Working out:
Sew all threads carefully. Now tie 30 fringes in the appropriate color over the narrow sides. Cut 4 threads each approx. 36 cm long per fringe. Lay the threads in half and now the resulting loop with crochet. pull a piece through the knitting edge. Pass the thread ends through the loop and tighten the fringe. The finished fringe length is about 17 cm.


Do a stitch test! Knit a 12 x 12 cm piece in the pattern of your chosen model. Then count out stitches and rows in the range 10 x 10 cm. If there are fewer stitches than indicated in the instructions, knit harder or take thinner needles (1/2 to full needle size). If you count more stitches: Try to knit more loosely or use thicker needles.

Please note: knitting works differently. Therefore, the stitch-sample data on the banderoles of wool should not be considered as binding. Moreover, these are always created on the basis of smooth right. For a perfect job, therefore, the stitch test in the desired pattern is a must. So that your desired model not only looks nice, but also fits!
