Divide the leg on the inside when it measures 22-26-29-31 (39-45-50-56) cm – divide the piece between the 2 P sts (the separation = split to make it easier to put the sts on the circular needle afterwards) and finish the piece back and forth on needle.

Hej, når du har sat begge ben ind på samme rundpind og strikker rundt om ryg og mave, tager du ud på hver side af de 2 midterste masker bagpå og du tager ind på hver side af de 2 midterste masker foran (ifølge opskriften)! God fornøjelse!

Start out by knitting the leg in the round. Divide the leg on the inside when it measures 22-26-29-31 (39-45-50-56) cm – divide the piece between the 2 P sts (the separation = split to make it easier to put the sts on the circular needle afterwards) and finish the piece back and forth on needle. At the same time inc 1 st each side towards for seam
