Happy downhill skiier knitting!

Nicht nur f1/4r die olympischen Spiele ... kleine Abfahrtslufer, mit Bergh1/4tte, Bergen und Bumen sind auf dieser M1/4tze zu finden. Die Berge formen auf der M1/4tzenspitze einen Stern ,dessen Mitte eine wunderschne Schneeflocke ziert.
Auf den zweifarbigen Bund folgt eine kleine Norwegerbord1/4re.
Da die M1/4tze durchgngig in zwei Farben gestrickt wird, ist sie auch f1/4r Anfnger des mehrfarbigen Strickens geeignet.

Viel Spass beim Abfahrtslaufstricken!
