It says for the thumb: Put the 7 thumb sts back on needle and knit 2 rows garter sts, at the same time inc 2 sts = 8 (9) sts ....So wouldn't that be 9 sts or 10???

Ik zou graag deze wanten breien, maar ik snap een paar dingen niet: 1)hoe maak je een omslag? 2)hoe brei je de omslag in de achterkant? 3)hoe moet je aan elke zijde van de merkdraad meerderen? 4)wat is een merkdraad? dit zijn misschien heel domme vragen, maar ik snap er niet veel van...

Voor al je vragen kan je kijken bij de instructievideo's in de index. Wij hebben hier video's van hoe je een omslag moet breien, markeerdraden, meerderingen en zo voort. Ben je helemaal beginnende breister kan je misschien ook een cursus nemen .

Vi har dessverre ikke mulighet å skirve om oppsk. men du kan sikker få hjelp i strikkebutikken.

Hvis jeg skal strikke disse i herrestørrelse - ca hvor mange cm skal votten og tommelen være?

Enkle og skjønne

dejlige luffer

Mahlin 01.08.2006 - 22:10:

De ser lite klumpiga, men ändå rätt coola, och framför allt enkla ut, kanske t.o.m. en nybörjare kan klara av dem!?

helena 01.08.2006 - 10:10:

tuffa och ser jättesköna ut.
