Jag förstår inte hur jag gör när jag ska virka ihop fyra rutor i hörnet där. Det blir inte bra. Jag har två längder som jag virkat ihop, och de blev jättfina men har problem när jag kommer till hörnet där fyra rutor virkas ihop. Kan någon hjälpa mig?

Hei! Tenkte å prøve denne. Skal det brukes dobbbelt garn (dvs to tråder)?

DROPS Design 07.09.2012 kl. 09:09:

Nej ;o)

Hei, Stemmer det at jeg teller sekd farger på bildet? I oppskriften er det fem farger og det ser ut som at det mangler en slags gråfarge? Prøver å overføre fargekombinasjonen til et annet teppe så jeg har ikke prøvd å hekle enda...

Ciao Marina, le spiegazioni ci sono anche in inglese, non solo in francese.
