Hvis man vil lave sjalet i en slut-bredde på 250 cm. Hvor mange nøgler vil I så anbefale, at der købes?

DROPS Design 12.02.2019 kl. 09:45:

Hej Tina, Det er jo de lange omgange du får flere af, så du skal nok bruge omkring 3 nøgler mere. God fornøjelse!

I really love this shawl - so beautiful colour....Hope I will be able to make it some day..

Norunn 15.07.2013 - 00:20:

Holder på med dette nå, og jeg tror at sjalet på bildet er heklet med noe annet enn "Eskimo".. Det blir nok fint, men tipper at det ikke er ull som er brukt på sjalet som er avbildet..

DROPS Design 15.07.2013 kl. 20:33:

Hej Norunn. Jeg har spurgt paa Design og det er Eskimo denne er lavet i. Der er ikke aendret paa opskriften.

Jag hade inte virkat på säkert 10 år när en kompis visade mig det här mönstret. Det gick jättebra och blev kanonfint! Det växer snabbt och har man väl lärt sig kärleksknuten så flyter det på hur snabbt som helst.
