1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Help- To Dye for Sleeves on: December 07, 2004 10:08:47 PM
Help a girl out? 

I just CO and knitted the first 4 rows sts.  So far, so good.  Now, the directions read:

"Dec 1 st on each side next RS row"   Ok, so on my next row, I decrease on my first stitch and then... do I decrease the next stitch as I am purling back the next row?? Huh

"Every 6th row 4 times; then every 4th row 2 times"

OK, now I'm totally lost. 
 Huh

Thanks!

Has anyone tried these?  My husband saw them in the book and went crazy saying he needed a pair.  I played it off that they were too complex and I couldn't knit them- knowing that it would be fun to knit them on the sly and then surprise him for Christmas. 

However, it's not going to smoothly. 

My LYS didn't have the bulky, so I went with the worsted weight.  Did a swatch to get some idea of gauge.  Came across a problem- the pattern is only for a women's meduim, which my husband is not.  So, decided that the best thing to do would be to add an inch to the width and then increase the length by 4 inches total. 

But, wow... I seem to be knitting something HUGE.  Not super wide but really really long.  This is my first felting project, so maybe I am over-reacting.  But, still! 

Anyway, I have been lurking here for a few weeks and finally have a reason to post something.  Hopefully someone out there has attempted these and can give me some pointers!

Thanks!
