Zoals hieronder al twee jaar geleden aangegeven is het materiaal niet voldoende. Nu maar hopen dat er nog wol in hetzelfde kleurnummer te krijgen is. Plus verzendkosten, vrees ik. Gemiste kans!

Destijds heeft ons Design Team het patroon bekeken en geconcludeerd dat er geen aanpassingen nodig waren. Er kan ook andere redenen zijn waarom je tekort bent gekomen. Wij zullen het opnieuw noteren en doorgeven aan ons Design Team.

Bedankt voor het bericht, wij geven het door aan Design en zij controleren of een aanpassing nodig is. Groeten Angelique

Het patroon geeft te weinig materiaal aan. Van Eskimo kwam ik 100 gram tekort. De stekenverhouding klopte precies met het patroon, dus daar ligt het niet aan. Materiaal puddel was net krap aan, zou ook wel een bol( 50 gr) extra mogen. Groet Mieke Dijkstra

Auch bei dieser Anleitung ist zu wenig Material angegeben. Von der Wolle beige habe ich für die angegebenen Maße 350 g benötigt und von Pudel hat mich 50 g gerade zum Umhäkeln gereicht. Ich konnte keinen Faden mehr durchziehen. Was habe ich falsch gemacht, dass ich mehr Material verbraucht habe?

Interesting part of the set. I'd probably add a bone closure for security.
