Esimene taoline lugu juhtus hulk aega tagasi ja sellest võib lugeda siin.
The first story of this type occured some time ago and you can read here about it.
I began to ponder when the border pattern should be started. A certain number of stitches is necessary for that. This linen is not on sale in Estonia. I thought that in the worst case I can make the border in a contrasting colour (for instance, black). Then I decided to have the remnants of the yarn weighed in the store. The ball of yarn in the bottom picture is bigger than an average-sized apple (the plastic back is inside in order to prevent the other end from coming out and getting tangled).
It came out that I have 36 g left, not bad at all. Thus, it is possible to knit several pattern repeats more without any risk.
