting!

Jacqueline 23.08.2018 - 04:49:

I am trying to figure out the first row after the increase row. I have the 215 stitches evenly spaced. When I follow the pattern set up, I am left with 56 unworked stitched, obviously I don't get to the end of the row with stitches. When the stitches are added up there are 159, not 215. I can't figure out what am I missing. Help please.

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 08:52:

Dear Jacqueline, can you be more precise and tell us which size are you crocheting and which is the exact point are you working on? Are you at the very beginning of the pattern, so at first increase or what? Happy crocheting!

Dorien 06.07.2018 - 09:21:

Het patroon is vanaf het begin niet duidelijk. Volgens mij als ik de 3e toer haak kom ik ook niet uit met het patroon volgens telpatroon. En dan dit telpatroon en dan weer die. Ik vind het onoverzichtelijk.

Dorien 01.07.2018 - 23:09:

Hallo, dit is een heel leuk vestje, alleen ik snap er helemaal niks van. Niet van het geschreven patroon maar ook niet van de tekening. Ik heb al heel wat afgehaakt. Ik hoop dat u mij hiermee kunt helpen. Alvast bedankt. Groetjes

DROPS Design 05.07.2018 kl. 15:07:

Dag Dorien,

Kun je wat specifieker aangeven waar je precies tegenaan loopt? Dan kunnen we je hopelijk wat beter helpen :)

Je kunt ook altijd hulp vragen bij de winkel waar je het garen gekocht hebt.

Lenka 10.10.2017 - 21:04:

U českého návodu je asi bug - nezobrazuje se schéma, ani ve verzi pro tisk (otevírala jsem přes android).

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 12:32:

Dobrý den, Lenko, díky za upozornění - opraveno. Hana

Doris Ouellet 17.08.2017 - 00:18:

I have taken the yoke apart about six times and I finally got it right up to where I start the body. My problem is, I now have eight markers instead of four. Could you please tell me how many STITCHES FOR FRONT, SLEEVES AND BACK, ill be very greartful. I'm doing size large and I finally have the right amount of stitches. I really like the looks, but if I have to do it over

DROPS Design 23.08.2017 kl. 11:33:

Dear Doris! As for markers, on yoke (see all sizes): on last row in A.4 (= from WS) insert 1 new marker in the middle of every A.4 (i.e. 18 tr on each side of marker in A.4 = 4 markers). Remove the old markers (= 4 markers remain in piece). You have now 4 markers. In size L: Sts between markers are for sleeves (= 54 tr on each sleeve). When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 287 tr on row. Happy crocheting!

Linn 15.08.2017 - 10:50:

Hej! Har en fråga som gäller fram- och bakstycket i stlk M. När man har gjort de 8 luftmaskorna under ärmhålen ska man fortsätta med A2a. A2a börjar ju varje repetition med 2 lm enligt pilen för M. Stämmer det att det totala antalet lm alltså blir 10, men att de två sista virkas som en del av A.2a och de 8 första som "1:a m i A.6" följande varv?

DROPS Design 05.09.2017 kl. 15:31:

Hej Linn, Ja, det som er vigtigt er at det kommer til at stemme med mønsteret på ryg og forstykke.

Nathalie 25.07.2017 - 09:58:

2/2 Dan heb ik dus 11 losse die ik in de 1e stk na de mouwopening vast maak, maar daarna zou ik 12 keer A2a moeten herhalen, echter is de laatste toer niet telkens met 3 stk in de ruimte van de vorige toer gemaakt. Hoe moet ik nu verder? Zijn die 8+3 l wel correct? En wat is dat "friemeltje" bij A2a aan de rechterkant van de verticale streep?

DROPS Design 30.07.2017 kl. 21:49:

Hoi Nathalie, A.9 laat zien hoe de toer begint en eindigt. Aan het begin van de toer vervang je ieder stokje door 3 lossen en aan het eind van de toer maak je de toer af met een halve vaste in de eerste steek van de vorige toer. Onder de arm maak je dus 8 lossen (niet 8 + 3).
