Bonjour Je souhaite faire les gants. Mais j'ai une petite question, comment savoir quelle taille faire? Avez vous un guide pour savoir les mesures à prendre pour déterminer la taille nécessaire? Cordialement Estelle

Bonjour Estelle, avec la tension indiquée de 26 m = 10 cm, la taille S/M correspond à env. 18.5 cm et la taille L/XL à env. 21 cm de largeur de main (au niveau des articulations de la main, sans le pouce). Bon tricot!
