Ik heb een vraag over de eerste drie toeren: 1e toer: klopt het dat ik aan het einde 3 lossen en 27 stokjes heb? 2e toer: moet er tussen elk stokje een losse? Als ik het patroon goed snap is het 2 stokjes, 1 losse, maar als ik de foto bekijk lijkt het erop dat er na elk stokje een losse zit. 3e toer: is eigenlijk dezelfde vraag als bij de 2e toer: zit er tussen elk stokje 2 lossen? Alvast dank voor het antwoord.

Dag JoAnnah,

Je herhaalt A.1 13 keer in de breedte, dus na de eerste toer heb je dan 13 stokjes op de toer. Op de 2e toer is het inderdaad 1 losse, 1 stokje, 1 losse, enz. Bij de derde toer haak je steeds 1 stkokje, 2 lossen, 1 stokje, 2 lossen enz.

Salve volevo sapere quando si inizia il mezzo cerchio e si devono fare sul rovescio del lavoro le catenelle e le maglie bassissime ,con quale colore devo lavorare? il colore del precedente o del successivo?? certa di una vostra celere risposta (come già altre volte avete fatto) vi auguro buona giornata

DROPS Design 05.07.2017 kl. 09:58:

Buongiorno Franca. Deve lavorare con il colore successivo. Buon lavoro!

Hei! Jeg har begynt med dette sjalet og er ferdig med den første sirkelen. Når jeg begynner på første halvsirkel kan jeg ikke se at det er forklart hvor mange staver på første sirkel som skal hoppes over hver gang jeg skal feste halvsirkelen til forrige sirkel/halvsirkel. Kan noen forklare dette?

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 08:25:

Hei Nina. Du finner informasjonen under HEKLEINFO HALVSIRKEL, øverst i oppskriften. God Fornøyelse!

Dorte Hvalsøe 30.05.2017 - 23:22:

Bruges der hæklenål nr 3.5 eller 4.5? Begge nåle fremgår i opskriften.

DROPS Design 31.05.2017 kl. 09:53:

Hei Dorte. Her har det sneket seg inn en feil. Det skal være heklenål nr. 4,5. Vi skal få rettet dette opp asap. Takk for at du gjorde oss oppmerksom på dette og god fornøyelse med å hekle dette flotte sjalet.

Åshild Aspøy 16.05.2017 - 16:00:

Hei, Drops. Jeg vil bare si i fra om at denne oppskriften opererer både med nål nr 3,5 og 4,5, ulikt mellom søk, overskrift og selve oppskriftsteksten. Vennligst, Åshild :-)

Wat betekenen het roze diamant-icoontje en het klokje rechtsbovenin de foto's?

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 15:01:

Hoi Leonore. Dat het patroon te zien is op de voorpagina van de site (featured).

El chal es precioso, pero no puedo ver las explicaciones. ¿ Como podria hacerlo ?
