You need to make sure you have the same gauge to get the right size. If you have less sts / thinner yarn you will get a smaller bag.

Om jag börjar med 1 r, 1 av osv så slutar ju varvet med en avig då maskantalet är 56(jämnt antal).Nästa maska är över första maskan på varvet innan som då var en rät o behöver en avig över sig för att bli mossstick. Alltså måste man göra 2 aviga i rad(sista på varv1 o första på varv2)Blir inte snyggt. Har man ojämt antal slipper man problemet. Detta blir bara vid användning av rundsticka, inte vid vanliga, då man vänder på sticket. Eller tänker jag fel?

Hvorfor må du ha ujevnt masketall? Du setter bare et merke etter den 56m, og da bare fortsetter du med 1 r og 1 vr. omgangen igjennom.

Får inte ihop mosstickning på rundsticka.... Har 56 maskor enligt mönster o behöver ojämt antal för mosstickning på rundstickor....eller?
