Hallo, kann man das Muster auch in Runden stricken? Und wie verhindere ich Löcher zwischen den Sternen? Danke für Ihre Antwort.

Volgens mij is in patroon 158-20 bij het sterrenpatroon nld 2 het woord samen breien vervallen. 3 av "samen breien" etc

Hoi Diny. Je hebt gelijk, er moet staan tussen de sterretjes in nld 2: * 3 av samen maar laat de st niet van de nld glijden, 1 omsl, 3 av samen in dezelfde 3 st en laat ze van de nld glijden, 1 r *. Ik heb het patroon aangepast. Bedankt voor het melden!
