Bra "amningsvärmare" i mitt favoritgarn Eskimo! =) Kanske gör jag ett försök att sticka detta förstärkningsplagg till hösten.

Beim Rückenteil: Dort steht: "Nach 17-18-19-20-21 cm, auf beiden Seiten, 2 R. re. über die äussersten 6-6-7-7-8 M. stricken". Beeinhaltet das auch die RM, oder soll ich noch dazurechnen? Und: Werden die RM eigentlich immer re gestrickt?

DROPS Design 04.12.2012 kl. 15:30:

Liebe Nicole, die Randmasche wird immer re gestrickt und die äußersten 6-6-7-7-8 M. beinhalten auch die Randmasche. Viel Spaß beim Stricken!

Hi Carmine That 1 stitch to inc at 5 cm is at the armhole side only.

Carmine 09.02.2012 - 08:10:

'Left front piece:..when piece measures 5cm inc 1 st each side'...this occurs while still increasing by twos. So in this instance should the increase be 3 on one side when you increase the one on the other?

Den vil jeg strikke.

Cassandra 10.08.2006 - 18:42:
