Rapidement réalisé et super sympa. Personnellement je ne crochette pas et j'ai tout fait avec des aiguilles normales 3 et 3.5. Ravie du rendu ! Merci pour ces explications !

Jutte 23.09.2013 - 21:37:

En dat geldt ook voor de ogen..

Jutte 23.09.2013 - 21:30:

Wat een leuke muts! Volgens mij staat er wel een foutje in het patroon: de neus moet met vasten en niet met stokjes gehaakt worden.

Hoi Jutte. Je hebt gelijk. Ik heb het patroon aangepast. Bedankt voor het melden.
