For the K2tog and k2togtbl stitches instead you will P2tog and P2tog tbl, P2tog where you are instructed to K2tog etc.  Instead of doing a M1, I did a M1P, basically instead of lifting the bar between the stitches from back to front, I lifted it from front to back w/the left needle and then P tbl:d the stitch.
Can I get a bit of advice folks. I am an English knitter, so want to check I have the right M1 and M1P when knitting in the round...
which of these are the M1 and M1P you refer to....

Also...if knitting s/m bodice (high) in the round...would row 2 (ws) change to...21purl, 1knit 4purl 1knit 11purl 20knit etc

Many thanks for this...as soon as I know this I can get going!!!!!!!

I'd really appreciate some advice, if anyone has the time. Knitting this in the round. So, I have (on ws row , changed knits to purls etc where appropriate.

BUT I have a problem.  One half of sweater... Bodice (front half)...looks fantastic...other half of knitting ie/ bodice (back half) looks great EXCEPT for cabled areas. They didn't look crisp/right. So I looked at reverse (RS) of Bodice (back) and the cables inside were perfect. Am I doing something stupid?Huh? How on earth are the cables appearing on the wrong side on one half of sweater"!!???

I thought with knitting in the round it would only be the instructions in pink (ws rows) that I changed...I didn't think I had to change the cables on one half of sweater in any way (on RS rows) am I wrong?Huh Please help as I am getting frustrated  Smiley

Is it wrong to always work charts from right to left if working in round? I can't see this making a difference on one side. Whatever it is must be cable-specific....ie/ all I can think of is I should be swapping yarn to front instead of back in some cables....rather than always doing them as they would be on straight needles?Huh.

Hi Murdo,

It is odd that suddenly the problem occurs at the half way and only one the back..
It is right to read the chart from right to left for all the rows if you are knitting in round.
Can you post a picture of the problem area? I think I can help you better if I can see the problem. =)

Well...I think I have been particularly silly...as front and back identical I had two charts to mark off....but I got complacent and did it in my head.   

I "think" I knitted front (F) fine for 2 non-rib/patten chart rows. (each row is do pattern once for front bodice THEN repeat for back bodice(B)
so F1,B1 then F2,B2 etc. I think I then "jumped a row on the back section of a bodice...so went

F3, B4 then F4, B5 then F5, B6....so the front was looking fine but back out of sync. This taught me that marking off progress in two identical charts in my head is not always a good idea. Redone it and looking fabulous....up to row 9 of pattern now.!!!!!!

Thank you all for being so kind at trying to help

hi everyone,

I'm a latecomer to this knitalong... just started Calista's sweater a few days ago. I'm using KnitPicks Swish DK- a washable (yay!!!) merino wool-- in cinnamon. I'm making the sweater in the round, and so far, so good... although I did get a bit too absorbed in Top Chef last night and made a mistake or two that I had to fix!  Tongue
