CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc row with 3 ch (does not replace first dc).
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

INCREASE TIP-1:
Work 2 dc with same color in 1 dc on previous row.

COLOR PATTERN (worked back and forth):
When changing color work as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next dc. When working with two color place strand for the color not worked over sts from previous row/round, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows when working. Make sure to avoid tights yarn and not to tighten yarn when picking it up from previous row/round.

COLOR PATTERN (worked in the round):
Work as COLOR PATTERN (worked back and forth) but: Replace first dc with ch 3, if last dc on previous round and first dc on next round are different color work last dc as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, then work 3 ch (= beg of round).

DECREASE TIP:
Work until 4 dc remain before marker, work 2 dc tog, work 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, (marker is in the middle of these sts), work the next 2 dc tog (= 2 dc dec). Repeat at both markers.

INCREASE TIP-2:

Jetzt habe ich die Idee, mit meinen Zuschauern zusammen als "CAL" eine Jacke zu häkeln und möchte Sie auf diesem Wege fragen, ob da etwas von Ihrer Seite dagegen sprechen würde...\rFalls Sie Interesse an dem Thema haben und vielleicht auch Ihre Wolle passend zum Projekt zeigen wollen, wäre ich sehr an einer Kooperation interessiert.Über Ihr Interesse und eine Rückmeldung würde ich mich sehr freuen. Liebe Grüße,Alexandra Korfmann (Wolleule)

DROPS Design 15.06.2018 kl. 11:23:

Liebe Frau Korfman, Danke für Ihre Anfrage. Schreiben Sie uns bitte media @garnstudio.com (ohne Leerstelle)

Alexandra Korfmann 15.06.2018 - 09:49:

Hallo liebes Drops-Team, ich heiße Alexandra und habe einen Youtube-Channel rund ums Häkeln (Wolleule)Ein paar Ihrer Häkeljacken-Modelle habe ich in meinem letzten Podcast vorgestellt, weil ich mir gern einen Cardigan häkeln würde und mir die Modelle Helsinki, Sweet Mint und der Pulli Nordic Fling besonders gefallen... s. 2. Frage

Mary 11.04.2018 - 13:14:

I str. M slutter række 9 med 229 st. Det kan jeg ikke få til at gå op med række 10, hvor der hækles 4+16+21+24+21+40+21+24+21+16+4+1= 213 st. Der mangler altså 16 st. Hvordan skal række 10 hækles, så mønsteret går op?

Mary 27.03.2018 - 12:33:

What is back and forth crothet?

DROPS Design 27.03.2018 kl. 20:40:

Dear Mary, "back and forth" means crochet/knit in rows - when you finish one row (from right side of piece), just turn piece and work back (wrong side). Piece is not joined into circle. Happy crocheting!

Sara 22.01.2018 - 23:50:

Hei😊 hvor er omg. 3 og 4? Det hopper jo rett fra omg. 2 til 5? Ser at en til har Spørt om det samme og fikk til svar fra dere at hun skal se på svare til mette. Men finner ikke det svaret.

DROPS Design 26.01.2018 kl. 11:18:

Hei Sara. Det er kun forklart de radene det det er økninger (utenom økningen i diagrammene), så når du kommer til 3. og 4. rad hekler du etter diagrammene. I 5.rad hekler du også etter diagrammene, men også forklaringene til økningene i teksten. God Fornøyelse!

Emelie 29.12.2017 - 14:13:

Finns denna som barnmönster? 5-6 år

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 14:06:

Hej, tyvärr har vi inte denna modell i storlek för barn.

Nienke 29.12.2017 - 13:57:

Ik ben bij de toer waarbij ik de armgaten (50 steken) moet overslaan. Ik moet dan 8 lossen haken voordat ik verder kan gaan met de stokjes. Moet ik eerst een hv maken en dan 8 lossen? Of gewoon een losse lossenketting?

DROPS Design 29.12.2017 kl. 19:43:

Hoi Nienke, Je haakt inderdaad 8 lossen, je slaat 50 stokjes over en haakt dan weer verder. Je hoeft niet eerst een halve vaste te haken, dan had dat er wel bij gestaan.

Cindy 30.11.2017 - 14:23:

Gibt es für diese Jacke auch eine Anleitung für ein Baby in Größe 74/80? Das wär super danke!!!

DROPS Design 30.11.2017 kl. 15:47:

Liebe Cindy, so eine Jacket haben wir nicht in dieser Größe, hier finden Sie unsere Anleitung für Baby, wahrscheinlich können Sie sich davon inspirieren. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Lene 23.11.2017 - 20:01:

“Stoler” er selvfølgelig stangmasker.....dumme autocorrect

Lene 23.11.2017 - 20:00:

Hvad betyder det, når jeg skal lave to stoler de næste 0 st? Skal de så ikke hækles? (Jeg er igang med række 1, str L)

DROPS Design 05.12.2017 kl. 15:06:

Hej, det betyder at A.2 kun skal hækles i de størrelser hvor det står et tal (det vil sige ikke i L). God fornøjelse!
