Anais 03.07.2019 - 11:14:

Bonjour, Quand on est dans la partie autour du carré initial, vous dites de crocheter 14 rangs (taille S/M). Vous comptez tous les rangs le long des 2 côtés ou uniquement ceux qui ne sont pas détaillés précédemment ? (Ça crée une différence de 4 rangs.) Merci.

DROPS Design 03.07.2019 kl. 13:30:

Bonjour Anaïs, vous crochetez les 22 ms de la 1ère partie, puis 2 ms dans la suivante, et 1 ms le long du côté gauche de la 1ère partie (= à gauche, vu sur l'endroit, dans les fins de rangs), vous crochetez un total de 14 rangs, y compris les 3 premiers qui sont expliqués. Bon crochet!

Armandine 29.05.2019 - 20:47:

Que represente les etoiles et les espaces sur le rang avant le diagramme

DROPS Design 30.05.2019 kl. 18:19:

Bonjour Amandine! L'etoile signifie que le rang a ete déjà crocheté et tu dois commencer au rang suivant. Bon crochet!

Armandine 27.05.2019 - 21:03:

Je ne comprends pas comment tricoter le diagramme A;1a

DROPS Design 28.05.2019 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Amandine, commencez en bas à droite (après le rang avec des croix et des étoiles) et lisez de droite à gauche sur l'endroit et de gauche à droite sur l'envers - vous trouverez ici plus d'infos sur les diagrammes crochet. Bon crochet!

Karen 16.05.2019 - 10:37:

En el patrón en inglés hay más información de como trabajar el borde de las copas cuando se usan los diagramas, en el traducido a español le falta información. Me gustaria que me las explicaran, ya que en inglés no me quedó claro cuando y cuanto usar cada diagrama. Gracias.

DROPS Design 18.05.2019 kl. 20:26:

Hola Karen. La traducción es correcta y no falta nada de información.

Hélène 26.04.2019 - 00:47:

Bonjour, question peut-être idiote mais pour chaque cordelière, on passe une simple chaînette de ml en double, sans la coudre...? Merci

DROPS Design 26.04.2019 kl. 09:18:

Bonjour Hélène, on va fixer chacune des cordelières comme une frange: pliez la cordelière en double, passez la boucle obtenue dans l'arceau du haut des bonnets/du coin du bas des bonnets puis enfiler les 2 fils de la cordelière dans la boucle = elle est ainsi maintenue. Bonne continuation!

Lina 17.04.2019 - 19:42:

Avec le même fil, il me faut plus de rangs qu'indiqué pour obtenir 10cm. Sur la pelote de safran, il faut aussi 32 rangs.... Dois-je ajouter des rangs... Cela va peut-être perturber la suite.... ----Sachant qu'en largeur les 24 maillesdonnent bien 10 cm.

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 11:30:

Bonjour Lina, si vous avez la bonne largeur = 24 ms = 10 cm, essayez de serrer un peu plus vos mailles serrées en hauteur pour que vous obteniez le bon échantillon (les 32 rangs indiquées sur l'étiquette se réfèrent au tricot, pas au crochet). Bon crochet!

Lina 17.04.2019 - 16:59:

Ensuite après le carré fini, je ne comprends pas bien: après les 3 ml, on descend le long du carré ? Puis on remontera....? On travaille sur 2 côtés du carré, c'est cela ? Merci

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 11:27:

Bonjour Lina, quand le carré est terminé (= 21-29 rangs cf taille), on va crocheter le long de 2 des côtés du carré (= 45-61 ms), et continuer ensuite la partie HAUT DU CARRÉ sur ces mailles en augmentant au milieu comme indiqué. On termine ensuite par A.1. Et on crochète les 2 bonnets ensemble avec la BORDURE. Bon crochet!

Lina 17.04.2019 - 16:26:

Bonjour, lorsqu'on tourne pour les ml serrées, dire que la ml en l'air de début ne fait pas office de 1ere ml signifie que l'on pique au pied de cette ml en l'air...? Merci.

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 11:22:

Bonjour Lina, quand on tourne, on crochète 1 maille en l'air, puis, au début du rang suivant, on crochète la 1ère maille serrée dans la première maille serrée du rang (= la dernière maille serrée crochetée à la fin du rang précédent). Cette maille en l'air ne compte pas dans le nombre de mailles. Bon crochet!

Jessica 16.03.2019 - 18:21:

Bonjour, je souhaiterais crocheter ce modèle de bikini avec le fil safran comme indiqué, mais je souhaiterais savoir si abec le fil safran on peut se baigner? Le maillot ne devient il pas trpp lourd ou gorgé d'eau? Merci d'avance pour votre reponse.

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 08:57:

Bonjour Jessica, ce type de maillots de bain au crochet est conçu pour la plage/les séances de bronzage, pas pour se baigner. Bon crochet!

Deborah 22.08.2018 - 15:32:

Die nächste Reihe wie folgt häkeln (= Rück-Reihe): A.1a, A.1b insgesamt 8-9-11-12 x in der Breite, A.1c und A.1d. A.1 in der Höhe zu Ende häkeln. Den Faden abschneiden und vernähen. Diesen Teil der Anleitung verstehe ich nicht. Was muss ich da genau machen?

DROPS Design 22.08.2018 kl. 23:29:

Sie häkeln die Diagramme in der angegebenen Reihenfolge, ab der Rück-Reihe. D.h. die Rück-Reihe beginnt mit A.1a, dann häkeln Sie A.1b so oft in der Reihe, wie es Ihrer Größe entspricht, zuletzt häkeln Sie A.1c 1x und A.1d 1 x in der Reihe. Das ganze Diagramm A.1a bis A.1d ist A.1. Wenn Sie die Diagramme zu Ende gehäkelt haben, d.h. wenn Sie beide Reihen von A.1a bis A.1d gehäkelt haben (= Rück-Reihe und Hin-Reihe), wird die Arbeit beendet.
