I found an issue with crocheting the crocheted blossom square. It is not possible to get a petal when you ddc in round 2 AND round 3! In round 2, you crochet the bottom part of the flower petals. so the mentioned ddc should be dc instead (ch3, 3dc in ch-loop, 4dc in each ch-loop across). In round 3, you crochet the petal points, by crocheting ddc. Also: start of round 2 and 3 ch4 should ch3 (equals 1dc).

Dear Esther, this video below shows how to crochet the square, with ddc is here meant treble crochet. Happy crocheting!

Ich würde gerne die Blumenquadrate aus Paris-Resten, die ich noch habe, bunt machen - wieviel Wolle benötige ich für den unteren Taschenteil, der nur aus Krausrippen besteht?

Liebe Teresa, da die Tasche mit nur einer Farbe gestrickt/gehäkelt wird, haben wir leider keine Erfahrung über die Garnmenge mit unterschiedlichen Farben und leider können wir nicht jeder Anleitung nach jeder Anfrage anpassen. Gerne bekommen Sie aber Hilfe von Ihrem DROPS Laden - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
