Hallo, Ik ben al 3x opnieuw begonnen met dit patroon maar wat ik niet snap is: moet ik na iedere pen 1 pen recht doen zoals op de tekening is aangegeven en moet ik als ik 6 lussen gemaakt heb de volgende pen die 6x 2 samenbreien.

Hoi Matty. Je breit de omslagen in elke nld gewoon recht. Er is een rechtsteken tussen elke omslag op de tekening

Im vorigen Jahr habe ich mir einen Rock gestrickt. Ich liebe ihn und trage ihn sehr oft. Dieser Rock ist sehr feminin. Er gefällt mir.

Bonjour, Dommage qu'il n'y ai pas le petit gilet assorti...

Gabriela 12.01.2014 - 20:30:

Marianne CONRAD 28.12.2013 - 18:31:
