I've not run into this type of thumb gusset before (oddly enough) so I'm having trouble visualizing it.
Round 1: make 1 st, k1, make 1 stitch, slip marker, knit around: 38 sts. Round 2: k around
Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until there are 13 sts on the first needle before the marker. (The ending number of every increase round will be 2 sts greater than the previous round) 48 sts
Knit across 13 sts and then slip them onto holders...knit around mitten back to where you put the sts on holders...increase 1 st to keep knitting in the round. Put your beginning of the round marker after the st... 36 sts."
I am altering this pattern to have a rib stitch in a multiple of three, so I want the main body to remain the 36 stitches..
1. All of the increases made during the "thumb gusset" section are not technically in the main body of the mittens, right? They are all picked up later to work the thumb, so I would not work these in the rib pattern..?
2. Instead of M1, would Knit front&back be appropriate in this situation?
Lately I've been making a lot of hats. I've wanted a set of interchangable circs since I started knitting, so with some Christmas cash, I decided to order myself some. I chose the Denise set for (among other reasons) the fact that they had smaller cord sizes and could make a 17" circ.
I'm currently knitting Koolhaas on these 17" circs (of course 1" longer than the recommended/common 16") and my project is full of "holes". It's not a tight fabric at all. Is this likely ONLY due to the fact that I'm knitting loosely/needle size is too large?
I'm concerned that because there's that extra 1" that it's pulling at the stitches. Is this at all an issue?
Ok, we have a bunch of threads about interchangable circular sets.
So, as close as we can get to a poll.. what's your favorite set?
Respond with one (or close to one) word: [#'s as of 2/1 - 11 votes]
Denise - 2
Knitpicks (Harmony) - 3
Knitpicks (Metal) - 6
Let's see what kind of number we get!
Mod's note: Sorry to butt in here, just wanted to mention that I've tried to keep the interchangeables threads in one spot. It's sometimes hard to keep up with all the new threads. Please reserve THIS thread for "voting" only. If you have questions or want to discuss any of the needle sets, please visit the Interchangeable Needle Recommendations thread. Thanks.
I'm starting a ribbed/cabled hat that will be worked in a k4,p1 rib. I've looked at other hat patterns and sites about crown decreases, but I can't decide what to use that won't make the cables look ridiculous at the top.
What is the most important consideration? As a rule (if there is one) where should the decreases be placed as to not ruin the ribbing?
So I got a $75 gift card to A.C. Moore from my boyfriend's stepdad for Christmas. I'm in there all the time (I've been using my daily 40% off coupons to build up my bamboo dpn collection) but now that I have a buttload to spend in there, I don't know what to get!
