Det er svært at se hvordan halsen er på trøjen. Har modellen en sort rullekravesweater på indenunder trøjen?

Hei Marianne. Ja, her har modellen en høyhalset sort genser under strikke genseren. Om du ser på målskissen (helt nederst) ser du sånn ca hvordan halsen vil bli på denen modellen. God Fornøyelse!

Hej Jeg er igang med at strikke 15-23 herre str 298 masker - mønstret går over 32 masker jeg kan ikke få det til at passe hvad gør jeg galt Venlig hilsen Bente Mikkelborg

Hej Bente. Du har forstk og rygstk: 149 m paa hver side. Du skal begynde ved pilen for din str. Dvs, du starter med at strikke de sidste 10 m af diagrammet (139 m tilbage til siden), saa strikker du 4 hele gentagelser af diagrammet (32 m per gang) = 10+128 m strikket og du har 11 m tilbage til siden. Du strikker nu de förste 11 m af diagrammet igen = dit mönster er centreret paa forstk. Gentag paa rygstk.
