COLOR CHANGE TIP:
To get a nice transition when switching color work last yarn over and pull through on last stitch before switching color with the new color, then continue with the new color.

TIP FOR FASTENING STRANDS:
To avoid sewing many strands after color change work the first 2 double crochets/single crochets at beginning of every row with new color with double yarn (in the same color). This is done as follows: Make sure to leave a long yarn end (approx. 20-25 cm / 8"-9 3/4'') when switching color, work yarn end together with strand from ball. Then place yarn end along stitches from previous row and work around it so that the yarn end is hidden inside the stitches. In addition should the yarn end left at the end of row also be placed along the stitches when turning the piece to work around this yarn end as well. The way the strands are fastened without using a needle.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch in each side inside the 2 outermost stitches in each side. Decrease by skipping last stitch in each side before the 2 outermost stitches. It is difficult to predict where the decrease is done in the pattern, the decreases are therefore not in any chart, but try to adjust to a row with double crochets/chain stitch (not large chain spaces).

INCREASE TIP (applies to bottom of sleeves):
Increase 1 stitch by working 2 single crochets in 1 stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
Work front and back piece back and forth in parts. First work right shoulder at the front with increase for neck, then work left shoulder at the front with increase for neck before pieces are put together then work back and forth until finished measurements. Work back piece the same way. Work sleeves back and forth, top down.

RIGHT SHOULDER FRONT (when garment is worn):

AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', decrease 1 stitch in each side - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this approx. every 5-4½-3½-3-2½-2½ cm / 2"-1 3/4"-1 1/4"-1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8'' 7-7-9-9-10-10 times in total in each side = 31-31-33-33-37-37 stitches on row. When sleeve measures approx. 33-31-30-28-27-26 cm (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders) work with gray blue from now on.

= single crochet around chain stitch
= double crochet in stitch
= double crochet around chain stitch/chain space
= 3 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER IN STITCH: Work 2 double crochets in next single crochet but wait with last yarn over and pull through on both these double crochets, work 1 double crochet in same stitch and pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook
= 3 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER AROUND CHAIN STITCH/CHAIN SPACE: Work 2 double crochets around chain stitch/chain space but wait with last yarn over and pull through on both these double crochets, work 1 double crochet around same chain stitch/chain space and pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook
= first row is not worked, it has already been worked and only shows how next row should be worked in stitches

Opis dla rękawów mówi, żeby zamknąć 1 oczko z każdej strony gdy długość robótki wynosi 2 cm. Czy te 2 cm mam liczyć od początku robótki, czy od rozpoczęcia wykonywania schematu A2? I kolejne pytanie - co to znaczy zamykać oczka w odległości 2 oczek od brzegu? Czy oznacza to, że na początku rzędu mam przerobić 2 oczka i potem zamknąć następne oczko, tzn, przerobić razem trzecie i czwarte, a na końcu rzędu przerobić razem dwa oczka przed ostatnimi dwoma oczkami?

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 18:55:

Witaj Małgosiu! Pierwsze pytanie - te 2 cm liczysz od początku (góry) rękawa. Drugie pytanie - na początku rzędu: przerabiasz normalnie 2 pierwsze oczka (1 oczko w każde oczko), omijasz następne oczko (trzecie oczko w poprzednim rzędzie) i wykonujesz 1 oczko w czwarte oczko (4 oczka przechodzą w 3 oczka). Na końcu rzędu, jak zostają 3 oczka do końca: omijasz 1 oczko i przerabiasz 2 ostatnie oczka. Miłej pracy!

Małgorzata 31.03.2019 - 14:46:

Mam pytanie odnośnie połączenia ramion tyłu swetra. Wykonałam wg opisu najpierw ramie lewe, potem ramię prawe, na końcu którego wykonałam 29 oczek łańcuszka (wg opisu oba ramiona strona lewa). Dalej opis mówi, żeby zacząć od prawego ramienia na prawej stronie robótki. Kiedy obracam robótkę (to prawe ramię) to na początku jest łańcuszek a po nim dalsza część prawego ramienia, więc jak mam połączyć go z lewym?

