1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ribbing tension -- help! on: April 11, 2007 11:22:58 AM
i often have this problem too!
I just started knitting the pomatomus socks from knitty.com and the ribbing for that sock is "purl 1, knit 1 through the back loop" and this gave a really nice result!  You could try doing that; I'm not sure if this affects stretch at all (though it doesn't seem to).

thanks for posting that letter!  i think that may be the problem i had, since when i tried to block mine i did get a lot of stretch in the areas where i did decreases.  now i won't make a second attempt with this yarn when i frog it.   Smiley

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: GAH! Why aren't bodices EVER long enough??? on: March 02, 2007 03:09:01 PM
I think I can help; I altered a pattern like this once for myself.

In this picture the black lines are the original pattern.

So, you would extend along the red lines down the sides to lower/extend the waist.  The middle red lines show that the three pieces that make up the front are all extended (at least, it looks like three pieces in the picture you posted...).  Same for the back.

The green lines are if you need to increase the width to go over your hips.  If you do this you are then changing the width of the bottom edge of the bodice (in purple).
The purple line would be the measurement of your hips where it will sit divided by two, plus seam allowances.

The bottom edge of the bodice and the top edge of the skirt should be equal to each other so they match up when you sew them together.

The skirt is increased to the light blue lines to keep the fullness of the skirt.  You can just cut parallel to the original pattern, but outside of it as far as you need to.

-->  all of this is the same for the back.  Be careful if there is a zipper; extending the bodice is going to change how far down the zipper will reach.

I hope that helps; good luck!   Smiley

haha, I have this magazine and I thought the ribbing looked horrible on the model.

You could try doing the decreases just inside the outermost K2 (rs) stitches; I think that would change the shaping though.  Or do ribbing just under the bust then switch to stockinette and do the decreases in the same place as in the original.

I'd love to see it if/when you finish.  I like this pattern too, except for the bullseye boobs.   Tongue
