Hello, I really like this blanket pattern and would like to make it , however I find the pattern format totally confusing , I can not understand the diagrams and how it is all written out, please could you just upload a complete written pattern , the videos do not help , I made a drops shawl pattern and had the same problem , again the diagrams and videos did not help at all.

Dear Mrs Holland, start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side from RS towards left side: work A.1, A.2, then repeat A.3 a total of 21 times in width and finish with A.4. From WS read from the left towards the right: A.4, repeat A.3 and finish with A.2 and A.1. Each symbol match a stitch/group of stitch - see diagram key. Happy crocheting!

Hoppas att ni fixar diagramnyckeln snart dp symbolerna saknas! Kan ni redan nu förklara hur man ska virka själva spetsdelen (från varv 6)?

Diagrammet har försvunnet från mönstret😯

Hej Maj, jag ser det....

Dommage que la version française ne soit pas disponible pour le Canada.

Maud 24.03.2018 - 22:41:

Vad menas med andra varvet efter de första 6stolparna?stolpe i maskan?st i samma maska eller?virka ihop två st eller?\r\nFortsätter man mönstret sedan med A1,A2,A3ochA4?\r\nVarv fyra börjar man med 6st , 4st med 4 lm mellan och sen?\r\n12 st mellan de fyra hålen?\r\nFörstår inte var minskningarna är eftersom det är 139 lm uppläggning och efter första mönstervarvet 126 st +de tolv st i kanterna?

Hi Many thanks for your tutorial and videos

Nova 09.03.2018 - 06:10:

Someone asked you before but got no response. My question is the same. If I wanted to make a bigger blanket are there multiples? Would appreciate a reply. Thank you.

DROPS Design 09.03.2018 kl. 09:27:

Dear Nova, for a larger blanket, you will have to repeat A.3 in width as many time as required = 6 sts more for each A.3 in width. For any furhter individual assistance you are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. Thanks for your comprehension.

If I wanted to make this bigger what are the multiples please

Lolo Hultsten-Sandberg 08.01.2018 - 13:40:

Jag är i desperat behov att få hjälp med detta mönster. Virkat första varvet, 139 stolpar. Jag är bättre på att sticka men absolut ingen nybörjare. Förstår bara inte hur jag ska tänka. En kommentar säger sticka stolpar i alla maskor men mönstret tyder i nte på det?

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 17:47:

På de 3 första varven ska du virka 1 stolpe i varje maska. Du läser diagrammet från höger mot vänster på rätsidan och från vänster mot höger på avigsidan.

In the first row after the crochet chain it says to dc and then skip chain stitches. When we skip the chain stitches, do we do a chain stitch instead of a DC? If not, wouldn't the decrease in DCs over the chain stitches have a cinching effect?

DROPS Design 03.01.2018 kl. 14:24:

Dear Mrs Henry, to avoid first row being too tight, you will cast on more chain stitches and then skip evenly some chain sts on first row so that you get the correct number of stitches in width and that edge is elastic enough. Happy crocheting!
