Zou je deze trui ook met Brushed Alpaca Silk kunnen breien?

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 14:56:

Hoi Tania. Ja, dat kan, maar ik zou dan met een dubbele draad breien. En brei eerst een proeflapje om de stekenverhouding en structuur goed te hebben. Veel plezier mee!

Hallo, verstehe leider nur Bahnhof bei der Anleitung. Was bedeutet 2 Ndl Bündchen und auf der 1.Ndl von Gr. M/L: 2 M gleich verteilt abketten ???Was bedeutet das mit 2 Nadeln? Danke!

DROPS Design 22.10.2012 kl. 09:23:

Liebe Baerbel, in den alten Anleitungen ist das leider noch so übersetzt. Nadeln = Reihe.

Muchas gracias por el patron,quiero tejer algo sencillo para empezar

Tine (Admin) 23.08.2007 - 10:05:

Ja, die is hier (nog) niet te zien. Ik keek in het breiboek, en hier staat hij wel op. Ik zal een opmerking aan de designafdeling sturen om dit te wijzigen.

Ik zie een beschrijving voor een losse kraag, maar deze zie ik nergens op de tekening of op de foto.
