That's awesome! And I'll be very interested to see the stitch pattern for a Toaster Strudle hat.

Thanks for the advice!

I've tried tugging on the yarn between the knit and purl stitches, but it doesn't seem to be helping much (I'm a fairly tight knitter anyway). I'm hoping that the blocking will fix it up.
I think the designer suggested the steam block method so the ribbing would stay springy and elastic, but I may be wrong. And I'll very carefully check my piece for dirt before I block it now!
214  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Uneven knitted ribbing- how can I fix this? on: October 08, 2005 12:42:16 AM
I'm knitting a sweater at the moment that uses a lot of k2 p2 ribbing ('Pinup Queen' from SnB, for those of you playing at home).
The trouble is that the ribbing is not coming out entirely even- the left stitch of the two is slightly larger and sloppier than the right one. I know this is a natural thing that happens to hand-knit ribbing, but is there anything I can do during the blocking process to even it out?
The pattern calls for 'steam blocking' (lightly steaming the knitting with an iron) as opposed to the normal wet blocking I usually do. Is this going to cause problems with getting the stitches to sit evenly?

Hints and tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

That's great!
My first sweater was 'Skully' from SnB, and although it turned out the size of a small marquee, my affinity for knitted skulls remains. Good job!

I am always a fan of new methods of yarn storage- especially storage as nice as that!

Wow, that is sexy. I didn't like that pattern when I looked at it on the Loop-d-Loop website, but on you it looks incredible! Hot hot hot.  Shocked
