1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone help with a french pattern? on: May 02, 2010 01:34:49 PM
No, it's not that -  haven't knitted it yet. It's the actual pattern that doesn't seem to add up to me. That's why I was asking if the rows added up for anyone else reading the pattern extract in my original post.

No, I understand the french terms. It's the row count for this piece that I can't seem to match to the pattern. By my count there would be 70 rows in total after completing the front decreases and the sleeve decreases. Can anyone see where I've counted wrong? Or is the pattern to fault?

Thanks Cheesy

That's amazing.  What are the animals made from?

They are all made from sugarpaste, so that the kids could eat them! Cheesy

Hi! I have a large vintage knitting pattern collection myself, and have been painstakingly scanning and creating .pdf files out of them.

[Note from the mod: If you would like to contact this user about her pattern collection, please send her a PM]

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone here likes vintage knitting patterns?  
I'm an avid collector and have been trying to preserve my patterns by scanning them and making them into .pdf files.

If you would like to try them out for free, please go to my website:

If you knit any of the patterns please send me photos of the finished item. I would love to see what they look like in the flesh!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the best way to knit cardigan bands? on: November 12, 2009 10:34:02 AM
It's nothing to do with the patterns being British, I'm Scottish and the vast majority of my pattern collection use the knitted on bands. To knit on the bands, you have to pick up stitches along the edge of the two front pieces and at the neck edge on the back piece. These stitches can then be worked in garter stitch or ribbed as you like! Smiley

If you need more help on this please pm me and I can send you a baby cardigan pattern which uses this method to have a wee look at!

Thanks for the compliments!  Cheesy

Here's the recipe. I hope it turns out well!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe 
26 min | 15 min prep
36 cookies

Dry ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
tsp Cinnamon

Wet ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla

3 cups oats (not instant)
1 cups raisins (soaked in hot water for 15 mins.)

1.  Preheat oven to 350/Gas 4.
2.  Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
3.  Combine wet ingredients with a hand mixer on low.
4.  To cream, increase speed to high and beat until fluffy and the colour lightens.
5.  Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible.
6.  (Over mixing develops the gluten, making a tough cookie.) Now add the oats and raisins; stir to incorporate. 
7.  Drop 2tbsp or an ice cream scoop of mixture 2-inches apart onto baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray.
8.  Bake 11-13 minutes (on centre rack), until golden, but still moist beneath cracks on top.
9.  Remove from oven; let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
