I'm a little confused about what the pattern means when you get to the arms...it says to discard the PM and cast on more stitches. I'm confused about the cast on part....do I just take the working yarn and cast it onto my left needle? Confused. I do continental knitting if that helps anyone help me, haha. Thanks!
I started the boatneck style, but had to frog it because it was too big for my narrow shoulders. I'm just going to attempt the regular neckline. Since this is my first sweater, I just need to go slow and see how things fit. I have a bunch of Vanna's Choice acrylic for this one in a light purple.
So, I casted on for the boatneck and this is my very first sweater and one of the first knitting projects I've ever done - - so I have questions!
First, I noticed that the boatneck in some of the photos is ribbed, but the pattern just says to knit around. I'm getting garter stitch. I'm doing the increases and everything, but....am I doing this wrong?
I'm on row three when you start the increases, but I'd like to frog now rather than later. Thanks for your help...I'm excited about this project!
This was a very helpful guide - thanks for putting it together!
I'm just starting out sewing and inherited a discount store Brother machine from my late grandmother. I really can't stand it - especially after watching people work on some sleeker machines at a sewing class!
So, I'm shopping around for a new machine. I know Bernina and others don't post prices and you have to go to a dealer, but how much would a basic model from Bernina run? Assuming it's new. I'm curious about Janome as well.
I've got plans to go to some dealers this weekend and test some things.
