1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / men's cardigan reincarnate...suggestions? on: November 14, 2007 06:20:51 PM
I'm making a cardigan for my dad, and it's a surprise replacement for the one he had years ago. I have the original and I want to make it similar but I haven't had any luck finding a pattern (online anyway) that I could alter accordingly. So I'm thinking I could make one up. The basic pattern for a cardigan seems pretty straight-forward, my concern is the cables. I've never done them before and although I think I could figure it out, I'm wondering if you have to make any adjustments to your measurements to account for them? Would you just use your gauge from stocking st?

Also, the sides have this type of stitching (see below), and I don't know what it is...are there dropped stitches or what? Could I get the same effect with another type of stitch?

Obviously, I'm not a super advanced knitter hehee...I am however very ambitious. Any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / the power of blocking? on: November 08, 2007 12:28:48 PM
i'm knitting a hooded scarf for my mom and I wanted to do it in stocking st, but I knew it would curl so I did a border of garter (3 sts on each side). Now that I've gotten a ways in, I notice its still curling....will blocking fix this? or should i start over, giving up on the stocking st?
