Hallo, Ich habe eine Frage zu der Strickschrift. Ist es richtig das in der Strickschrift nur die Hinrunden zu sehen sind? Die Rückrunden werden so gestrickt wie sie erscheinen oder? Danke! LG Feige

DROPS Design 01.03.2018 kl. 11:40:

Liebe Frau Feige, die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen/Runden wie sie von der Vorderseite erscheinen, dh 1 Kästchen = 1 M x 1 R. Lesen Sie die Hinreihen von rechts nach links und die Rückreihen von links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo Kann es sein das in der Reihe mit den Lochmuster da wo die zwei Maschen zusammengestrickt werden müssen noch ein Umschlag hin gehört. Mir fehlt doch sonst immer eine Masche und ein Loch gibt es auch nicht. Danke! LG Feige

Liebe Frau Feige, es stimmt, es müstte: "2 M re zs, 1 Umschlag" sein, danke für den Hinweis, die Anleitung wird korrigiert, . Viel Spaß beim stricken!
