Another odd pattern. I just finished ribbing and it is all wrong. Says to K2P2 (DoubleRib), end&begin w/K2. Seems the next row should be P2K2 but it isn't. You get a puffy "rib" as written, as well as an 8 stitch garter instead of 6. I took it all out and am going to do as I think it should but you may want to look at this.

Dear Lisa, you work the bottom edge in rib with 6 sts in garter st on each side, so that you will work from RS: K6, *K2, P2*, repeat from *-* until 8 sts remain, K2 (rib), K6 (edge). On next row from RS work the 6 sts on each side in garter st for front edges and work rib K over K and P over P (= from WS: K6, *P2,K2*, repeat from *-* and finish with P2, K6). Happy knitting!

Er det riktig at det er hvite lus på hver 4. pinne? At jeg må bryte den hvite tråden for hver runde med lus? Da tror jeg kanskje det er bedre å lage lus hver 3. pinne, eller hva har dere tenkt? Strikkehilsen fra Karen

Hej Karen, ja det kan du gøre, det kan der ikke ske noget ved. God fornøjelse!

Nina 30.06.2012 - 19:26:

Denne ser jo veldig god ut. Tror jeg skal strikke denne i lilla i steden. Men jeg kunne tenkt meg at den var enda lenger faktisk.

Eva 15.02.2010 - 14:49:

Jeg kunne godt tænke mig at strikke denne trøje i en tyndere garn, men ved ikke helt hvordan jeg så regner maske antallet ud... Nogen der kan hjælpe?

Gitte 02.08.2009 - 09:23:

Den er jeg ikke for vild med.

Inger 22.07.2009 - 16:27:

Den erikke skøn at skue

Tusen tack för hjälpen! Jag får prova med strumpstickor då och se om jag lyckas. I annat fall får det bli med vanliga stickor.

Marit Rasmussen 21.07.2009 - 19:42:

Selsagt kan du strikke ermet på annen måte. Når jeg ser oppskr. er det for få masker til å strikke på rundpinne. Du kan str. fram og tilbake på rette pinner, og legge ut i begynnelsen og slutten av hver pinne. Men da får du en søm under ermet til slutt, så jeg ville nok anbefale deg strømpepinner.

Ved ikke lige !

Emma 16.07.2009 - 11:23: www.frillythings.blo ...

Jag är nybörjare men vill så gärna göra den här! Jag ser att ärmarna ska stickas med strumpstickor. Finns det något sätt att sticka ärmarna på vanliga stickor eller rundstickor istället?
