Bonjour, Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de rehausse pour le dos. Les épaules ne sont pas suffisamment marquées. Au final, très chaud mais pas très agréable à porter car il ne tombe pas bien. Déçue.

Bonjour Isabelle, au moment de la publication de ce modèle, cette technique n'était pas courante, mais vous pouvez tout à fait en ajouter en vous basant sur un modèle similaire. Bon tricot!

Even een vraagje over de mouw. Moet je als je op lengte bent de middelste 8 steken afkanten of aan weerskanten 4 steken? Patroon staat een beetje raar geschreven

DROPS Design 22.10.2012 kl. 10:56:

Je moet de middelste 8 st in het midden van de ondermouw afkanten = 4 st aan beide kanten van het begin van de naald.

DROPS Design NL 22.10.2009 - 11:33:

Hallo Tea. Ja, dit klopt. Na het breien van de boord, moet u in de 3 kleine maten geen steken minderen. In de overige maten moet u minderen. U gaat naar een grotere breinaald en een andere steek. Met te veel steken zou de mouw te breed worden. Succes! Gr. Tine

Tea Van Hoeve 19.10.2009 - 18:41:

De mouwen moet je opzetten: 24 en na het boord aanpassen naar 24? bij de grotere maten zelfs verminderen??

Tröjan blev helt underbart skön och snygg...
