1  Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet- By julsey723 in Knitalongs by iamacliche on: May 22, 2008 07:30:21 AM
OK, I made sure to do all the yo, om, p1, yo and I checked to make sure the stitch markers were all in the same section.  Seriously, I was really careful, but my slants are still all facing the same direction.  I've never done yo's before, so maybe that's where I went wrong.

The sleeves matched up the same throughout, but I know I made a mistake somewhere.
The first section before the first stitch marker is way too short also.
Can anyone help me figure out what I did wrong?

I'm thinking about redoing this in a looser gauge and I'd like to know where I went wrong before starting.

back

No they should not slant in the same direction. Each of the five sections (front, sleeve, back, sleeve, front) should be getting wider which makes the eyelets get further apart kinda like this (except with 2 eyelets at each red O). The purple is the fronts, blue is the sleeves, green is the back.

I would guess there is a problem with where you are doing the yarn overs. As you get to each marker you should:
YARNOVER BEFORE the marker
SLIP the MARKER
PURL 1
YARNOVER again

Hope this helps.

I finished up mine the Sunday before Christmas.
I made mine slouchier, but it's hard to tell when it's on the Styrofoam head  Cheesy

3  My Mock Kilting Stitch Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by iamacliche on: January 04, 2008 10:31:12 PM
I finished this more than a month ago and kept forgetting to post it here.
The stitch pattern is Esther Bozak's.  You can find it here:

It's probably my favorite.  This is the third scarf I've made using this stitch pattern
