Mønsteret blir ikke likt på begge sider av stolpen. Skal det være sånn??

DROPS Design 31.08.2018 kl. 08:43:

Hei Eva. Mønsteret går opp i hele rapporter på omgangen, så på den ene siden av stolpen vil mønsteret se ut som diagrammene lest fra høyre mot vensteret, mens på den andre siden vil mønsteret se ut som diagrammene lest fra venstre mot høyre. Hadde ikke stolpen vært der ville de altså passet sammen. Du strikker ikke mønster over stolpen og de maskene som legges opp til å klippe ermer i. God fornøyelse
