<bump> Wink

I can't believe it's taken me so long to post this, but there's a jumper (that's what we call a sweater in Australia) that the character Dawn wears on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 6, Episode     , The Body. There's a good shot of it in the opening credits of Season 7. Anyway here are some links to some screen shots. I couldn't find a really clear image, this is the best I've been able to do so far.

It's such a gorgeous lace panel at the front and I love the little collar too. If anyone could post a better image that would be great. Otherwise I might have to design something similar myself one day.
Cheers all.  Smiley

Sorry but I found this on another site & it is so ridiculous i wanted to give it a thread of it's own .......

Free Pattern :
Piggy Dress for a Guinea Pig .
http://209.17.131.1/craft/dress.htm

It's not ridiculous. I downloaded it even though I don't have a guinea pig.
This pattern is one of the reasons that I love the internet.

Well, its www.webarchive.org I think.  You have to know what url you're looking for.  I just went to Elann's free patterns page and copied the url into Web Archive's "wayback machine" and it came up with archived versions of the page.  It shows pictures of the patterns that were available, but I haven't found a way yet to actually view the old patterns, since it's tough to figure out what the old urls for the patterns themselves were. 

You just need click on the picture or the text as you would as if it were a current site. The patterns are all there in the archive. I couldn't find the pattern that's being asked for but I didn't look at all the Elann pages. I typed elann.com into the search space and a whole list from 1998 to 2004 came up.

I have to update this. I've been looking through the site and though most of the pics have patterns linked to them, some do not unfortunately.

8ball it would be great to see a pic of the pattern that you wanted. Smiley

I'm interested.

I live in Australia though, so I could be too far away.

Scans of knitting can look good though. I could always send a scan of what I did.

Thank you both so much for your responses.

I think what I'll do is knit a sleeve and see if it matches up with the arm hole. If it does, coolies, and if not, then I'll email the designer.

I am knitting Otis in Mohair, but I have made sure my gauge is correct.

I'm so glad I posted my problem. Smiley Smiley
997  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's Otis - Help!!! on: April 12, 2005 03:01:26 PM
Help!!!

I am knitting Otis from Knitty Spring 2004, http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTotis.html .

I've knitted the front two cross over panels, (well almost) and I've discovered a problem with the pattern. I've searched all the boards and haven't been able to find anyone else referring to a similar problem. I do think I read something on a blog one time, but I'll be *amned if I can find it.

The left and right panels are basically the same except reversed. Three rows of seed stitch then plain knitting with some waist shaping and then the decrease to make the cross over style front. My problem comes at the end of the following section, it comes from the instructions for the left front panel :-

Cont to work wrap shaping as established 7 times more, ending with RS facing. (46(50, 54, 58] sts). Work will measure 8[8, 9, 9] inches from beg.
Cont working wrap shaping at the end of each RS row as established

At the same time, begin armhole shaping as follows:
Row 1 (RS): BO 3 sts, work to end.
Row 2 and all WS rows: K1, p to last st, k1.
Row 3: BO 2 sts, work to end.
Next 2[3, 3, 4] RS rows: SSK, work to end. (35[37, 41, 43] sts).
Work wrap shaping 15[17, 19, 21] times more, ending with RS facing. (20[20, 22, 22] sts). Work will measure 14[14.5, 15, 15.5] inches from beg.

I'm knitting the largest size so I'll be referring to the last number in the square brackets. Basically what's happened is, everythings fine at the 9 inch mark, ie. before the armhole shaping. I have the right number of stitches on my needle and the work measures the right length. The armhole shaping also appears to be fine, it's straight forward line by line instruction and and the stitches are right. I've highlighted where my problems begin. "Work wrap shaping 21 times more", I take to mean 42 more rows of knitting with a decrease on the right side, as the wrap shaping is given as two rows of knitting earlier on. I end up with 22 sts on my needle, and it looks ok, however it measures way more than 15.5 inches. It's more like 18 plus inches! The same thing happens on the other side.

So is it just a misprint? or am I doing something wrong? This is very frustrating.
I'm sure others out there must have attempted this pattern.
 Angry Angry Angry

Please help. Kim.
