Bonjour et déjà merci pour tous ces modèles plus beaux les uns que les autres. ma question, votre explication pour ce modèle nous donnent des rayures horizontales mais la photo est en rayures verticales tellement plus joli. avez vous les explications pour les rayures verticales? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse. Meilleures salutations Natacha

Bonjour Mme Gillam et merci. Les côtes anglaises bicolores se tricotent avec alternativement l'une et l'autre couleur, mais, en tricotant alternativement avec l'une et l'autre couleur le jeté et la m glissée (tour 2 en gris perle) et le jeté et la m glissée (tour 3 en bruyère), on va obtenir les rayures verticales. Cette vidéo montre les côtes anglaises en allers et retours mais vous permettra de visualiser comment en tricotant 1 rang de chaque couleur, on obtient des rayures verticales. Bon tricot!
