I am attemting my first pattern out of SnBN...and it's the Henry Rollins doll. I'm making it for a Christmas present for someone...so I don't want to mess up!

I made the body just fine, but now I've come to the arm:

"Working in St st, inc 1 st at each edge of EOR 2 times, then every foll 4th row 3 times.

Work even in St st for 15 rows.

Change to black yarn.

Work even in St st for 2 rows.

BO"


Here's the dilemma I have:

What the hell does EOR stand for? That entire row and the one following has me more than confused.

Also, it says do two rows and then bind off after switching to black, and the doll in SnBN looks like it have quite a bit more than two rows black on the top of the arm.

I'm just very confused.

Has anyone else made it?

No, but I'm guessing it's every other row?

End Of Row, isn't it?  I'm not familiar with the pattern, but it's a common way to do increases.

I'm making a bunch of these dolls right now for Xmas presents and it's definitely Every Other Row. I haven't done the Henry doll specifically, but I think the two rows of black should also be okay once you attach the arms to the body. You could also just switch to black earlier if you want more sleeve.

Still, it's quite the confusing stitch. I'll try again tomorrow and get back with you! Thanks for all of your help!

You know, I looked at the pattern again (I'm doing another Joan Jett style to resemble a friend) and I think there is a mistake in the arm for the Henry doll. There's gotta be more than those two rows of black and you'd think you'd have to decrease more before binding off, no? I've found these doll patterns pretty muddy throughout -- you may have to experiment a bit before completing the finished arm. At least the weirdness lies at the end of the arm, not the beginning, so you can always unravel a few rows if it looks wrong.

Good luck!

Yeah, I know! I was going to just go ahead and knit more than I should. Patterns were meant to be broken!  Cheesy

Not being helpful at all but....
I just recently got the Stitch n Bitch book.  I just learned how to knit about 3 weeks ago.  I have yet to actually finish a project.  I thought I would put off buying the Nation book until I actually finished something.  Now that I know there's a Henry Rollins doll in it, I must get it now!!!
Please post pics when you're done.  I'd love to see it!

I did every other row. He turned out ok but he is a bit overweight. I stuffed him good.
