Het telpatroon is niet zichtbaar en kan niet geprint worden. Heeft u een oplossing? Zr. Elvira Maria

Hoi Elvira. Druk op refresh (F5), dan zou het telpatroon zichtbaar zijn :)

I am trying to make this sweater for my daughter. WHAT does M.1 mean? Cannot find it in the dictionary

The M.1 is the name of the chart printed below the text next to the measure chart. The chart shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the RS side.
