Bonjour Mme Hamidi, Vous trouverez ici les informations nécessaires pour adapter un modèle sur aiguilles droites au lieu d'aiguille circulaire. Bon tricot!

Kunnen jullie ook het patroontje van deze herenvestje via een video laten zien hoe het motief gebreid moet worden. Op de foto komt het motief voor mij zeer onduidelijk over

Hoi. Ik zal vragen of wij een grotere foto van het telpatroon hebben. Daarbij ook of er een video gemaakt kan worden.
