L.S, Mijn mouwen hebben een lengte van 55 cm nodig, [ brei maat L ], Moet ik op dezelfde manier de verdeling tussen de ribbels en tricot verder doorzetten? Of hebben jullie een andere oplossing? Met vriendelijke groeten, Mirjam Hensel

Hoi Mirjam. Ja, je moet het patroon doorzetten op de pas (zie foto).

Randmönster 1 ger ett helt annan resultat är koftans ränder på bilden? Där är ränderna rät och avig uppöver hela koftan. Enligt beskrivningen blir dom aviga och räta ränderna åt andra hållet??

Äntligen en kofta jag vill göra till mig själv!

El que más me gusta de esta colección

P.s. LOVE the neckline. So very flattering on many body types.

A classic, stylish cardi, with which one could wear with a skirt or slacks for work, or with jeans to play. A "definite" on the "TO KNIT" list! :)

Flot halsudskæring.
