Bonjour, Le schéma A13 ne devraitil pas se faire sur 7 brides au lieu des 9 indiquées ? Je suis allée voir dans le modèle original et là ils écrivent bien sur 7 brides je crois. Neste rad (= fra retten) hekles slik: Hekle 1 st i hver av de første 2 st, A.11 over de neste 7 st, A.12 over de neste 135165195 st (= 91113 ganger), A.13 over de neste 7 st, avslutt med 1 st i hver av de neste 2 st. Hekle A.11/A.12/A.13 totalt 1 gang i høyden.

Bonjour Lucette, effectivement, mais l'erreur vient probablement de la correction lorsqu'elle a été faite en norvégien, car A.13 se crochète bien sur 9 brides comme le montre le schéma: 2 brides, A.11 (= 7 m) A.12 (= 135165195 m), A.13 (= 9 m), 2 b= 2+7+135165195+9+2=155185215 m. Merci pour votre retour, la correction va être faite. Bon crochet!

Hello, I have completed the front and I am about to start the back. I am confused as how to start. Do I chain and continue, then sew the shoulder seams? Or do I crochet into the beginning chain of the front? Thanks!
28.07.2020  17:57DROPS Design answered:
Dear RaeGina, the shoulders on back piece are worked in the chain stitches of shoulders on front piece, ie instead of starting with the foundation chain, crochet 1 single crochet in each of the given double crochets of the shoulder, front piece. Happy crocheting!

Pour moi le rang 7 est sur l'envers et non sur l'endroit ? faut il joindre en fin de 6ème rang par une mc ou au milieu du 7ème rang ? et comment ? je suis complètement perdue impossible de comprendre le diagramme
10.06.2020  09:35DROPS Design answered:
Bonjour Laurie, le 1er rang des diagrammes a été crocheté sur l'endroit, tous les rang impairs sont donc sur l'endroit, y compris le 7ème rang. Les 2 épaules sont assemblées entre elles à la fin du 6ème rang de l'épaule gauche (= 1 mc dans l'épaule droite). Bon crochet!

Merci pour votre réponse! Pour moi le 1er "endroit" était juste, c'est le suivant et tout ce qui suit qui est inversé. Du moins il me semble en tous les cas c'est comme ça que j'ai fait^^ merci encore!

Bonjour Paige, il semble effectivement que les rangs envers/endroit ont été inversés, nos stylistes vont vérifier pour que la correction soit faite, merci. Bon crochet!

Bonjour Merci pour ce modèle que je me régale à crocheter! Il me semble qu'il y a une erreur sur l'indication endroit/envers car pour le devant il est écrit: "Crocheter le rang suivant (= sur l'ENDROIT) ainsi: (...) Crocheter le rang suivant (= sur l'ENDROIT)" 2 rangs de suite à l'endroit? c'est impossible non?merci beaucoup

Bonjour Paige et merci, effectivement, après A.X et A.Y (devant), le rang suivant se crochète sur l'envers = 155185215 B, puis on crochète le rang suivant sur l'endroit. La correction a été faite, merci. Bon crochet!

Ik loop vast! Ik ben bij de rechterschouder en ben begonnen met 98 steken ben nu in de rij waar ik in A1 7 steken 3 lossen en dan een vaste moet doen en ze zeggen dan de volgende 60 steken als A2 dan hebben ze het over A4 nog 9 steken. Valt A3 nu weg ? En ga ik over in A4 of komt A4 gewoon na A3 alleen 78 min min 7 A1 en min 60 A2 dan hou ik er nog 11 over. Heb ik iets fout gedaan.

Dag Debby,
Voor de rechter schouder hoef je A.3 inderdaad niet te haken en haak je inderdaad A.4.

Bonjour, J'aimerais faire ce modèle mais je ne sais pas quelle quantité de laine commander
09.01.2019  21:18DROPS Design answered:
Bonjour Mme Mourdon, vous trouverez la quantité nécessaire pour chaque taille indiquée au poids sous l'entête, par ex, en taille S/M il faut 650 g DROPS Cotton Merino / 50 g la pelote = 13 pelotes en taille S/M. Bon crochet!

The very first row of this pattern says \\\"skip ch 1\\\"? What exactly does this mean?
22.09.2018  21:44DROPS Design answered:
Dear Willa, this means skip 1 chain stitch from the beginning chain row  so you will crochet not into this chain stitch, but into the next one. Happy crocheting!

Hi there, I'm slightly confused  it says you work the pattern back and forth from top down. Do you also read the pattern graphic back and forth or only from the right? Or do you need to work rows 3  6 in one direction only in order to get increases in A.4? Many thanks Sharon
14.07.2018  19:11DROPS Design answered:
Hi Sharon, You read the diagram starting at the bottom, from right to left when working from the right side and from left to right on the wrong side. Happy crocheting!
