Hoi Anja. Ik heb een tijdje overlegt met Design en wij kunnen op dit moment niet dit foutje herstellen op deze oude teltekening (hij is niet digitaal). U kunt eventueel zelf het patroon aanpassen zodat het klopt. Bedankt en het staat in ieder geval bij ons genoteerd. Gr. Tine

Er staat een fout in de teltekening. Bij M4, 3e regel, staan er links vanaf de zijkant 2 steken blauw, 1 steek wit en dan 1 steek blauw, maar dat moeten weer 2 steken blauw komen.
