INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st at the end of every row by working 2 sts in the last st.

To get an accurate measurement place the piece on a table. Make sure that the corner is approx. 90 degrees and measure from the tip and towards the circular needle.

KNITTING TIP 1 SQUARE:
To make the most out of 1 ball the Verdi ball should be weighed first. Divide this number by 2 = approx. 175 g. Inc 1 st on every row until approx. 175 g remain or a little more. Now start to dec.

Hvordan kommer tæppet unique til at måle 100x150 når hver forkant måler 35 x35 og man skal strikke 6 firkanter ? Iflg opskriften

DROPS Design 09.09.2014 kl. 13:47:

Hej Gitte. Du måler de 35 cm over midten. Målene på firkanten bliver 50x50 cm (= 70 cm fra hjørne til hjørne). God fornøjelse!

Est-ce un double face ou s'agit-il de 2 modèles sur le même thème ?

On a vraiment envie de s'envelopper de ce grand châle pour affronter le froid ou pour "buller" devant un bon film !
