Bonjour Filliat, les indications des manches sont justes, les augmentations sont toutes terminées quand on rabat les premières mailles pour l'arrondi de la manche.

FILLIAT 27.11.2011 - 17:32:

Il doit y avoir une erreur dans les explications des manches : si je suis, il faut que je commence à diminuer alors que je n'ai pas fini d'augmenter!!!
