Dear Mrs Pearson, click on the arrow under the picture to change language and use either UK- or US-terminology. Happy knitting!

Der Engel ist sehr hübsch. Ich habe folgenden Verbesserungsvorschlag: Bei der Anweisung für die Flügel wird von einem Nadelspiel gesprochen. Dieses entspricht im allgemeinen dem Stricken in Runden. Es wird jedoch nur mit zwei Nadeln des Nadelspiels gearbeitet, in Reihen. Ohne die Videoanleitung ist die Bezeichnung "Nadelspiel" mißverständlich.

Elin Tschokert 04.09.2016 - 23:23:

Bei dieser Anleitung ist es bei "Abnahmetipp" schlecht übersetzt aus dem Norwegischen, es muss heißen: 1 M abnehmen, indem 2 M re verschränkt zusammengestrickt werden. So wie es in der Anleitung steht, ist es kaum verständlich.

Liebe Frau Tschockert, zum abnehmen, muss man 2 M re/2 M li zusammenstricken, dh nicht verschränkt siehe auch video unten.

Die sind ja total süß. Ich werde das gleich mal probieren. Niedliche kleine Geschenke.
