1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / color-bar blanket problem on: March 04, 2006 11:46:03 PM
I bought all the yarn to start the Color-Bar blanket today. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the gauge. Using the yarn (Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted) and hook size (I - 5.5mm) as in the book my first square came out as 3 inches X 3 inches; I was supposed to have 4.5 X 4.5. I tried going up one hook size to a J and only got 4 X 4. I don't crochet tightly so I can't see why my gauge is so completely off.

Has anyone else had this problem?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Problem Knitting Hat on: December 31, 2004 12:01:30 PM
I'm knitting 'Hermione's cable-and-bobble hat'. http://knit.atypically.net/hats/hermione/

I realized after I'd done a few rows of cabling that while doing the ribbing I'd accidentally knit instead of purled. I brushed it off, thinking that it wouldn't show since the mistakes could only be seen from the inside. Last night while I was working on it I realized the it would show because to wear it you need to roll up the ribbed part as you can see in the picture in the link.

What I want to know is if I can isolate those stitches and go back instead of having to rip the whole thing. I know it can be done, but what about a stitch under a cable?
Are there any other techniques I might use?
I've already done about half of the cabling and the thought of have to start over again is killing me.
