Hallo, reicht die angegebene Menge Garn (300 g) nur für 1 doppelten Topflappen? Oder bekommt man 2 doppelte Topflappen = 1 Paar mit den 300 g? Vielen Dank im Voraus und viele Grüße

Liebe Angelika, die Garnangaben sind für 2 identischen Topflappen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Ich habe die Topflappen nachgearbeitet. Sie sehen toll aus. Ein Geschenk für meine Kinder. Schade, daß man kein Foto hoch laden kann. Danke für das Muster und die schöne Wolle.

My grandmother made me some of these in the 70's when I got married. She also made half-circle ones. I always loved them and even more since grandma is passed on. I still have them.
