Liebes Drops Design-Team, Ich habe eine Frage zum Abketten bei den Ärmeln. Bedeutet “weiter 2 M abketten, bis die Arbeit 57 cm misst“ “weiter jede 2. Nadel abketten, bis die Arbeit 57 cm misst? Danke schon mal für die Antwort.

Liebe Andrea, Sie werden 2 Maschen beidseitig (= am Anfang jeder Hin- sowie Rückreihen) abketten, bis die Arbeit 57 cm misst. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dieser Pullover sieht so herrlich transparent aus mit dem Vivaldi Garn. Leider ist dies nicht mehr im Sortiment. Gibt es ein vergleichbares, das ähnlich transparent wirkt? Die Alternativen Garne sehen so ganz anders aus! Für eine Antwort wäre ich sehr dankbar. Vielen Dank für die wundervollen Anleitungen!

Liebe Ingrid, gerne können Sie mit 2 Fäden Kid-Silk oder 1 Faden Brushed Alpaca Silk erszetzen - hier lesen Sie mehr über Garnalternative. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
