Chain stitch (ch)

Keywords: cord, loop,

Hold the slip knot between your thumb and middle finger on the left hand. Move the hook under and over the yarn, with the yarn held in the hook. Pull the hook and the yarn back through the slip knot to form the first chain stitch. Keep going until you have the number of chains stated in your pattern. When counting stitches, do not count the stitch on the hook.

Hola Silvia, nosotros no tenemos patrones que requieran esta técnica, por lo que no disponemos de ningún tutorial para aprenderla.

I need explanation on bind off for armholes in pattern Moonlight Mist pattern 99-3

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Mrs Hull, to shape the armholes in this jacket, you will crochet some chain stitches and skip stitches from previous round, and just continue as before, this will create a hole that will be the armhole. You will crochet later the sleeve top down working first round in the skipped stitches on circle + the chain stitches worked over the skipped stitches; Happy crocheting!

Hi there, I would like explanation on the straps section, please kindly explain to me in this slipper Drops Design pattern, you say 2 threads, does that mean I have to crochet with two threads together in order to create the straps, cause I am confused.

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Mrs Lavoie, could you please ask your question on the pattern you are working on? I would like to be sure the answer will be appropriate. Thanks for your comprehension. Happy crocheting!

How many chains do you do for each size slipper? Or what do you use to start?

12.11.2015 - 23:41

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Mrs Hildebrand, the video shows how to crochet a chain and a fundation chain, you will have to refer to the pattern you are working on for the number of sts to crochet, since this will vary with the yarn, the tension, the pattern etc.. Happy crocheting!

Hope that you read this, to Petra: I have found a blog, in swedish, that shows the first step, the loop if you still don't know by now search for amigurumipyssel. You'll find it at "Virkskolan - Hur du virkar en luftmaska" Or for others wondering the same thing, enjoy! :)

Hvorfor viser ingen videoer hvordan man begynner, når man sitter med tråd i den ene handa og nålen i den andre..?? Tydeligvis ikke beregnet på helt nybegynnere..og når man er venstrehendt i tillegg så blir det jo helt håpløst..

Why the video's sound is mute? I could not understand how to do the steps...

Drops Design answered:

We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people speaking endless of different languages and many do not understand Norwegian. So since there is not a given language for us to use, we instead have written instructions to accompany the video, and then there is no sound to disturb while watching.
