Bonjour, j'ai besoin d'aide pour l'échantillon de ce modèle: il est dit de faire 3.5 mailles sur 7 ramgs. Que signifie 3 mailles et demi? Je commence à 3 mailles et arrive à 5, avec les jetés et les tombés, ou autre chose? Et aussi, dois je faire un rang par couleur, ou tricoter les 7 rangs avec 8 fils (8 couleurs différentes)...? Je débute et ne sais pas trop comment faire pour cet échantillon! Merci d'avance!

Bonjour Mme Delacourtie, l'échantillon est de 3.5 m x 7 rangs = 10 cm, soit 6 m = 20 cm de large (il faut 3 m et demi pour avoir 10 cm). Vous montez 3 m et tricotez en point fantaisie avec des augm. (= 2 rangs) et augm. ainsi 2 m tous les 2 rangs. Vous tricotez tout du long avec 2 fils: 1 Vienna + 1 Highlander en suivant les rayures. Bon tricot!
