Kan ik deze trui ook breien met Drops Andesmix 7130? hoeveel wolle heb ik dann nodig? Ik ga naar Nederland en zou da graag deze warme trui willen breien .

Janny Verwoert 17.12.2017 - 14:58:

Kun je een trui van het patroon ook met gewone breinaalden breien. bij al de patronen staat een rondbreinaald.

DROPS Design 17.12.2017 kl. 20:28:

Hallo Janny, Een aantal patronen zijn niet geschikt om op rechte naalden te breien, zoals truien met Scandinavische patronen in de pas, omdat deze patronen helemaal in de rondte doorlopen in de pas. (Vaak patronen met een PAS dus) Maar heel veel patronen zijn ook wel geschikt, zoals deze met mouwen die je apart breit en er later in naait. In deze instructie vind je informatie over hoe je een patroon aan kunt passen, zodat je het kunt breien met rechte naalden. Veel breiplezier!

Kunne man bruge noget andet garn til denne trøje, måske to tråde, måske noget lidt langhåret, det må bare ikke kradse

DROPS Design 01.11.2016 kl. 10:21:

Hej Charlotte. Du kan erstatte med 3 traade Kid-Silk - se garnkortet her. Eller laes her hvordan du erstatter med et andet garn og beregner hvor meget du skal bruge

Melody er et dejligt garn - og jeg kan godt lide de flotte snoninger på forstykket!
