Je ne trouve pas le vidéo pour les montage des chaussons (Chaussons DROPS au point mousse, tricotés avec 2 fils ”Verdi”. Du 35 au 43)ainsi que d'autre model similaire tel que Dro^s avec torssade,sweet spirited

Bonjour Sonias, pour l'assemblage des chaussons, pliez en double le rang de montage pour le coudre (partie "haute" derrière le talon) - puis assemblez le dessus du chausson en commençant par la pointe (les 20 cm que l'on a conservé) en cousant les 2 côtés du chausson entre elles jusqu'à environ 1/3 de la longueur totale du chausson. Bon tricot!
