Is hier ook een patroon van voor volwassenen

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 11:16:

Dag Joke,

Nee, helaas is er alleen een patroon voor kinderen. Je zou hem wat langer kunnen maken als je hem voor een volwassene maakt. Hij wordt van onder naar boven gehaakt, dus je kan hem tijdens het haken steeds even passen.

Daniela Becherer 09.12.2018 - 21:23:

Hallo liebes Drops Team ,\\r\\nIch finde eure Anleitungen echt super. Komme aus dem stricken/häckeln gar nicht mehr raus. \\r\\nAber leider habe ich bei jedem Modell wo ich arbeite jede Menge wolle übrig. \\r\\nDas ist echt ärgerlich... Gerne würde ich mein Geld in neue wolle für ein neues Model ausgeben...\\r\\nKönnt ihr da mal etwas weniger großzügig in der Berechnung sein? \\r\\nViele Grüße \\r\\nD. Becherer

Birgit 03.12.2018 - 22:49:

Teen haikala sabauime ja tâpselt õpetuse järgi ning uim ei tule üldse selline nagu peaks. Õpetuses on et ühte poolt kasvatad ju koguaeg ja ringselt heegeldan aga vot ei tule välja. Ehk oskate täpsemalt lahti seletada sabauime õpetust?

Marijke Frijters 19.11.2018 - 19:53:

Is dit patroon ook als briepatroon beschikbaar, mijn kleinzoon wil nadat ik de zeemeermin deken voor zijn zus heb gemaakt , graag de haai, maar ik veel beter breien.

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 11:22:

Dag Marijke,

Nee, helaas is hier alleen een haakpatroon voor.

Conny Van Aken 16.10.2018 - 18:21:

Ik wil graag deze haai deken maken van een acryl garen, heeft u een alternatief garen dat ik kan gebruiken zonder het patron aan te hoeven passen? Dank u wel Conny

DROPS Design 24.10.2018 kl. 21:56:

Dag Conny Van Aken,

Helaas hebben we geen acrylgarens in ons assortiment. Als je het patroon niet aan wilt passen is het het handigst om een garen te zoeken waarvan de stekenverhouding overeenkomt met de stekenverhouding in het patroon. Meestal staat deze wel op de wikkel van het garen.

Such a lovely blanket! Made for a 5 year old boy as a birthday present and everybody lobed it. The pattern is easy to follow even if you have not done much crocheting.

Alexandra 07.09.2018 - 14:05:

Hallo Ich habe die Anleitung gelesen und auch Wolle gekauft und versuche nun zu verstehen, warum die Startluftmaschen zu einem Ring geschlossen werden soll , wenn in hin und Rück Reihen gearbeitet wird und erst am Schluss der Schlitz zugenäht wird. Vielen Dank für ein Feedback. Gruss Alexandra

DROPS Design 07.09.2018 kl. 16:27:

Liebe Alexandra, es wird so gehäkelt, um die gewüschte Textur/Muster zu bekommen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

I oppskriften til haiteppe er det oppgitt 450 g mørk grå dette må være feil jeg brukte knapt 4 nøster

Carolien 16.07.2018 - 06:58:

Hallo ik wil graag twee van deze dekens haken voor mijn kleinzoons maar in de beschrijving staan haak een ketting van lossen en sluit de ring en als ik verder les staat er plaats het lijf dubbel met de split in het midden van het werk zodat je aan de Bin kunt beginnen,mijn vraag is haak je nu in het rond of heen en weer

DROPS Design 16.07.2018 kl. 12:12:

Hallo Carolien, Je haakt steeds heen en weer, maar je sluit wel steeds elke toer (zie bij informatie voor het haken)

Nina 24.04.2018 - 21:19:

Det står i oppskriften at denne også kan strikkes, hvor mange masker skal da legges opp til kropp og finne?

DROPS Design 26.04.2018 kl. 09:31:

Hej Nina, ikke denne, men vi har en lille havfrue som kan strikkes Cute Mermaid Blanket
