DELATTRE PIERRE 20.01.2019 - 03:46:

Bonjour. Je fais ce gilet, en 3 mois. 114 m + 18 = 132 m Or le motif donne ceci : 6 m de M2, M1 (19 m), 6 m de M2, M1 (19 m), 6 m de M2, soit un total de 6+19+6+19+6 = 56 m puis à nouveau 56 m = 112 m 132 m - 112 m = 20 mailles en bout de rang. Donc impossible de refaire un jeu de point fantaisie... ni de laisser cette 3e partie sur le côté gauche non identique au côté droit. J'avoue ne pas comprendre. Un grand merci pour votre réponse.

Bonjour Mme Delattre, il y avait effectivement une faute de frappe, on doit tricoter 16 m de M.2 et non 6 au milieu du motif à répéter, la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Ellen 22.08.2018 - 10:40:

Ik mis het telpatroon M3 klopt dit?

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 18:01:

Dag Ellen, Er stond een foutje in het patroon. Het is de bedoeling dat je M.4 breit in de muts en niet M.3. Ik heb het nu aangepast.

Pat 09.08.2018 - 23:47:

This set is so adorable! I can’t wait to make it!

Patricia Weston 08.03.2018 - 12:22:

Luffen ser rigtig fin ud, men beskrivelsen af hvordan man laver tommelfinger er ikke nem at forstå.Der er ikke skrevet hvor man starter på henholdsvis venstre og højre.
