Anbefalede pind nr til garnet er 5. Opskriften strikkes på 10. Skal den strikkes med een tråd? Hvis så: giver det en “hullet” effekt?

Hej Ane, Ja det stemmer, tæppet strikkes ret løst med én tråd. God fornøjelse!

Wieso wird mit Nadelstärke 10 gestrickt? das Garn wird doch mit Nadelstärke 5 angegeben. wird mit doppeltem Faden gestrickt oder sollen die Maschen riesengroß werden? wenn ich mit kleinerer Nadel stricke messe ich einfach selbst nach bis die Decke die angegebene Größe erreicht????

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 16:23:

Liebe Frau Rienas, man strickt hier mit grösseren Nadeln (Nr 10) um das gewünschte lockere Effekt zu bekommen. Wenn Sie kleinere Nadeln stricken, werden Sie eine andere Maschenprobe bekommen, werden Sie dann sicher mehr Wolle brauchen. Mehr Auskünfte bekommen Sie gerne von Ihrem DROPS Laden.

Super schoen, aber ist die Form ein Quadrat? Waere es moeglich, ein Diagramm zum Schnitt zu sehen? Vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 30.06.2016 kl. 13:39:

Liebe Franziska, Maßangaben finden Sie am Anfang der Anleitung: Maße: Breite: 90 cm. Länge: 140 cm.

Bei dieser Anleitung steht in der Woll-Aufteilung: 6. Streifen. Aber die Anleitung ist nur bis zum 5. Streifen
