Hej - Jeg har 3 1/2 nøgle blåviolet tilbage, og er færdig med tæppet. Er det til en kant, som ikke er beskrevet i opskriften ? Lige nu har jeg hæklet 2 rækker fastmasker rundt om tæppet - men hører gerne fra jer alligevel, hvis der skal være en speciel kant.

Hej Vivi, nej der skal ikke være nogle kanter ud over det som står i opskriften (du må naturligvis gerne afslutte med kanten fra 4.omgang rundt om hele tæppet). Vi har ikke fået andre kommentarer om at der skulle være for meget garn, men det er hermed noteret.
