I ankar-/rodermönstret: hur undviker de att den svarta tråden syns i det vita? Skall man låta bli att twista trådarna, och bara låta den svarta följa med "fritt" i 10 cm, eller finns det någon annan teknik? Tacksam för svar, med vänlig hälsning Isak Moen.

Hej Isak. Jeg ville strikke fair-isle hvor du drejer traadene om hinanden. Löse traader er ikke smart - de kan haenge fast. Min erfaring er at det altid laegger sig paent naar den er vasket 1e gang. En anden lösning er at brodere mönstret paa i stedet for at strikke det.
