When all stitches have been decreased, 9-9-19-19-29-39 stitches in stocking stitch remain between front pieces and back piece.

When piece measures 37-35-36-35-36-35 cm, work A.2 over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME on first round decrease 1 stitch (i.e. work A.2 5-5-5-6-6-6 times in total in width) = 50-50-50-60-60-60 stitches.

Hei, dette er en veldig fin modell, men dessverre er oppskriften ovenfra og ned og veldig lang og tungvint. Dette måtte det da være mye greierer å ta nedenfra og opp!? Jeg skjønner ikke hvorfor dere nå har så mange oppskrifter ovenfra og ned; det blir tungt og krøkkete å strikke ermene på den måten. Men dette virket spesielt knotete!

Amy 05.02.2018 - 23:05:

Wow. You used my name suggestion. Thank you!

Nia 31.01.2018 - 14:38:

Nøj, hvor jeg glæder mig til opskriften kommer. Kan næsten ikke vente. Skal lave én i både Vin og Petrol....

Laura Jensen 26.01.2018 - 19:17:
