Gr. XXL m. E.: 48M M1+2M kraus = 50 M Anschlag. Zun. für Armauschnitt insg. 10x NICHT 9x! 50M Anschl. + 20 M Zun. = 70 M + 28 M Zun. = 98 M Ich persönlich rechne noch 2 Randmaschen (1li+1re) dazu.

M. Pöttgen 21.05.2018 - 10:00:

Hallo, die angegebenen Anschlagmaschen für Gr. XXL kann nicht stimmen. Das müssten 50 M sein (48 M M1 + 2 M kraus = 50 M).

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 09:08:

Liebe Frau Pöttgen, Unser Design Team wird die Anleitung nochmal prüfen. Wahrscheinlich sollte M.1 dann über 52 M gestrickt werden. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Britt-Marie Daag 30.07.2012 - 10:25:

Jag stickar topp i muskat 0-425 och har lagt upp 54 m. Ska sticka M.1 över de första 48 m och avsluta med 2 r m. Hur stickar jag de övriga? Om jag stickar de räta avslutar jag ju med fler än 2 räta m
