Kan I svare på, om det kun er ret pindene som er vist i diagrammet eller det er symbolforklaringen som mangler noget “ret på vrangsiden”?, vi er lidt forvirrede.

Ik heb een vraag over het kabelen: er staat 4 st op een kabelnaald voor het werk leggen; 1st av breien en dan 1 r van de kabelnaald, dan hou je toch 3 st over? vriendelijk dank voor uw antwoord.
