Jeg er nybegynder og allerede forvirret ved huen! Under hækleinfo står der at første fm i hver omgang erstattes med en lm. Så i 4.omgang, hvor der står at jeg skal lave 1 fm i hver af de 2 første fm, skal jeg bare lave 1 fm,da den første allerede er erstattet af 1 lm? Syntes det er kringlet beskrevet, så er i tvivl om jeg gør det rigtigt. Som nybegynder kunne det være rart med en lidt mere udpenslet opskrift.

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 13:14:

Hei Line, ja det stemmer! 4.omgang starter med 1 luftmaske som erstatter første fastmaske, hopp da over den første fastmasken på forrige omgang og hekle 1 fastmaske i neste maske. God hekling:)

Ida-Maria Skavhaug 14.10.2017 - 00:53:

Heklenaal NR 6 staar det i starten (12fmx14 rad paa 10cmx10cm) -- men i oppskrift paa lue saa staar det jo NR 5. Hvor mange fm per rad da? Jeg strever litt for aa faa rett fasthet her...

DROPS Design 15.10.2017 kl. 13:36:

Hei Ida-Maria, Det står hekle nål nr 5 på lua (nr 6 på halsen) og da får du 14 fm x 17 rader på 10 x 10 cm. Husk at pinnestørrelsen er bare veiledende! God fornøyelse!

Sanne 12.09.2017 - 07:13:

12 og 13 omg, skal de også hækles i bagerste led? Flot hue.

DROPS Design 12.09.2017 kl. 07:18:

Hei Sanne. Ja, og det fortsettes med å hekle 1 fm i bakre ledd av hver fm til arb måler 18-19 cm. God Fornøyelse!

Lucie 22.04.2017 - 14:03:

Dobrý den. Nemohu se háčkem C5 napasovat do zkušebního vzorku.asi hodně utahují ale nepřijde mi.no na 10cm se dostanu háčkem C.8 nechápu.pak mám velké díry takže takto asi ne. Co byste poradili?Chci zkusit čepici uháčkovat.dekuji

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 07:10:

Dobrý den, pro začátek doporučuji ověřit velikost háčku, s nímž pracujete - máte-li přízi Nepal, je vhodný háček č.5 nebo 5,5. Pakliže vám tato síla nevyhovuje, nepomůže nic jiného, než zkoušet postupně různé velikosti a najít tu, která bude právě vám "sedět" nejvíc. Pozor také na číslování velikosti háčků! Pro srovnání jednotlivých typů číslování viz tabulku Převody měr a velikostí . Hodně zdaru! Hana

Mössa varv 4: hur ska man göra för att kolla virkfastheten?

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 14:14:

Virkfastheten bör du alltid kontrollera innan du börjar virka själva arbetet. I detta fall ska du ha 14 fm x 17 rader på 10 x 10 cm. Då gäller det att virka en provlapp som är litet större än 10 x 10 cm och mäta så att du har rätt mask- och varvantal på 10 x 10 cm. Ifall du har för många maskor/varv bör du byta till en grövre virknål och om du har för få maskor/varv byter du till en mindre nål.

Karin 08.04.2017 - 22:55:

Gäller VIRKINFO alla varv eller bara varv 1?

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 14:09:

Virkinfot gäller alla varv.

Rachel Selway 05.02.2017 - 05:27: https://www.garnstud ...

I am really confused by the star pattern at the beginning. I have watched your videos on it but the videos always show working the star pattern when you have already some more rows and stitches on the work. So when the star pattern is done, you work it on the chain three, but also have other stitches in which to pick up five from. How do you pick up five when you only have three chains on the row? I have tried and tried but cannot figure it out

DROPS Design 06.02.2017 kl. 10:10:

Dear Mrs Selway, when crocheting 1st row on star pattern on the fundation chain, crochet 3 ch, then pick up 1 st in the 2nd + 3rd ch from hook, then pick up 1 st in the next 3 ch on fundation chain = 6 loops on hook. Happy knitting!

Rikke 04.02.2017 - 22:52:

2.runde i stjernemønster i huen siger at man lander på 34-36 stjerner. Det kan jeg ikke få til at passe med de 69 masker der er... Er det en fejl eller har jeg misforstået vejledningen?

Sunny 21.12.2016 - 21:32:

BOTH SIZES: Piece measures approx. 7-8 cm / 2 3/4"-3". Continue to work 1 sc in back loop of every sc until piece measures 18-19 cm / 7"-7½'' When I measure from center to edge I get 3". When I fold it in half an measure across I get 7 " Either way this is way too small for an adult hat. Should I keep increasing until I get the correct circumference?

DROPS Design 22.12.2016 kl. 09:43:

Dear Sunny, remember to check and keep your tension, you should have 14 sc x 17 rows = 4"x4" - hat will be slightly tighter than the circumference of head so that it will keep on head. You can then adjust inc in width to fit the desired circumference. Happy crocheting!

Gertrud 06.12.2016 - 23:25:

Mir kommen die 18 cm bis zum sternenmuster so wenig vor. Stimmen die wirklich? Wie lange ist das sternenmuster?

DROPS Design 07.12.2016 kl. 09:23:

Liebe Gertrud, Sie können gerne daneben eine kleine Maschenprobe im Sternenmuster häkeln, so könen Sie die 18 cm wie Sie es lieber haben anpassen, dh länger oder nicht häkeln bis das Sternenmuster. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!
