Hallo, ich habe sie gemacht, diese Decke. Sie hat bei mir allerdings die Größe 1,80x1,20m. Oje das war viel Arbeit und ein Projekt über mehrere Jahre. Nun ist sie fertig und ist ein echter Hingucker worden.

Was für eine schöne Decke! Wir waren gerade in Irland, und ich schwelge noch in den irischen Aranmustern und stricke schon an einem Pullover.... Aber ich glaube, die Decke muss nun auch in mein Programm

Eine tolle Decke für lange Winterabende und auch für kalte Spätsommertag. Ein Allrounder.
