Bonjour, J'aimerais faire ce modèle mais je ne sais pas quelle quantité de laine commander

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 09:27:

Bonjour Mme Mourdon, vous trouverez la quantité nécessaire pour chaque taille indiquée au poids sous l'en-tête, 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!

Willa 22.09.2018 - 21:44:

The very first row of this pattern says \\\"skip ch 1\\\"? What exactly does this mean?

DROPS Design 22.09.2018 kl. 22:41:

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!

Sharon 14.07.2018 - 19:11:

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

DROPS Design 15.07.2018 kl. 14:36:

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!

Marie 25.06.2018 - 06:07:

Sur l’epaule Gauche on doute faire a5 a2 et a3 Doit on faire a5 de droite vers la gauche et a2 et a3 aussi de droite vers gauche et ensuite le contraire

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 09:23:

Bonjour Marie, pour l'épaule gauche, on crochète les diagrammes comme indiqué dans la réponse précédente, soit sur l'endroit: A.5, A.2, A.3 et sur l'envers: A.3, A.2, A.5. Bon crochet!

Marie 25.06.2018 - 05:59:

Pour débuter nous devons faire a1 a2 A4 Est ce que c’est toujours de droite vers gauche et rang suivant de gauche vers droite

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Marie, crochetez les diagrammes en commençant sur l'endroit, en bas à droite et lisez les rangs sur l'endroit de droite à gauche sur l'endroit et ceux sur l'envers de gauche à droite sur l'envers. Bon crochet!

Marie 25.06.2018 - 05:57:

Moi sa ne fonctionne pas du tout \\r\\nAu début on doit faire a1 a2 A4 doit on suite toujours le patron de droite vers gauche et prochain rang de gauche vers droite

Na het haken van beide schouders en deze aan elkaar vast te hebben gezet, bezig met toer 7 echter hoe ik ook tel ik kom niet uit met het aantal steken in A2 (165 steken). Beide schouders over 78 steken gehaakt en als ik reken is 78 + 78 gelijk aan 156 + 4 kantsteken, dat is 160 steken dus hoe kan ik dan het patroon over A2 dan haken over 165 steken zoals in het patroon vermeld staat?? HELP.

Ursula CHEVALLIER 16.05.2018 - 16:15:

Guten Tag, ich häkele Gr. S/M und habe 63 St. auf 80 Maschen in der 1.Reihe. Mit Beginn des Diagramms A1,2,3 hatte ich plötzlich 78 St. , weil ich über die Luftm. zwischen den 4 St. der Vorderreihe auch St. häkelte. Ich sollte vielleicht nur über die 63 ST. weiterhäkeln. Dann ergibt es eine insgesamte Maschenreduktion von 15. Ist das richtig ???Bitte bestätigen. Danke

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 07:55:

Liebe Frau Chevallier, A.1, A.2 und A.3 werden über die 63 Stb der 1. Reihe gehäkelt - bei der 1. Reihe in A.1-A.3 haben Sie 3 D-Stb (A.1), 3 x 5 DStb (A.2) und 3 D-Stb (A.3) und bei der 2. Reihe in A.1-3 sollen Sie wieder 63 Stb haben (= 7 Stb in A.1, 15 Stb in jedem A.2 x 3 (= 45 Stb) und 9 Stb in A.3) - Markierer zwischen jedem Rapport einsetzen kann Ihnen helfen, die richtigen Maschenanzahl zu behalten. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Ursula CHEVALLIER 15.05.2018 - 23:52:

Bonjour, J\\\'ai comme vous aviez indiqué 63 brides sur 80 mailles . MAIS: en rg 1 du diagramme (A1,2,3) j\\\'ai en tout 78 brides, car j\\\'ai fait aussi une brides au dessus des ml entre les 4 brides du rg précédent. S\\\'il ne fallait pas le faire, c\\\'est vrai que le travail continue sur 63 brides ...mais dans ce cas il y a une diminution de 15 mailles (brides) après le 1ier rang. Veuillez me confirmer SVP, car en ce moment je me trouve dans un brouillard.

DROPS Design 16.05.2018 kl. 09:31:

Bonjour Mme Chevallier, au 1er rang (= sur les 63 brides), on crochète ainsi: (côté droit): 2 brides, A.1 (au-dessus des 7 b suivantes), A.2 sur 45 b (= 3 fois A.2), et A.4 (= au-dessus des 9brides suivantes), vous crochetez ainsi bien sur 63 brides (=2+7+45+9). Mettez bien un marqueur entre chaque diagramme à répéter pour bien vous repérer entre les différents diagrammes. Bon crochet!

CHEVALLIER Ursula 14.05.2018 - 16:01:

Important !!!!! bonjour, plusieurs femmes avec moi ont trouvé 185 B en rg 12 au lieu de 155 B , avant de commencer A6-A10. L'erreur est dans le 1ier rang: 63 B....mais sur 78 mailles qui vont donner 78 B en rg 3 !!! calculez comme suit: 2 x 78 b (l'épaule d + g)= 156 B + (2 x 7 = 14 B (l'arrondissement du cou entre rg 4 et rg 7 )= 170 B + 15 (= les 15 ml pour la connexion entre A4 et A5 en rg 7) = 185 !!! Veuilllez corriger svp.

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 10:09:

Bonjour Mme Chevallier, au 1er rang vous devez avoir 63 brides sur les 80 ml: 1 bride dans la 4ème ml (= 2 brides / 4 ml), 1 bride dans la ml suivante, puis (on saute 1ml, et on crochète 1 bride dans chacune des 4 ml suivantes) x 15 (= on va crocheter 15 x 4 brides au-dessus de 15 x 5 ml soit 60 brides au-dessus de 75 ml), on a donc bien 63 brides sur 80 ml. Bon crochet!
