3661  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Very Easy Ripple Shawl...not so easy for me. on: May 09, 2006 04:24:31 AM
Okay, so....let me make sure I've got this correct. 

On Row 3, I'm reading it as follows...

Row 3 K3, *[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3.

So...knit three, knit two together three times so that's condensing 6 stitches into three....

then then following is YO K1, so there will be 6 YO and 6 K1, then you repeat, right?  I'm coming up with a number that is way off and I'm using stitch markers when I finish each repeat.

After you [yo, k1] 6 times, don't forget to [k2tog] 3 times again, *then* repeat the whole thing. If you're only doing one [k2tog] 3x between the [yo,k1] 6times, you'll be off with too many stitches. Maybe that's the problem.

You're either skipping one or more yo's, adding extras, or forgetting a k2tog. Count the stitches when you finish row 2, then again when you end row 3. You should have the same number. It can be very easy to lose track...

3663  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Winding my yarn..."How To" Question on: May 08, 2006 06:57:05 PM
First, wind the yarn around a chair back and fasten off the end by looping it around the skein. Then take it off the chair, one hand each side and twist it around. It will tend to coil around itself. Put one end in the loop of the other and you should have a skein resembling one in the pictures.

Did anyone have problems with the front triangle piece? Mine doesn't seem to fit the diagram. Shouldn't the triangle front piece end up even with the lower portion of the back, so you can pick up the stiches for the ribbed collar?

I also think that I did the back piece too large for my size. I don't know if there is a way to fix that without redoing the entire back side.

Any help appreciated!!

Are you following the pattern from the magazine, or the revised one on the Lion website? There were lots of errors in the original printed one.

You could probably make a wide I cord - 8-12 stitches depending on your needle size -  put the elastic in and seam up.

Try the old standby -- yo, k2tog - repeat. Next row, purl or knit. Repeat.

3667  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tips on Knitting two stitches together? on: May 07, 2006 08:16:40 AM
Or it could be your stitches are really tight. Try loosening up the tension a little.

With Right Side facing, pick up and knit (huh..?? where on earth do i pick up them, and where do they go..?) approximately 76 stitchess evenly around upper back edge.(erm... upper back edge of the back or of the sleeve..?)  Bind off stitcheds purlwise. (erm..? purlwise bind off..? [that will be on knittinghelp.com yeah..?)

Picking up stitches means taking the edge of your piece, inserting a needle and `making' a knit stitch - repeat for 76 stitches along the upper back (that will be the part you don't use for the sleeves) and 76 along the upper back. It will be easier if you seam the sleeves up first, then you'll only have to worry about the upper and lower back edges. Then you bind off in purl stitch, and yes, knittinghelp.com should explain how to do that along with how to pick up stitches.

Umm.... that is true, but rows don't matter in a raglan pattern....

Sorry to correct you, but I didn't want her to waste time measuring it!

I meant like for the finished size, to make sure the length is right.

Edited because i just did my swatch and it's oddly 17 sts over 4 inches on size 9s. Again. Didn't I get that on size 10s? *scratching my head* Oh well, now at least I can use your measurements no prob. lol YAY!

I know, the same thing happens to me, its the same amount of stitches, but one looks nicer than the other.

C'est la vie, eh?

I've noticed that going up or down a size doesn't really change the stitches per inch very much, but it can change the rows per inch. So don't forget to measure....
