Hoi. ik zou hier graag een kleine rits in zetten van zo'n 10 cm. wat is de handigste manier om dat te doen? laatste stukje steken voor rits af kanten en na breien boord nog een keer een rij langs af gekante steken breien? hoor graag een tip!

Dag Manon,

Je zou inderdaad een bies kunnen maken midden voor, waar je de rits tegenaan kunt naaien.

In der Anleitung wird nach dem Bündchen eine Reihe rechts gestrickt. Auf dem Foto scheint mir aber eine Linksreihe gestrickt worden zu sein, da es ja auf der Rundnadel gestrickt wurde. Was ist jetzt richtig?

DROPS Design 24.01.2016 kl. 20:30:

Sie stricken nach dem Bündchen 1 Rd rechts und nehmen dabei wie beschrieben M ab, dann stricken Sie 1 Rd links, so steht es in der Anleitung.

Hallo, ich stricke diesen Pullover für einen schlanken, aber breiten 2-m-Mann. In der Weite stimmt die Größe XXL. Aber wie muss ich die Verhältnisse ändern bei den Armkugeln? Gibt es was zum Umrechnen?
