Ich habe eine Frage zur Nadelstärke. In der Anleitung ist 2,5 angegeben. Die Alternatingarne der Gruppe C (die Orginalgarne gibt es ja nicht mehr) werden aber mit Nadelstärke 4 gestrickt. Wie löse ich diesen Widerspruch? Ich bin Anfängerin und noch nicht geübt mit so einem Thema. Ich freue mich auf Antwort Eike

Liebe Frau Seeanner, Sie können hier einen alternativen Garn der Garngruppe C stricken, die Maschenprobe soll hier 14 M x 39 R kraus rechts = 10 x 10 cm, Nadelgröße ist nur einen Vorschlag und kann je nach jeder angepasst werden. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternative. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
