Hi, This May be a silly question but I do t know so, I’m asking. I love this pattern except for the bobbles. Could simply substitute 1 or 2 treble Crochet’s in their place? Thank you.

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:35:

Dear Angel, feel free to not crochet the bobbles, a good idea would be to make a swatch and try different techniques to substitute them so that you can choose the one you rather. Happy crocheting!

Diana 10.06.2019 - 12:18:

Hallo, ich finde A1 nicht.

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 11:51:

Liebe Diana, A.1 ist ein ganz kleines Diagram, das finden Sie neben der Maßskizze = 1 Masche und 6 Reihen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Joy 31.05.2019 - 22:47:

Hi. I don't get how to make bobble in this pattern. If I make 1 slip stitch around chain space and after that 4 double trebles (5 loops on a hook) how can I make a slip stitch after that? I don't have any loop to pull it through, only not finished double trebles. Can you please help me?:)

DROPS Design 04.06.2019 kl. 09:07:

Dear Joy, you will here crochet several stitches together in the same ch-space: (1 loop on the hook), insert the crochet in the chain-space, get the yarn (= 1 loop on the hook), work the next 4 double treble (= 4 loops on the hook), insert the crochet hook in the chain space and get the yarn (= 1 loop on the hook), now make a yarn over and pull through all the 7 loops on the hook. Happy crocheting!

Ik mis een telpatroon:A1. Dit is alleen over de eerste drie steken, ik begrijp het niet. Graag antwoord!

DROPS Design 23.05.2019 kl. 21:36:

Dag Richtje,

A.1 staat naast de schematekening met de maten. Als er staat 'Haak A.1 over de eerste 3 steken' dan haak je dus 3 stokjes :)
