this is my first time knitting any kind of hand accessory too. it's not as difficult as you think. i would have attempted these sooner if i knew how easy they would be. if you have knitted in the round using double pointed needles before, then you can definitely make these.

Thank you so much, i must give it a try Cheesy Cheesy

OK, you're just dropping one stitch but you need to let it/make it run or unravel several rows deep at least before you can continue. It doesn't matter exactly how many rows you let it run, because eventually you'll need to make ALL the stitches you drop in the course of making your clapotis run the full length of the piece.

After you do that, you'll have something that resembles a ladder where your dropped stitch was, because each row will have a bar of yarn. Like so:
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch___stitchstitchstitchstitchstitchstitch')

You just poke your left needle through and pick up the very top bar, then treat it like a stitch. I always interpreted those directions as wanting me to pick it up from the front, then when you ktbl it becomes a tight, twisted stitch like a make one increase, but I may be wrong on that. I doubt it matters much so long as you're consistent throughout the piece.

The one mistake I made early on was to somehow interpret "k this and foll st tbl" as "k this and foll st TOG tbl". Don't do that, they are still two separate stitches when you get done with them. :-p

Hi all.

It not to late to join this KAl, i am advanced beginner and soon i will be on section 3 and i m really stuck . Cry
Any help will be apprecaited.

Section 3 (Straight Rows)
Row 1 and all odd-numbered rows: Sl1, p to last 2 sts, p2tog.
Row 2: P1, k2, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, kfb.
Row 4: P1, k1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k4, kfb.
Row 6: P1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, ssk, pm, yo, kfb.
Row 8: P1, remove marker, drop next st, let it drop down several rows, pick up top bar with left needle to form a new st (make sure this st isn't twisted), k this and foll st tbl, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, kfb.
Row 10: P1, k4, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k1, kfb.
Row 12: P1, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k2, kfb.
Repeat Straight Rows 1-12, twelve times more.

My questions are :how many stiches will drop ?how to pick up top bar ??i m really confused , if someone can explain to me.
thank you!!

I hope this doesn't bother anyone, but I'm dying to know if I'm reading the pattern right.  I just finished my first dropped stitch in the Straight Rows section, and it looks wonky to me (the dropped sts form a crescent shape, actually, and not a straight line):

Row 8: P1, remove marker, drop next st, let it drop down several rows, pick up top bar with left needle to form a new st (make sure this st isn't twisted), k this and foll st tbl, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, kfb.

The top dropped stitch is supposed to be picked up, without twisting it at all?  But, then I'm supposed to knit it thru the back instead of front?  That'll twist it, right?  But, then on Row 9 I'll be purling it together with the last stitch...   Or, does the crescent shape just block out?



I love your color , what kind of yarn are you using?
