Jeg er lidt i tvivle om jeg strikker hver rapport for sig og til sidst syger sammen. Når opskriften nævner striber, er det fordi man strikker alle rapporterne sammen og skifter farver og det vendinger og indtagningen er for hver rapport. Er der en video på tæppet?på forhånd tak😉🌞

Hei Christina. Hele teppet strikkes i 1 stykke. Etter 1 rapport bytter du farge og begynner på ny rapport. Du syr sammen opplegg- og avfellingskanten til slutt. God fornøyelse

Merci pour votre réponse rapide mais désolé vous ne me confirmé pas que je peux faire ce tapis avec des aiguilles normales. je n'ai jamais tricoté avec des aiguilles circulaires, je suis plutôt à l'ancienne moi donc merci de me confirmer que je peux faire ce modèle avec des aiguilles n° 7 merci

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 14:40:

Bonjour Mme Le Floch, comme indiqué dans la réponse précédente, on utilise les aiguilles circulaires dans ce modèle pour tricoter en allers et retours et pas pour tricoter en rond, on peut donc tout à fait utiliser une aiguille circulaire. Vous trouverez ici plus d'infos sur les aiguilles circulaires. Bon tricot!

Maryse Le Floch 06.07.2019 - 20:16:

Peux-t-on faire ce tapis avec des aiguilles droites ? svp , merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 09:16:

Bonjour Mme Le Floch, tout à fait, le tapis se tricote en allers et retours, on utilise des aiguilles circulaires pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles. Bon tricot!
