41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Transferring needles from circs to straights on: May 29, 2007 09:47:56 PM
Hi all!  I need some help with the Knitty "Monica" pattern found here:  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTmonica.html

This is the second Monica that I'm knitting, the first I did as the pattern says...on straight needles...but this time I did circs. I am now finished with the body portion and need to transfer 53 stitches (of the total 106 on my circs, I'm making the smallest size) to a straight needle, making it able to be joined to the ruffle once that is knitted.  My question/problem is this:

1.  How do I put the straight needle into the stitches that are on the circs? I am assuming it is the same as I did before...oriented so the tip of the straight needle is facing right.  Yes?

2. I can't seem to slip the circ needle out once I place the straight needle into the 53 stitches.  HELP!
42  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first FO!!! Knitty's MONICA: Girl's Ruffle Tank on: May 12, 2007 12:20:13 PM
Well...this is my first wearable FO (other than scarves and legwarmers)!  I am so excited and feel pretty good about how it turned out. I've only been knitting since January so this was a big undertaking for me...but my 20-month old niece was worth it!  Smiley  I modified the size to one smaller then the smallest size given on the pattern.  The pattern is Knitty's MONICA: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTmonica.html.  I also took the advice of someone else who posted here a while ago, and left off the back ruffle...I think it looks cuter.  I did a mattress seaming for the sides, but next time I am DEFINITELY going to do this on circs so as to avoid seaming!  I also modified the strap instructions and just bound off the whole top edge, crocheted the straps separately, and then attached them.  ALSO, I added a crocheted ruffle edging to the bottom since it didn't look long enough and I didn't want my niece to be exposing her belly at such a young age.  

Anyway, here is a pic of the front:
