Sprung,

I was thinking of starting this but was scared about the YO bit, so thank you Sprung for your fab explanation! If I'd know if was that easy I'd have started it this morning!! Helen

crnaofca, I'm glad that you were able to find out what YO means in your language!

Helenmay, I'm glad my explanation helped you.  It really is so easy to do raglan with yarnovers...I want to make all of my knitted garments this way.  No seaming, and hardly any measuring -- I love it!

Question - Since i love this pattern and it is so easy - anyone have any idea if i wanted to convert it to a baby size version ( being 6 months prego I am looking for fun, easy baby things to knit ) - I am not good enough at calculations to figure out how to make the switch from Full adult size to baby size - Any ideas? I bet a baby size one would knit up in just a few hours.....:-) My kind of knitting  Grin

That's a good thought, many people have made them for their daughters or granddaughters. You could use thin baby sport yarn and smaller needles and follow the pattern for number of stitches and rows. If you have some baby clothes already, especially 6 mo - 1 year size, measure from the neck to the bottom of the armhole for that measurement, and across the back just under the sleeve, then make yours the same size. It might take a few tries to experiment and get the sizing right, but for baby clothes, they keep growing anyway, so a little larger wouldn't hurt. Wink

Ahhhh! So I was becoming adventurous (and kinda bored with knitting the Ribbed For Her Pleasure Scarf) and decided that this would be my first knitted clothing item. Well I got past the ribbing part and my boyfriend's kitty kinda got to it, boo, so I frogged it and started it with the seed stitch instead. I got past that part but then, oh man! Ha ha the yarn overs got me, I totally ended up with not enough stitches to finish the second row on. I started to panic and came on over to Craftster, because it and it's members are my heroes when it comes to crafty problems. Boy I'm glad I did that, because I found Sprung's explanation of the yarn overs. THANK YOU Sprung! I am printing it out right now! This prevented me from frogging it again... Phew!

Okay, I guess that's enough of my short Capelet dilemma story.

But thank you everyone for your great explanations and input, it really is helping me out as a newbie knitter! I'll post it when I finish, hopefully...

I know this is probably a silly question, but for a minute I got a bit confused.. You write the gauge is 12 sts and 16 rows over 4". Does that mean that you counted 12 sts on the needle, and that 16 rows with this yarn produced 4"? Huh I usually don't have any doubts about gauge, but I guess it's just one of those days... Roll Eyes

Also, I'm guessing that the needle you used is 7 mm.?

That's right, the gauge can also be read as 3sts and 4 rows per inch.
