Hej! När man gör omslagen i mönstret, är det meningen att påsen ska bli bredare upptill? Min påse blev bredare upptill och fick lite typ ”volang”-liknande form i kanten. //Nybörjarstickaren Nicole

Hej Nicole, Vad kul att du har börjat sticka :) När du stickar ihop 2 maskor och gör 1 omslag, så har du samma antal maskor. Omslaget gör att det blir lite lösare och kanske lite "volang-liknande", det blir superfint. Stort lycka till :)
