Hallo, Hoeveel garen heb ik nodig als ik de kleinste maat zonder bloem wil halen? Alvast bedankt!

DROPS Design 28.11.2016 kl. 11:35:

Hoi Mara. Ik zou vanuit gaan van wat er staat aan het begin van het patroon: Materialen: DROPS Alpaca van Garnstudio 150-150-150-200-200 g nr. 7120, zachtgroen. Het bloemetje is gehaakt van restjes - en niet van een complete bol.

En kantmaska är den första maskan på varje sida och den stickas i regel som en rät masta alla varv. Då blir kanten stadigare. Hälsningar Elisabeth

Vad är en kantmaska? Hur stickar man den? Tack på förhand /Fia
