I am on A1b, the second round, there are 2 slip stitches, 1 ch, then a gab over 2 dc stitches; what do I do over those stitches? Or am I suppose to slip stitch over to the 3rd dc. Thanks for your help. Laurie

Dear Laurie, the "gap" means you skip the next 2 sts and crochet 1 dc in the next dc (USEnglish). Happy crocheting!

Hi again Thank you for your really prompt and helpful answer. I realised as soon as I pressed Send that I'd said 3trb instead of the 4 triple/ double treble cluster thingies. I also thought it might be 5 chains but thought I'd check. So, thank you again for your help :) Kind regards Judith

Hi In round3 how many chains are worked in between each of the 3 trbs together? The diagram just shows a curved black line, which I assume denotes chain(s), but how many? Thank you.
05.02.2022  14:46DROPS Design answered:
Dear Judith, there are no 3 trb worked together, there are only clusters of 4 triple/ double treble crochets worked together. As you can see in the symbols above the diagrams, a curve = 5 chain stitches. You can check all the symbols and their meaning in the small section above the diagrams. Happy crocheting!

Hej! Jag ska precis börja med a.2.b. Det står i virkinfo att jag ska börja med 4lm. Ska jag göra de 4 luftmaskorna + de tre mm som är i början på diagrammet? Eller ersätter de 4 den första stolpen i stolpgruppen? Mvh Agnes

Hei Agnes. Det er bare på begynnelsen av hver rad/omgang med dobbeltstaver som erstattes med 4 luftmasker (altså A.2a, ikke A.2b), les evnt HEKLEINFO i oppskriften. God Fornøyelse!
