Est-il possible d'avoir des explications plus claires pour le col et surtout plus détaillees car celles-ci me sont incompréhensibles. Merci par avance

DROPS Design 14.05.2019 kl. 16:06:

Bonjour Mme Teyssonnieres, le col se crochète sur 21 ml, soit 18 ms au 1er rang, on va ensuite crocheter des rangs raccourcis = des rangs avec des mailles de différentes hauteur aux rangs 2 et 3 pour que le col forme un arrondi. Répétez les rangs 2 à 5 jusqu'à ce que le côté le plus court mesure 8 cm (le dernier rang doit être fait sur l'envers), coupez le fil et crochetez maintenant la chaînette de l'épaule, puis le 1er rang de l'épaule, tournez, crochetez ensuite en point fantaisie en terminant en fin de rang par les mailles du col comme indiqué. Bon crochet!

I visited sеveral web pɑges however tһe audio feature fоr audio songs ρresent at tһіs site iѕ trսly wonderful.

Kajal 16.03.2018 - 20:14:

BACK PIECE: Right shoulder: Work 48-53-59-63 ch with 1 strand off white and 1 strand light pearl gray (= 2 strands) on hook size 6 mm / J/10. Cut the yarn and work left shoulder. I don't understand the instructions above. Am I supposed to chain 48 and then cut off the yarn?? Thank you for your response.

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Kajal, that's right, after having crochet the number of chains for your size cut the yarn and crochet left shoulder: same number of chains as for right shoulder, then 1st row over these chains, A.5 (= neck) and crochet now over the chain for right shoulder. Happy crocheting!

Carol Golob 14.09.2017 - 18:55:

Thank you very much for your prompt answer about the shawl collar. Your designs and yarn are beautiful. I am so glad to have found you on the web. I am going to show your products to the local yarn store so maybe I can purchase your yarn locally.

Carol Golob 13.09.2017 - 21:40:

Re Pattern z-770 How high does the collar go on the back of the neck? It would be helpful to have a second back or side view with the model's hair up. Thanks

DROPS Design 14.09.2017 kl. 10:36:

Dear Mrs Golob, this video shows a simple shawl collar (knitted but the idea is the same), the shawl collar before front piece will go from the middle of neckline on back piece to the top of shoulder. Happy crocheting!

Karen 20.08.2017 - 00:39:

Bonjour, J'ai besoin d'explications pour le devant droit/manche. Je dois continuer le point fantaisie sur les 18 mailles du col, mais voilà je sais que de dois le prendre à l'endroit mais dans quel sens ? Dois je crocheter au niveau du premier rang de ml ? Merci de votre retour.

DROPS Design 21.08.2017 kl. 09:13:

Bonjour Karen, tout d'abord il faut crocheter le col (sous forme de trapeze rectangle). Suivez scrupuleusement la partie DEVANT DROIT/MANCHE (crocheter le col). Bon travail!

Karen 20.08.2017 - 00:38:

Bonjour, J'ai besoin d'explications pour le devant droit/manche. Je dois continuer le point fantaisie sur les 18 mailles du col, mais voilà je sais que de dois le prendre à l'endroit mais dans quel sens ? Dois je crocheter au niveau du premier rang de ml ? Merci de votre retour.

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 12:12:

Bonjour Karen, le 1er rang point fantaisie sur les mailles de l'épaule se crochète sur l'endroit, reprenez les 18 mailles du col (= dernier rang sur l'envers) et crochetez ces mailles sur l'endroit. Bon crochet!

Sandrine 08.08.2017 - 15:28:

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas le diagramme A1a. Dans quel sens doit il être lu : dù bas vers le haut ou dù haut vers le bas ? D'autant que si on l'inclus le diagramme a5 n'est plus centré... Dans l'attente de votre aide Bien cordialement

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 09:01:

Bonjour Sandrine, tous les diagrammes se lisent de bas en haut, A.1a montre comment commencer et terminer les rangs (soit par 1 bride soit par 1 maille serrée en fonction de la taille et du rang). Bon crochet!

Helle 08.04.2017 - 17:41:

Umulig opskrift. Har kigget link - billeder passer ikke med beskrivelse. Helt i starten... start på 2.række i diag: Hækl A.1a – se diag for rigtig str (= 1 m), A.2 (= 5 st) 1-0-1-0 gange i bredden, A.3 (= 9 st) over de næste 36-45-45-54 st, A.5 over de 18 lm til hals, A.3 over de næste 36-45-45-54 st, A.4 1-0-1-0 gange, A.1a. ?????

Erika 26.03.2017 - 20:39:

Hej! Nu är jag nästan klar, men jag fick virka om flera gånger innan jag fick till kragen. Det blev inte bra förrän jag struntade i beskrivningen och gjorde så att formen stämde med videon på den stickade sjalkragen. Kan ni inte se över beskrivningen, jag tror inte att den stämmer? Till att börja med blir kragen olika bred på höger respektive vänster sida om man följer beskrivningen (2 resp 1 hst). .
