Tip! Zelf heb ik het tasje gemaakt maar nadat het gewassen en eenmaal droog was ben ik met een soort hondenborstel, met allemaal fijne metalen pinnetjes, er zachtjes over geborsteld waardoor je een heel pluizig uiterlijk krijgt. Het was een heel geslaagd cadeautje! Een kaardborstel, die je gebruikt om schapenwol schoon te borstelen, gaat ook heel goed.

Denne ble kjempeflott! Selv min kjære likte denne, og han er ikke alltid like begeistret for slike strikketing. Men jeg måtte kjøpe et nøste ekstra av fargen oliven, men jeg hadde igjen nok av andre farger så jeg kunne jo ha byttet litt på stripene.

Det som står i oppskriften er riktig. Når arbeidet måler 10 cm kan du sette 1 merketråd i hver side, og felle 2m ved hver av merketrådene. Dette gjøres videre på hver 9. cm totalt 5 ganger. (Det felles da når arbeidet måler 10cm, 19cm, 28cm, 37cm og 46cm).

Hei. Skal jeg felle 2m i hver side hver 9cm totalt, hver gang arbeidet måler 10 cm? dette skal gjøres fem ganger oppigjennom arbeidet? skal det da bli 80 m totalt i hele vesken som er igjen? Er ganske ny i strikkefaget, og er ikke så god på å lese oppskrifer ennå. takknemlig for svar!