DROPS Design 01.04.2019 kl. 20:01:

Witaj Małgosiu! Zakończyłaś prawe i lewe ramię na prawej stronie robótki, teraz połącz łańcuszek prawego ramienia z lewym ramieniem za pomocą 1 oczka zamykającego. Teraz bierzesz nową nitkę i zaczynasz kolejny rząd ponownie na prawej stronie i przerabiasz zaczynając od prawego ramienia, dalej łańcuszek i lewe ramię następująco: schemat A.1A (= 2 oczka), A.1B ponad 60-66-72-78-84-90 następnymi oczkami (= 10-11-12-13-14-15 motywów po 6 oczek) i zakończyć przerabiając A.1E (= 7 oczek). Powodzenia!

Ik haak maat S. Als ik de eerste toer waarbij schouder, lussen van de halen andere schouder met elkaar verbonden worden, kom ik uit op 9 herhalingen van 6 steken en eindigend op 7 steken. Moeten de losse voor de hals niet met 6 lossen vermeerderd worden?

DROPS Design 07.03.2019 kl. 20:10:

Dag Annette

Als je beide schouders hebt gehaakt heb je 69 steken op de toer: 26 van de linker schouder, 26 van de rechter schouder en 13 van de lossenlus, plus daarnaast 4 meerderingen van de laatste toer in A.1c. Dit komt precies overeen met het aantal stokjes dat je moet haken zoals beschreven onder voorpand: A.2a: 2 steken, A.2b over de volgende 60 steken en de 7 steken van A.2c.

Mia Germ 18.01.2019 - 18:28:

Zou willen vragen waarom ik mijn favorieten niet meer zien en ook niets meer erbij kan zetten , erg jammer, ga niet direct alles afdrukken , wacht tot ik een nieuw projet kan beginnen , vind niets meer terug, jammer :-)

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 11:02:

Dag Mia,

Momenteel wordt er gewerkt aan het verbeteren van het favorieten systeem. Nog even geduld :)

Cristina 27.11.2018 - 01:32:

Hola, quisiera saber si venden hilos a Argentina, gracias, saludos, Cristina

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 11:05:

Hola Cristina. En este momento no hay tiendas de Drops en Argentina. Puedes pedir los hilos en las sig tiendas: https://www.garnstudio.com/findastore.php?s=w&cid=23

Nikita Ejler 14.11.2018 - 23:50:

Hvad er forskellen på at starte på vrang og ret siden i højre og venstre skulderstykke? Samt hvilken vej skal jeg læse diagrammerne? Kan i måske give en forklaring på hvordan jeg gør?

Joerga 23.06.2018 - 23:03:

Hoe maak je een stokje om losse?

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 10:48:

Dag Joerga, Normaal haak je een stokje in de steek of losse van de volgende toer, door onder a.h.w. de haaknaald in de steek te steken. Als je een stokje om de losse maakt, steek je de haaknaald helemaal onder de losse van de vorige toer, dus niet in de steek maar om de steek.

Sarah 01.06.2018 - 22:57:

I have started this pattern. I have worked the right and left shoulder fronts but do not understand how to start the front piece. Am I attaching the chains from the left shoulder to the right shoulder? Where are these "60 stitches coming from if I only chained 13? Thank you.

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 08:44:

Dear Sarah, chains from the left and right shoulders are "joined" when working 1st row on front piece over both shoulders: you work A.2A over the first 2 sts on right shoulder, then work A.2B over the next 60 sts (= the next sts on right shoulder + the 13 chain at the end of right shoulder + the 13 chains at the beg of left shoulder + the first sts on left shoulder) and finish with A.2C over the last 7 sts on left shoulder. Happy crocheting!

Hur mycket garn går det åt om man virkar tröjan enfärgad

Leonore 13.05.2018 - 13:43:

Ik wil deze in 1 kleur haken, hoeveel garen heb ik dan nodig?

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 18:57:

Hallo Leonore, Deze vraag zal ik doorspelen aan designafdeling. Als je niet kunt wachten met beginnen: vaak kun je overgebleven garen terug brengen bij de winkel. (Vraag even binnen welke termijn) Als je dan het achterpand en een mouw haakt, kun je dit wegen en uitrekenen hoeveel je in totaal nodig hebt.
