Ik heb het gebreide deel uitgetrokken want het resultaat met het alternatieve garen was lelijk. De drie kleuren groen zijn amper te onderscheiden en kleuren matchen niet echt. Jammer maar het voorgestelde alternatief is niet mooi.

Ik ben deze trui aan het breien en heb het idee dat de lengtemaat niet klopt. De lengte die wordt aangegeven komt tot mijn navel terwijl op de foto de trui echt langer lijkt. Ook vind ik het jammer dat de kleuren van het alternatieve garen niet overeenkomen met de originele kleuren. Jammer dat cotton viscose niet meer wordt gemaakt. Ik had me verheugd op het breien van deze trui die al lang op mijn verlanglijst staat maar ben nu enigzins teleur gesteld over het resultaat.

Dag Jeanne,

De hoogte van de trui zou wel moeten kloppen, echter is dit helaas niet goed te zien op de foto :( Natuurlijk ben je vrij om de afmetingen naar eigen inzicht aan te passen.
