Mit slips vender kanterne ind på den lange led, så det bliver meget smalt. Hvordan får jeg rettet det ud? Med venlig hilsen Tina

Hej Tina, du kan evt dampe det let. Læg gerne et fugtigt klæde imellem og prøv dig frem så du ikke svider slipsen :)

Something is wrong with your name it section. All I did was enter my suggestion "My Nation's Tie and Ribbon" and the response was I was a spammer or a robot because I'd made too many entries ???

Goedendag, Wat wordt er bedoeld in dit patroon bij naald 8 en 20 met 20stk recht en keer het werk? Moet ik de gehele naald recht breien? wat betekent die 20?

DROPS Design 13.05.2014 kl. 16:07:

Hoi Amanda. Je breit verkorte toeren. Dat betekent dat je in nld 8 en 20 alleen over de eerste 20 st breit, keert en breit terug. Kijk ook hier:

Kleiner Rechtschreibfehler: "TIPP ZUM AUFNEHEM" da müsste stehen: "TIPP ZUM AUFNEHMEN"

Kleiner Rechtschreibfehler :) "TIPP ZUM ABNEHMEN: Die R. bei denen abgenommen wird werden wie folgt gestrickt: 1 rett," da muss stehen: 1 re
