1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knee-high stockings into calf high socks? on: September 09, 2010 05:45:43 PM
Okay, I've never knit socks in my life. But I've been wanting to knit the "Pippi Kneestockings" from Stitch 'n Bitch. They seem easy enough and I really like striped socks. The thing is, I don't like knee high stockings. I'd prefer if they were just a bit shorter and cut off around the calf instead. But again, since I've never knit socks before, I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I've tried looking up other patterns, but alas, have only managed to confuse myself further. If someone could please give some helpful links, or advice, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help on a "Amigurumi Knits" pattern on: June 23, 2010 08:03:53 PM
Hello, I'm new here and also very new to knitting. So forgive me if the answer to my question is incredibly obvious. I feel a tad bit embarrassed as it is asking it. Anyway, I got the book "Amigurumi Knits" by Hansi Singh and decided to knit up the jellyfish. I casted on the required number of sts for the oral arms and divided them up onto three dpns. But my question is this, the pattern says to "continue working back and forth in rows". I'm a bit confused as to what that means. Do I knit back and forth as I would if I was knitting the regular way on two straight needles? This seems like the only way to go, but the arms look a bit wonky when completed and don't look too much like the picture. Perhaps I'm doing something else wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
