I denne oppskriften brukes det 4 nøster av Viennea, tilsvarer det 4 nøster Melody?

Hej. Det är 95 m på 50 g Vienna, och 140 m på 50 g Melody så du behöver alltså inte lika många nystan av Melody som av Vienna. Här kan du läsa om hur du gör för att byta ut ett garn mot ett annat. Information om garn som utgått hittar du här. Lycka till!

Niet op een rond brei naald beschrijving maar gewone brei pennen beschrijving is die er ook?

Garnet finns ju kvar, men färgerna har lugnat sig sen förra seklet!

Kristine 23.03.2013 - 16:58:

Kjempekul oppskrift. Men hvorfor ligger det oppskrifter ute som dere ikke selger garn til? Frustrerende og irriterende

DROPS Design 28.03.2013 kl. 12:10:

Dette er gamle opskrifter, hvor vi ikke laengere saelger garnet til. Vi tilbyder alternativer som du kan bruge. Vi synes det er vigtigt at I kan göre gratis brug af vores mönstre gennem 30 aar - det kan dog haende at der skal finde et alternativ - men der er jo masser af muligheder ;o)
