This video says for a UK treble in the round. This is not showing the usual UK treble. Is the a ‘treble in the round’ a different stitch to a treble?

Dear Sian, I might misunderstand your question, but this video is showing how to work treble crochets (UK) in the round, ie how to start the round (= 3 chains) and how to join the rounds (1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain at the beg of the round). Hope this can help. Happy crocheting!

Und wer den hässlichen, sichtbaren Rundenübergang verhindern will, der wende sich an die bekannten Videoportale. Dort findet man ebenso einfache, klare Videos für unsichtbare Rundenübergänge.

Hello I'm following this pattern and when it says treble into chain space you do mean space and not the actual chain itself. As I asked someone else and they thought by looking at the picture it looked like your crocheting into the chain. I have worked with Patterns like this and chain space means chain space i think it's right but thought I would enquire. Kind regards Claire

Dear Mrs White, as explained it looks like you are right, when you work in the chain space, you work around the chain(s) that make(s) the chain-space, and not in the chain itself. Do not hesitate to ask your question on the pattern you are working on so that we can check better. Happy crocheting!

Ik haak precies zoals u het in dit filmpje laat zien maar bij mij zie je duidelijk de overgang naar de volgende toer omdat het niet recht omhoog gaat maar het scheef trekt. Wat doe ik verkeerd, ik heb al geprobeerd de eerste 3 lossen die het 1e stokje vervangt losser of strakker te haken maar het resultaat blijft dat het duidelijk naar een kant trekt.

Dag Ria,

Als je op deze manier in de rondte breit, dan verschuift het inderdaad geleidelijk aan. De stokjes zitten op deze manier nooit recht boven elkaar. Als je dat niet wilt kun je telkens na het sluiten van de toer het werk keren en terug haken.

Hi Kim. Usually you can save your pattern as pdf via the print function - and then save it on tablet (I do that and it works great :-))

Håller med om att det går lite för fort i videon för nybörjare. Jag börjar på nytt varv med att göra en stolpe med 3 luftmaskor men det jag undrar är i vilken maska jag gör den andra stolpen. Är det i samma som den första med luftmaskorna eller i den maskan som kommer efter?

Jättebra video, men det går alldeles för snabbt. Som nybörjare vill jag hinna se exakt i vilken maska man ska börja och sluta, men det hinner jag knappt uppfatta. Stickvideorna går mycket långsammare, vilket jag uppskattar.
