Ik ben aan de mouwen begonnen. De rand is ok. Nu moet ik meerderen met 2 steken en volgens het patroon verder breien. Het patroon telt 6 steken. Dan verschuift dat patroon toch. Je moet toch altijd een veelvoud van 6 steken hebben?

Wil dit breien voor 7-8 jaar. De twee soorten wol zijn niet meer verkrijgbaar en ik moet dus vervangen. Bij elk breiwerk kom ik tekort alhoewel ik altijd 1 bol extra bestel. Is het ok als ik bestel : - 1 bol drops safran rood - 3 bollen melody grijs -3 bollen naturel Bestel ik van de melody van elk een bol extra of kom ik er zo? Mvg Belinda

Dag Belinda,

Het handigst is om even te kijken wat de garenvervanger als resultaat geeft. Als je bijv. 350 gr Ardesia invult in de garenvervanger, krijg je de volgende opties: - 250g DROPS Melody (1 draad) - 250g DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk (2 draden) - 369g DROPS Sky (2 draden) - 263g DROPS Kid-Silk (3 draden)

En als je 150 gr invult, krijg je de volgende opties: - 108g DROPS Melody (1 draad) - 108g DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk (2 draden) - 158g DROPS Sky (2 draden) - 113g DROPS Kid-Silk (3 draden)

Is het zo dat je dit patroon begint met helemaal rondbreien (dus geen naden) en dat je nadien aan de achterkant verder doet en vervolgens aan de voorkant?

DROPS Design 23.06.2019 kl. 20:02:

Dag Belinda,

Je breit inderdaad eerst het lijf in de rondte. Ter hoogte van de armsgaten wordt het lijf opgesplitst in het voor- en achterpand, welke je los van elkaar heen en weer verder breit.
