Yay, it turned out that was a typo. So I'm back on track and doing great! Should be done before too long!

So it really should be a K2P2 at the end of that row?  What about the first question you came across...did you end up just doing another few rounds of ribbing?

Sorry for all the questions...a friend of mine just started this last night and I'm looking to start it this weekend.  thanks!

Ok, for my first question... I wasn't sure what she meant by "work in pattern as set." It turns out that what that means is that if it looks like you should knit (if the stitch on the last row was knit), then knit. If it looks like you should purl (if the stitch on the last row was purled) then purl. No cabling for this row.

Then for my second question, the pattern said to "k2, p2" at one point in the pattern, where it seemed to me I should p2, k2 or else it would throw off the pattern I already had going. This was a typo, and she is supposed to be fixing this in the pattern - you are really supposed to p2, k2.

Ask all the questions you have... I'm sure someone will answer them if they can. That's what knit-alongs are for!

I started this on Friday in Malabrigo worsted in Emerald. There is a starting picture on my blog so you can see the colour.

I finished mine last night. I've put the pics up on Ravelry, though I hope to get some better ones taken soon. I'll post them here, too, after my class.

That must be GORGEOUS in Malabrigo.  I only have simply soft for mine and I don't even have the pattern yet  Embarrassed.  Maybe once I've made a cheap version, I'll splurge on the Malabrigo.

Here's my Gretel, yall. I haven't blocked it yet. Excuse my crappy camera phone pictures, please! The batteries on my digi cam are dead. Usually I post from Photobucket, but as I already have these on Flickr, I'm going to try using that.






Edited to add that I used 1 skein of Malabrigo in a purple colorway, knit the "slouchy" version, and had a little yarn left over. I did not modify the pattern at all, either... but I did start the ribbing on smaller needles than recommended, I think a 4? I have the hat blocking now.

It is gorgeous! I love that colour and it really suits you!

Mine is drying at the moment as for some crazy reason I decided to block it!
