Oh thats really lovely cloveroverdover!!

I should be finished in about a week or so with mine, can't wait.
For some reason, knitting with tiny wool and tiny needles gives me
a little nausea if I knit for more than 15 or 20 mins at a time... have to
rest for a bit.....  Totally weird.

Maybe I'm concentrating too hard or something  Sad

Ok, so I have stubbled into a problem with the sleeves:

Shape Sleeve Cap
BO 4[6, 6, 6, 8, 8] sts at beg of next 2 rows. 72[72, 76, 84, 90, 98] sts rem.
BO 0[0, 2, 4, 4, 6] sts at beg of next 2 rows. 72[72, 72, 76, 82, 86] sts rem.

Work 3 rows in patt.
Next Row [RS]: K1, ssk, work in patt to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.
Repeat these 4 rows 2[2, 2, 4, 9, 12] times more. 66[66, 66, 66, 62, 60] sts rem.


I understand the first 2 rows.
But when I reach this row: Next Row [RS]: K1, ssk, work in patt to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1., I'm on the wrong side of my work, but clearly should be on the right side.

What am I doing wrong?  Or is the pattern incorrect?

If anybody can help I would really appreciate it!

yes i think you might have stumbled across a problem. Thanks for highlighting this - I'll email corrections to knitty asap.
But yes you will be on the wrong side - work that row in pattern and then the next shaping row. Does that make sense?

Oh wow!!!  Thanks so much ysolda - you're a doll...

Do you mean this...

Instead of this:
Next Row [RS]: K1, ssk, work in patt to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.

Do this in it's place:
P1, ssp, work in patt to last 3 sts, P2tog, P1.

Or did I not understand you at all?

Cheers, Zia.  Wink

no I mean when it says that shaping row is on the right side - it should be. There is basically a row missing. So you work your next (the wrong side row) in pattern, and then   work the next row (the right side) as given.
hope that makes sense (I'm in the middle of writing a essay and not really thinking in terms of knitting patterns)  Cheesy

 Shocked Woo!  I love this pattern, and have just ordered yarn and needles this morning.  I got Rowanspun 4-Ply in Jade, with a sludgy-brown for the trim [the pictures of the shade cards I could find were ALL different so I am not at all confident the trim will match the MC, but at 0.95 a ball I figured it was worth the risk] - enough yarn for the whole sweater for less than 15 including shipping.  Bargain!

It's the first time I have used anything under either a DK weight, or a 3.25mm needle so I'm expecting it to take me AGES to complete.  Plus, I'm still working on my Tubey, and my Hug shrug and about thirty other bits and bobs.  I think I have knitting ADD.  Anyhoo, looking forward to seeing more pictures, they help to keep me motivated.

I've really been wanting to do this, but that fingering weight gauge is murder!  Is the lack of posting a sign that many of you gave up? Cry
