Ska man blocka denna efteråt?

Hej Josefin. Ja, det ville jeg göre. Jeg synes man faar det paeneste resultat hvis du blokker sjaler naar de er faerdige.

Det känns som om det är något tokigt med mönsterdiagrammen! Om man tittar på bilden så är "bladen" i mönstret vända åt ett annat håll än vad som visas på bilden. Som det är nu blir sjalen inte spetsig utan bred!

DROPS Design 25.11.2014 kl. 12:31:

Hej kristina, Ja men i början skall sjalen bli bred i och med att du i nacken och stickar nedöver. Lycka till !
