Fantastisk mønster til julepynt til juletræet med julegaver. Det er nu at webshoppen skal forberede sig på julen og julehandel. Julen kommer før vi ved det :-)

De ballen worden met 3 verschillende garen van fabel gebreid maar ik kan niet in de beschrijving zien wanneer het garen gewisseld wordt. Hoe kom ik dat te weet?

Hallo Annette, Voor dit patroon heb je maar 1 bol fabel nodig en jebreitmet 1 draad. Er zit een print in het garen waardoor de kleurovergangen ontstaan.

In de beschrijving van deze kerstbal staan alleen de hoeveelheid steken en de meerderingen, maar niet wanneer je welke kleur moet gebruiken, is dat bij te voegen?

DROPS Design 18.12.2012 kl. 12:23:

De kerstbal wordt gebreid van DROPS Fabel. Het is een meerkleurig print garen. Het kleurpatroon vormt zich dus automatisch. Kijk ook op de kleurenoverzicht van Fabel.
