Ik heb 2 hele mooie bolletjes garen waar ik dit patroon graag mee wil maken. Alleen die twee bolletjes hebben totaal maar ongeveer 300 meter. 2 bolletjes Fabel garen is goed voor ongeveer 400 meter. Kan ik dit patroon wel maken, of moet ik toch op zoek naar ander garen?

Dag Linda,

Het totaal aantal meters (/yards) is inderdaad de beste manier om te controleren of je genoeg garen hebt. Dat zou dan inderdaad helaas te weinig zijn.

Tine 06.04.2019 - 10:58:

Smukt sjal. Jeg har købt det flotte garn, men nu mangler jeg også opskriften.

DROPS Design 11.04.2019 kl. 14:33:

Hei Tine. Sånn, da skal den danske oppskrifen også ligge ute. God fornøyelse

AB 01.04.2019 - 13:13:
