1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sock Pattern Q on: November 27, 2008 01:13:30 PM
Like the next step says:

Row:1 S1, k1 across
Row 2: S1, p across

So the instructions for row 1 would have you believe that you are doing s1, k1 over and over until the end of the row. Whereas row 2 is s1 at the beginning and then purl the rest of the stitches. I have a feeling slipping every other stitch on row one would look quite funny!

Actually, that's how I knit my heels - slip every other stitch on the knit row, then when you turn, you purl across, just like you said above.  It looks quite nice, and apparently makes it more durable.  Give it a try!

Rats. Yeah, I already knit it in straight stockinette. Ohhh well. I'll be sure and try it out on the next pair, I assume it's not going to be detrimental to my project (i hope).

Ambimom: Thanks for that pattern, I'm comparing mine to that one and it's already helping!

Ambimom- awesome. And you already answered my next question! I am finding that the instructions are poorly written. Like the next step says:

Row:1 S1, k1 across
Row 2: S1, p across

So the instructions for row 1 would have you believe that you are doing s1, k1 over and over until the end of the row. Whereas row 2 is s1 at the beginning and then purl the rest of the stitches. I have a feeling slipping every other stitch on row one would look quite funny!

I want to get the heel done today because I have to take this on a plane and I highly doubt I'll be able to find help up there!

Riki - My works on 4 needles and I'm using the 5th for knitting.

Miss Violaceous - I hate just assuming the pattern is wrong...but it does seem like a typo. For socks do you normally knit half the stitches for the heel flap? Or is it usually a quarter?

Hey all, I'm working on my first pair of socks and I'm stuck at the heel flap. The pattern says:

Now knit the heel flap:
Divide stitches for heel flap
Knit 16 stitches (to end of needle 1)
Set 32 stitches aside (on needles 2 and 3) for instep
Turn work. S1, and purl back 15 stitches (all stitches on needles 1 and 4)


So where I'm confused is that I cast on 64 stitches, so there are 16 stitches on each needle. If I'm purling back 15 (+1 that was slipped) that's only the stitches on needle 1 and not 4. I would need to purl 32 stitches to work all of the stitches on needles 1 & 4. So...what on earth do I do here.

This was my first time working with a lace pattern, and I think it came out pretty good!



Close up of the lace:


I can't wait to take it to yoga on monday!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Cardigan on: October 20, 2008 04:28:53 PM
I started the Go Everywhere, Go with Everything cardigan from Sn'B three years ago. I only had half a sleeve left when I put it down for a year the first time. I picked it back up, finished it, sewed it together and then didn't bother to weave in the loose ends or crochet on the boarder. Then last night out of nowhere I got it out and finished it. It's a little to short for me, but it looks okay with a long shirt.
