Dag, heerlijk patroon. Vraag over de mouw: er worden 25 steken opgezet (kleinste maat). Heb ook bij het originele patroon gekeken. Ook 25 steken. De stekenproef geeft 11 steken per 10 cm aan. Dat betekent een mouwbegin van ca 23 cm. Werkelijke polsomvang kleinzoon is ca 12 cm. Ik wil dus minder steken opzetten, maar hoe zit het dan met de meerderingen?

Dag Nanny,

Het aantal steken dat je minder opzet, moet je weer toevoegen bij de meerderingen, zodat je aan het eind weer hetzelfde aantal meerderingen hebt. M.a.w. je moet dus vaker minderen. Dit moet je verrekenen met het aantal cm waarna je moet minderen.
