Süße Tasche, die ich schnell mal als Wichtelgeschenk gestrickt habe. Vielen Dank für die Anleitung!

Hallo, ik ben nog maar net begonnen met breien, maar wil dit toch graag proberen. Ik heb dat zigzag patroon A1 eens geprobeerd op een proeflapje maar ik krijg inderdaad ook een gaatje. Aangezien ik niet snap waarom er een gaatje moet zijn wil ik net als Jennifer dit weglaten. Enkel begrijp ik jullie antwoord hierop niet, zou je in beginnerstaal willen uitleggen hoe ik dat gaatje kan vermijden?? Alvast bedankt! Melissa

Hoi Melissa. Wil je het gaatje niet hebben, dan kan je de omslag in de volgende nld achterin breien om het gaatje te sluiten. Kijk hier hoe je dat moet breien - in deze video zie je beide mogelijkheden (de omslag recht breien en achterin recht breien):

When I do zigzag patternA1 and then knit all stitches next row there is a small whole where the yarn over was in previous row is that correct or do I do something different?? Thank you

Dear Jennifer, if you don't like this small hole, it can be a good idea to work the yo into back of loop on next round. Happy knitting!
