Lett og fin oppskrift ... grei og bruke når man skal lære seg noe nytt uten at den er for komplisert.

Ulla 16.07.2017 - 14:06:

Hej, Som Renate har skrevet, vil jeg også gerne vide, hvordan man kommer ned på 66 m efter A2. Hvad er det, som jeg ikke fatter? Venlig hilsen Ulla

DROPS Design 09.08.2017 kl. 14:48:

Hej Ulla, Jo A.2 strikkes over 12 masker og altså 6 gange på omgangen. På næst sidste pind i A.2 tager du 1 maske ind i højre side af diagrammet hver gang diagrammet gentages. Det blive da 6 indtagninger. 72-6=66 masker. God fornøjelse!

I cannot get the diagram or color chart to print for DROPS Extra 0-1204 or for DROPS 161-34. Please advise.

Dear Mrs Johnson, clean your cache and try again, it should work better. Happy knitting!

Renate 03.12.2015 - 16:41:

Dere kan se bort fra spørsmålet jeg stilte. Innser jo nå at det er hodet mitt som ikke fungerer og at oppskriften er helt rett!

Renate 03.12.2015 - 16:39:

I oppskriften står det: Når A.2 er strikket ferdig er det 66 m på p. Jeg ser ikke helt hvor de maskene felles. Ser det felles en maske på slutten av A2, men i A1 legger man jo til en for hver som felles?

Kauniit!

Marianne 12.01.2015 - 21:06:

Ruth 10.01.2015 - 15:24:

Een subtiel zomersokje. Laat zich makkelijk combineren met kleding als een spijkerbroek etc.

Maija 07.01.2015 - 16:19:
