Hei. Hvordan strikker man "hullene"/ det som ikke har noe symbol i diagrammet? Som f.eks. i første rekke på A.1.

DROPS Design 30.09.2013 kl. 21:14:

Hej Tiril. De masker findes slet ikke. Du strikker altsaa kun 3 r. Först i pind 3 faar du 1 maske mere ved kastet du laver midt i kablet.

I'm following the Brit English pattern and have a question regarding the first time you knit the cables (A1 section, the ones with YO). They don't follow the same front/behind pattern as the same cables in section A2, and looking at the picture it seems they should. Maybe the diagram directions for these YO cables are wrong? Or maybe I'm the one who is wrong ;-)
