Bonjour Lilyrose, vous pouvez volontiers poser votre question ici ou vous adresser à votre magasin DROPS ou au forum DROPS pour toute aide complémentaire. Bon tricot!

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce modèle multicolore et gai, même si j'ai du le recommencer car beaucoup trop court en taille S/M malgré un bon échantillon(et pourtant je suis petite !).

Nej du strikker rundt på rundpinden. For at få retstrik (retriller) på rundpind må du strikke hver 2.p vrang. Havde du strikket frem og tilbage så strikker man ret på hver p for at få retstrik.

Dorthe Høg Geday 04.02.2009 - 21:24:

Kan det være rigtig at denne skal strikkes "frem og tilbage" på rundpind? Det ser sådan ud, når der er står at retstrik er ret på 1. pind og vrang på 2. pind. ???
