FOIRATIER 12.09.2018 - 21:51:

Bonsoir. Pour la combinaison après avoir fait les 8 augmentations et les 8 diminutions on a 162 mailles. Ensuite il faut diminuer d’1 maille de part et d’autre du marqueur ce qui nous donne 160 mailles. Ensuite, à 25 cm il faut réaliser 5 diminutions de chaque côté des devants soit 10 mailles de moins. Le texte dit qu’il reste à ce moment-là 152 mailles mais s’il reste 160 mailles moins dix cela donne 150 mailles et non 152, sauf si je fais une erreur de calcul.

Bonjour Mme Foiratier, la phrase sur les diminutions explique juste comment diminuer ces mailles sur le dos et les devants, je l'ai décalée avant le nombre total de mailles pour qu'elle ne crée pas un problème de compréhension. Bon tricot!

Mikähän kokoinen pyöröpuikko tulee kysymykseen kun noin ohuella langalla vain 80 silmukkaa?

DROPS Design 23.01.2014 kl. 14:24:

Lahkeet voidaan neuloa 40 cm:n pituisella pyöröpuikolla.
