1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with the crochet/provisional cast on method on: September 16, 2007 05:36:49 PM
Hi  Grin

I am planning on making the tubey sweater from knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTtubey.html

One thing i don't seem successful with is making the crochet/provisional cast on, i've searched the net and seen methods that come out with perfect live stitches, but when i copy these methods i just end up with a regular crochet chain rather than live stitches... arghh so frustrating!!

I wonder if anyone can help me or direct me to a site that can give simple instructions or where they learned how to do the provisional cast on... and if anyone else finds it difficult???  Huh

Thanks  Smiley
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / help with the clover wrap on: September 02, 2007 07:23:10 AM
I wonder if anyone who has made the clover wrap can offer some help. I'm a little confused with the pattern description, on the right front i see there have been corrections made on the official site and the number of stitches have changed, but i don't seem to match them up the stitches after the increases are made to reduce as much as described and still follow the pattern.

The corrections here:

Right front:

Pattern reads: Inc 1 st at waist edge of next row, then every following 7th row 6 times more – 94(107, 120, 133, 146) sts

Pattern should say: Inc 1 st at waist edge of next row, then every following 7th row 6 times more – 64(73, 86, 98, 112) sts

But the pattern i'm looking at does not match up with the corrections, and nothing else is corrected on this particular piece.

Am i missing something, i'm not sure what i should be doing for the right front now... am in need of some expert knitter advice  Grin

Thanks to anyone who may be able to point me in the right direction.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Garnstudio cardigan completed on: June 11, 2007 05:45:16 AM
I finished the cardigan i was working on from the garnstudio site, pattern here: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=89&d_id=15&lang=us

I made the large size, and its the first item of clothing i've completed, so i'm quite proud of it, i used an acrylic yarn in denim, mainly because i didnt want to spend too much on a yarn to find out i can't do the cardigan, but i think i'll attempt at some point to make another with a nicer yarn, although the acrylic yarn isnt too bad.

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / under the hoodie - need some help please :-) on: June 11, 2007 03:24:18 AM
I wonder if anyone who has completed this project can help me out with a question. I've searched other threads and nobody seems to have the same problem, so it must be something i'm reading wrong and need a bit of direction.

I've started the front piece of the hoodie, and marked the stitches to pick up the pockets. And then the pattern follows by saying track rows and work another 49 rows (i'm doing the Extra large). But nothing else about what length it should be before it gets put on the holders to work on the neckline.

I just knitted the 49 rows thinking it was the length needed, but i can see it needs alot more rows to get to what the picture indicates the neckline is worked on. Can anyone help me to clear up what i am maybe seeing wrong in the pattern or just how long the front piece needs to be before it gets put on a holder, because i've read it over and nothing else is mentioned.

I appreciate any help, thanks!  Smiley
