I would try increasing by knitting into the front and back.  If you are switching to ribb at the same time I don't think you will be able to see where you increased.

You are a tesoro!!
I made the conversion to cm, and with the photos you put i can know which are the stichs. The only thing lest is to know how many decrease and increase i have to make. Would you be so nice to tell me an example?
Thank you   Smiley Smiley Smiley
Hice la conversion ya se cuales son los puntos, lo unico que no entiendo bien es como se hacen los aumentos, me lo podrias decir con un ejemplo?
Gracias.

So I'm getting pretty far into my stockinette section and I'm wondering if I should do the whole 20 inches.... I'm pretty short so I don't know. Whihc part of my back should I measure so I know how much I should do? Is it neck to waist measurement?

No problem! You only decrease and increase once! For example, I am making the mock rib 22 inches long and the 2x2 ribbing 8 inches long on each end of the mock rib section. When you cast on and knit the 2x2 ribbing, your stitches are twice as many as you need for the mock rib section. So then  you would decrease tthe stitches by half right before you start knitting the mock rib section. Then at the end of the mock rib section, you would increase because you only have half the stitches you need for the 2X2 ribbing section. So you would increase the stitches until you have the same amount you cast on with. My example is I cast on 306 stitches, knit the 2x2 rib for 8", then I decreased my stitches by half for one row, and now I have 153 stitches on my needle. I then knit the mock rib section for 22" and at the end of that, increased my stitches by half for one row. Now I have 306 stitches again, and now I can knit another 8" of 2x2 ribbing. Then cast off. That's how it ends up being a trapezoid shape, instead of a straight rectangle. I hope this is clear... let me know if you do not understand.


¡Ningún problema! ¡Usted sólo disminuye y aumenta una vez!  Por ejemplo, yo hago la costilla simulada 22 pulgadas de largo y el ribbing 2x2 8 pulgadas de largo en cada fin de la sección simulada de costilla. Cuándo usted lanza en y tejió el ribbing 2x2, sus puntadas son el doble como usted necesita para la sección simulada de costilla. Así que entonces usted disminuiría las puntadas de tthe por medio derecho antes usted empieza a tejer la sección simulada de costilla. Entonces a fines de la sección simulada de costilla, usted aumentaría porque usted sólo tiene la mitad las puntadas que usted necesita para la sección de ribbing 2X2. Así que usted aumentaría las puntadas hasta que usted tenga la misma cantidad que usted lanza en con. Mi ejemplo es lancé en 306 puntadas, tejí la costilla 2x2 para 8", entonces disminuí mis puntadas por la mitad para una fila, y ahora yo tengo 153 puntadas en mi aguja. Yo entonces tejí la sección simulada de costilla para 22" y a fines de eso, aumentó mis puntadas por la mitad para una fila. Ahora tengo 306 puntadas otra vez, y ahora yo puedo tejer otro 8" de ribbing 2x2. Entonces lance lejos. Eso es cómo acaba por es una forma del trapezoide, en vez de un rectángulo recto. Espero que esto sea claro... permitió que mí saber si usted no entiende.

I did the 20 inches of mock rib and then increased with the make one and then started the 2x2 ribbing and it left holes!  I frogged it and am back to the increase section again... Why did I have holes?  help!  I so want to wear this thing!

Did you make one by yarning over?  That would leave a hole for sure.  I would use either the bar increase method or the one that I used, which was to knit into the front and the back of the stitch.

Here are some tutorials that will hopefully be of some help to you!
On this page: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/increase.php
Check out the M1L (this is what I call the bar increase, they call it something else) and the Bar Increase or k1f&b (knitting the front and back of the needle).  They will show you exactly what you need to do.  Hope this helps!

Hi all! I screwed it up really bad...  Cry I actually started crying when I realized I had spent all those hours making it and it was waaaaaay too big. I cast on 76 too many stitches, as you can imagine, it wasn't pretty. There are some pics on my blog of my hubby modelling it as a joke, and it is waaaaaaaaaaay to large for him. I thought I was going to make it too small, and the stress of that made me make it too big. Sigh.  Embarrassed

So now I am either going to steek it, or unravel it completely. I cast on too much, there is no other choice.

On a brighter not, I cast on for this again, this time in grape colored worsted and I was super careful about my measurements/cast on amount equalling the FO. I am going to use the yarn I used for this project for something else.

there is a link to my blog in my sig.

Wish me luck y'all!

I finished it, I really really finished it!  I am quite happy with myself, even though I think I won't wear it that often.  More of a milestone in my knitting life - not a scarf, not a hat, not an armwarmer!!!  I haven't decided on a button as of yet though!
