Help with two patterns.First:
I happened to find a free pattern online, that someone on here kindly mentioned. I'd be very interested in making these but, I think that I might need some help.
First of all is this: (I hope that the link works)http://www.lionbrand.com/archives/lbyarnblog4/2005/08/goodbye_yellow.html
It's for baby booties and, you might have to sign in first.
Row 8: This confuses me. As you'll see, row 7 ended with 36 stitches.
Is something wrong with row 8, or is it just me?
The numbers don't seem to jive with me.
Row 8 states: Knit 10, slip 10 stitches just worked onto one of the holders, bind off next 6 stitches, knit 3, slip 4 stitches just worked on second holder, etc....
How can I slip 4 stitches just worked on to second holder, when it says knit 3 just prior to that?
So should it say, knit 4 instead? And then, slip 4 stiches just worked on to second holder?
Or should it say, knit 3, slip 3 stitches just worked on second holder?
Ok for the same pattern farther down below T-Strap.
Near the end or Row 8, after K2 tog.
It says to, slip 1st stitch on RT needle over the last and off the needle.
Could someone kindly explain to me exactly what that means? Please?Second:
Now for the other pattern. It was also kindly offered here on craftster. A free pattern that someone created.
Here's the link: (again, I hope it works)http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194286.0 (cabled coffee cozy)
I would like to make a few of these but, I need to make them an inch or two wider.
Rather than adding on to the edges, I much prefer to make the cables wider.
I've never done cables before so I would really appreciate any suggestions, on how I could alter the pattern for that.
Thanks so much everyone. You're all terrific!
