Jag skulle vilja göra denna för en vuxen! Kan man få mått till det?

Ráda bych vám napsala svoji zkušenost, protože se to stane i Vám. Možná je to tím, že poměrně volně háčkuji, ale červená barva mi nestačila (2 klubíčka). Musela jsem dokupovat. Jinak je čepička moc hezká a snadná.

100g en rouge c'est trop peu: je viens de faire ce modèle pour 3/4 ans et j'ai failli de manquer du fil. Il a fallu raccourcir le bonnet et ajouter quelques rangés en noir.
