1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone made sleeveless top from Knit Simple? on: October 04, 2007 10:43:46 PM
Has anyone attempted this top from Knit Simple Fall 07?

I started making the large size (I did make a yarn substitution, but was getting gauge). Decided that was too large and frogged for a medium. Finished that the other day and it is still too large and shapeless. I thought the waist shaping was cute and should look nicer and shaplier. Just wondering if it is worth it to frog and start on a small Sad
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Picot Bind Off on: November 09, 2006 07:22:54 PM
Hello everyone....

Mostly a lurker here, but I have just finished my first Mrs. Beeton's wristwarmer and wanted to do the picot bind off (decided against it on the 2 pairs of Fetching I did earlier) and am somewhat confused. I understand the directions on how to do the bind off online, but the directions given in the pattern seem strange:

 Using MC only, BO 1 st, [turn work and CO 2 sts using Cable Cast On, turn work and pass second st over first st, pass third st over second st (one st rem on right needle); BO 2 sts] to end.

Can anyone enlighten me on the best way to accomplish a nice looking bind off- sort of like in the pictures? It looks so much better than my attempts so far.
