Hej Jeg er ved at lave en strikke prøve på mønster 51-21, jakke med snoningsmønster. Jeg tror der er en fejl i mønster 2. Snoningen på pind nr 3 og nr 19 vender den forkerte vej. snoningen "ligge øverst" fra venstre mod højre, men for at vende rigtigt skal den "ligge øverst" fra højre mod venstre. Håber i forstår hvad jeg mener. Tak for mange spændende opskrifter. Venlig hilsen Hanne Sandvad

Hej Hanne, det ser ud som om at billedet er spejlvendt, men det er vigtigt at alle de store snoninger i M.2 skal vende samme vej. God fornøjelse!
