Liebe Frau Hopfgartner, dieses Modell ist eine "alte" DROPS Design Anleitung, eine der ersten, die schon von viele Jahren gemacht wurde. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anette Aaslund 12.07.2016 - 22:46:

Hei, Hvor mye garn trengs det til dette? Hvor mye i hver farge? Kan jeg strikke i Drops Bomull-Lin som er i samme garngruppe?

DROPS Design 13.07.2016 kl. 15:38:

Hoi Anette. DROPS Verbasco: Vekt/lengde: 50 g = ca. 85 m. Du kan erstatte med Bomull-Lin (se garnalternativer) og laes her hvordan du beregner garnmaengden

Hvor mye garn trengs det til denne oppskriften? Og hvor mye av hver farge? Kan jeg strikke denne i Drops Alpaca silk,som er i samme garngruppe?
