Jeg tenkte strikke denne modellen med dobbel tråd, hvorav bomull-lin og big merino for å oppnå en tykkere, varmeregenser. Kan jeg da ta utgangspunkt i samme pinne størrelse og samme antall masker?

Need to Know How much yarn for X-large size.

DROPS Design 25.01.2017 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Everett, you will find total amount of yarn for each size under tab "Materials", ie in size XL for this pattern: 550 g Bomull-Lin or 650 g Paris. Both Bomull-Lin and Paris are 50g balls, divide total weight by 50 to get the number of required balls. Happy knitting!
