I'm officially knit-retarded. 

I'm on the sleeves, row 44 where I do a Centered Double Decrease on the RS and for the life of me (since I'm a new knitter) can't figure out exactly how I would twist the stitches?  Any help?

Uhhh I dont know because I dont even have the instructions, but a SSK decrease would twist the stitches and I think K2Tog through the back loop also twists them.

I meant WS, here are the directions that I'm confused about just in case:

"sl next 2 sts to right needle without twisting; sl these sts back to the left needle, twisting them individually."  There is more that comes after that but I understand those parts.

I know that if you twist it the wrong way it can mess up the stitch on the other side, so now exactly how do I twist them?

Thanks for any help.

oh, that part.  i just plowed through it, figuring if it didn't say how in particular to do something, it didn't matter.

If I can remember correctly, to slip them without twisting, slip sts as if to purl.  to twist them, slip the first as if to knit, then slip the next as if to knit.

Some photos of my work in p-rogue-gress:

The whole lot so far, with bonus cat tail-tip:



and detail:



I'm really happy with the way it's coming along.

Edited to add: I decided to leave off the kangaroo pocket to avoid drawing attention to my belly which is not my favourite body part. I've also done an extra pattern repeat to add some length. I agree with TamaraInCyberspace that too-short jumpers are a pain. And the boiler in my office is kaput so I'm going to need warmth.

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

These look so nice!

I do have a quick question. I'll probably knit Rogue for myself at some point, but the design just screams to me that it would be perfect for my very-proud-to-be-Irish brother-in-law. If only it were a men's pattern too!!!

Do you think it would be too difficult to adjust Rogue to be a men's hoodie? I'm not a terribly advanced knitter, but am mostly solid on the basics, and am pretty adventurous at trying new things Wink

Thanks!

Well... I'm not a terribly advanced knitter so I think there will be other, more in-depth answers to this question! But here's my 2p's worth anyway. The girly waist shaping all takes place within the side cables, so as long as you were skilled enough to amend the cable design to remove the shaping, you'd be laughing. I for one am not that skilled. Yet.

In other news... I had to frog again Cry I just wasn't happy with the throat cable, and when I got to picking up stitches for the hood I discovered that my stitch count was somehow off again. So rather than just wing it I frogged back to before the throat cable. That'll teach me to knit whilst watching Celebrity Big Brother.

I've got this sweater back on track... Finally I finished all my gift knitting and can focus on knitting for me!  (At least until closer to mother's day.)  I've done the body up to round 56 of the charts.  I'm making the small size and am using some wool that a fellow craftster sent me from Australia.  No pictures yet.
