Hej vil lige høre om i har fundet ud af mit spørgsmål? Vh Britt

DROPS Design 08.08.2017 kl. 08:21:

Hej Britt, jo men det skal passe, du hækler 18 lm imellem stykkerne og mønsteret går over 9 masker, så du skal hækle de to stykker som tidligere, plus 2 gange over de nye masker. God fornøjelse!

Britt 14.06.2017 - 09:42:

Hej Jeg er kommet til forstyk hvor jeg hækler venstre og højreskulder sammen med 18 lm jeg laver str. xxl, der kan jeg ikke få det til at passe sammen med mønsteret.

Britt 12.06.2017 - 14:12:

Jeg kan ikke få mønsteret til at passe på forstykket. Jeg har lavet ryggen. Kan der være en fejl i maske antallet? Vh Britt

DROPS Design 13.06.2017 kl. 13:55:

Hej Britt, Kan du beskrive hvor du er i opskriften. Hvilken størrelse du hækler og hvor mange masker du har, så skal vi se på det.

Britt 12.06.2017 - 09:56:

Jeg har lavet ryggen på denne, og er nu gået til skulder på forstykket. Jeg kan ikke få mønsteret til at passe. Er der muligvis en fejl i mønsteret? britt
