Mi piace tantissimo questa lavorazione ma, al rovescio come si presenta? Perchè secondo me una coperta dovrebbe essere "bella" da tutte e due le parti

Buongiorno Elena. Sul rovescio si presenta a maglia rasata rovescia. Può provare a fare un piccolo campione per vedere meglio il risultato. Buon lavoro!

El orden de los colores está mal cuando se vaya por la fila número 15 hay que meter uno de los colores rosados el borgoña y en el patrón no te viene así. Lo digo para que lo corrijan pues ahora me sobra del kit que he pedido más de un ovillo y medio de ese color y cuando he estirado la manta en el suelo me he dado cuenta del fallo. Por favor, corregidlo. Gracias, por lo demás Eskimo es muy buena para trabajar y me ha gustado mucho.

Hola Susana, repasamos el patrón teniendo en cuenta ese posible error para ver si es necesario corregirlo como dices y si es sólo en la versión de español o general para que se haga en todos los idiomas. Gracias por tu comentario y me alegro de que te gusten nuestros materiales.

Je suis conquise par le dégradé de couleurs. Je trouve le point à la fois simple et original. Encore un ajout sur ma liste de choses à faire.
