Hej. Jeg søger opskrift på trøjer til mine børnebørn på 2 år. Har kig på denne og baby 20-21, det er nogenlunde samme tykkelse garn og begge helt rundt. Jeg forstår ikke helt, den store forskel på maskeantallet 120 / 168? Håber at høre fra jer Med venlig hilsen Lis

DROPS Design 10.04.2019 kl. 15:06:

Hei Lis. Disse 2 modellene har ulik fasong: 20-21 har A-fasong og er en del videre nederst, mens 13-11 er like vid hele veien. Om du ser på målskissen nederst vil du se at genserne måler ca det samme i brystvidden. Strikkefastheten er også noe forskellig, så selvom det er samme garn vil du ha ulikt maskeantall for å oppnå de samme målene (siden det brukes forskjellig pinnestørrelse). God fornøyelse.

There's an error on the Portuguese version for size 12/18 months, it reads cast on 101 instead of 104

Impossible de vous envoyer ma question toujours refusée

Pia Wettergren 03.01.2019 - 22:11:

Er rettelser påført opskriften, da jeg skal strikke den samme størrelse

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 15:20:

Hei Pia. Hvis du mener de 10 maskene som skal felles (fra kommentaren fra 2014) så er dette rettet: "Når arb måler 10-11-12 (13-14) cm felles det 9-10-10 (11-12) m jevnt fordelt". God fornøyelse

Idalia 16.07.2014 - 17:34:
