Flotte og deilige sommertøfler :-D, og så enkle og kjappe å strikke. Går i en fei!

Neste p fra retten strikkes slik: 1 r, deretter strikkes m 2 og 2 r sammen = 14-14-15-15 m – LES STRIKKETIPS! Strikk 3 p rett. På neste p fra retten strikkes slik: * 5-5-3-3 m r, de neste 2 m strikkes r sammen *, gjenta fra *-* totalt 2-2-3-3 ganger = 12-12-12-12 m på p. Strikk 1 p rett. Neste p strikkes m 2 og 2 rett sammen = 6-6-6-6 m. Er det mulig å få dette litt enklere forklart?

Hei Pia. Jeg kan prøve. Strikker du ex den mindste str har 27 M på pinden og strikker først 1 r, og resten af maskerne 2 og 2 ret sammen = 14 M på pinden. Strik 3 p ret og strik da: 5 r og 2 r sammen - gentag det to gange = 12 m. Strik i næste pind de 12 m 2 og 2 sammen = 6 M på pinden
