Hallo, ich arbeite das Modell in meiner Größe M. Meine Maschenprobe ist identisch, wie in der Anleitung. Die Höhe der Passe ist 18cm. Leider bin ich - nach Anprobe - noch einiges von meiner Achsel entfernt, müsste also weitere Rd. häkeln. Lt. Anleitung und lt. meiner Arbeit habe ich 48M zwischen den Markern für den Ärmel + 8LM unter der Achsel = 56M. Da komme ich aber selbst mit Geduld und Spucke nicht mit meinem Arm hinein bzw. der Ärmel spannt unkomfortabel. Was tun?

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 10:53:

Liebe B"Tina, wir können leider nicht jede Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen, aber in Ihrem Fall können Sie vielleicht einige extra Runde in A.3 häkeln, dann A.1 bei der nächsten Runde weiterhäkeln damit das Muster in der Höhe stimmt, probieren Sie mal ob es so klappt oder nicht; Bei individuelle Anfragen nehmen Sie bitte Kontakt mit Ihrem Laden auf. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Sandra 31.07.2019 - 02:44:

I just finished the 6th round with the DC where you increase in a.1. The pattern then says REPEAT diagram a.1 so many times between specific markers and work a.2 as before. Am I going back to the arrow on a.1 and repeating the rows I just did? Or am I continuing into a.1a and a.2 all the way up the pattern? Thank you!

DROPS Design 08.08.2019 kl. 11:28:

Dear Sandra, after you have increased on row 6 in A.1 (dc row), crochet row 7 as shown in diagram as before. Since you increased some stitches, you will have more repeats of A.1 between the markers, A.2 is worked as before. Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 02.07.2019 - 11:34:

I want to know what round should be on for 2nd round of under arm where says for all sizes & Dec 4 I'm doing m size. Gosh why this pattern so hard to understand it's driving me crazy

DROPS Design 02.07.2019 kl. 11:45:

Dear Sylvia, when working body you are continuing with A.1a from yoke and dc in the stitches under sleeves, you then decrease on next round worked entirely with dc in A.1a, depending on your tension and size, the row may be different, it just need to be a row worked with only dc (= like row 1, 3, 5... in A.1a). Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 01.07.2019 - 16:42:

I'm stuck on beginning body where says all sizes says on first round with dc Dec 4 dc evenly where do I place them? And what row do I start as finished on fan st ie 3dc 2ch 3dc. So do I miss out nxt ch row ?

DROPS Design 02.07.2019 kl. 08:38:

Dear Sylvie, you will have to decrease on next round worked with dc, ie continue diagram to the next round with only dc, then decrease 4 dc evenly on the round - calculate here where to decrease. Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 24.06.2019 - 10:54:

I don't think you understood my question. It's the last 2 rows of A2 row below has 1ch starting beginning & end then also same on A1 . So what do I do after ch1 ie another ch1 or dc in between as when do the last round not enough sts

DROPS Design 24.06.2019 kl. 11:10:

Dear Sylvia, sorry for misunderstanding, yes you start each A.1a with 1 ch, and ends with 1 ch, ie you will have 2 chains between each treble (UK English)/double crochet (US English) on next to last row in A.2 - and also 2 chains at the transition between A.1/A.2 and A.2/A.1. Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 23.06.2019 - 16:10:

I'm struggling with round 13 where starts with 1 ch either end. Do I carry it over so always 2 ch? But when do nxt round is it 1 dc 3dc 2dc in frequency as don't work out right. I've undone this pattern so many times. Never struggled with anything so much!

DROPS Design 24.06.2019 kl. 08:06:

Dear Sylvia, not sure which round you are meaning sorry, but every round starts with A.4 (= 1 or 3 chains) and this stitch replace 1st stitch on the round (see CROCHET INFO), ie when you have to start with 1 chain this replace the first dc on round, then crochet the next chains/the next trebles as shown in diagram, and finish round with 1 slip stitch in the chain from beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 11.06.2019 - 12:00:

One more question why do have more sts at beginning each row ie sleeve wider than rest? I'm following pattern as says

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 12:45:

Dear Sylvia, you will increase the number of stitches in A.2 in diagram - the number of sts in A.1 will increase only when explained depending on the size. Happy crocheting!

Sylvia Luft 09.06.2019 - 16:33:

I'm stuck on beginning of row 5 as looks like 1dc 1ch 1dc but when get to nxt row don't look right. It looks bigger than other sts. Am I doing it wrong

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 11:14:

Dear Mrs Luft, on row 5 in A.1 and A.2 you will see the 6th symbol (in A.1) and the 5th and 6th symbol (in A.2), ie you will crochet either only 1 dc around ch-space (= in A.1 = 3 dc around each 3-ch-space) either 1 dc around ch-space or 1 dc in the stitch (= in A.2: 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc around ch-space, 1 dc in next dc, 4 dc around 4-ch-space, 5 dc around 4-ch-space). Happy crocheting!

Sylvia 08.06.2019 - 17:32:

I don't understand what is A1 A2

DROPS Design 08.06.2019 kl. 19:57:

Dear Sylvia, A1 and A2 are patterns - please see diagrams under the written pattern. Happy crocheting!

Ami Ball 19.05.2019 - 06:49:

I am not sure which size I should choose since this pattern only indicates by S, M, L, etc.

DROPS Design 19.05.2019 kl. 10:04:

Dear Ami, scrolling down the page, you can find the sketch with the final measures. Compare it with a garment you have and you like the shape and you can find the right size. Happy crocheting!
