i've been contemplating this for quite some time, any yarn suggestions?

On the yahoo group knitalong, Anne has posted a database of all the different yarns that people are using.  Alot of people seem to be using Cotton/Silk blends.

Moving right along.  Have about 2 1/2" done of the main body portion after a long round trip train ride this weekend.  This project is going a bit faster than I thought it would.  I guess because I'm used to knitting on size 4's w/ kidsilk.  This is the first time knitting with beads also.  They don't seem to be posing too much of a problem, but I hate having to move them down all the time.

Thanks Sarah Nicole for giving me a heads up about this knit-along!

Just started my Butterfly about 1 1/2 weeks ago and just finished my first lace frill last night.  I think that I have decided to leave out the second frill.  When folding my first one over itself, it looks like it will be a little too thick looking doubled, even in the kidsilk.

Here is the post I wrote on the Lucky KAL for those of you that can't find it or aren't involved.  Debbie still hasn't posted this correction yet - hope this helps!

Sleeve correction
General Posted by melissa @ 20:46
Hey guys,

Finally got around to doing the correction on the sleeve muscle tonight.  Got a forwarded email from Debbie last night with a desperate plea from one of you guys that you had been checking the knithappens.com site and had yet to see any corrections posted. 

Well, I finally got my lazy butt moving and did all the glorious math tonight.  I know alot of you are finished, but to those who haven't hit the sleeves yet - this is for you......(Debbie should be posting this soon, but just in case it takes her a little while)


Pattern should say:

With smaller needles, CO 86(88, 89, 93, 97) sts.

Work 6 rows 1x1 rib.

Change to larger needles and working in clover lace patt, dec 1 st at each edge of every 25th(25th, 32nd, 32nd, 32nd) row 2( 2, 4, 4, 4) times, then every 26th( 26th, 0, 0, 0) row 3( 3, 0, 0, 0) times 76( 78, 81, 85, 89) sts.

Work even in pattern until piece measures 17 from beg.

Shape raglan cap:

BO 7 sts at beg of next 2 rows.

Dec 1 st at each edge of every 4th row 9(10, 14, 9, 9) times, then every 6th( 6th, 0, 6th, 6th) row 2( 2, 0, 4, 6) times.  BO remaining sts.

New final measurements for sleeve cuff opening: 13 (13 , 13 , 14, 15)

New final measurements for muscle: 11 (12, 12 , 13, 13 )

Hope this helps!

Good job Piyolet!  It's very interesting to see how my pattern has taken on a life of it's own with each knitter's interpretations!  It's beautiful!  Also, thanks for the complement on why you bought the book!  Knit on!

For those brave souls that are tackling this sweater, I have a few questions. I haven't exactly started knitting this, just checking my gauge so far.

1. In the directions for the "BACK", after casting on and working 4 rows for the rib, row 5 is P. Then it says to work 2 rows in clover lace. Wait a second. Does that mean the k row + P row ONLY?

2. The next part, assuming that it starts at Row 3 of the clover pattern, it says to decrease 2 sts, one at each end. When it says to dec every foll 9th row, is that Row 3+9 = 12? Then we keep working on the clover pattern and decrease now on the actual 9th row of the pattern? Then the next dec will be row 6 of the pattern? AAAAHhh.... Or does it mean to work the decreases on every Row 9 of the clover pattern?

Can someone help me decipher? Am I making this too complicated?


#1:  Yes, that means you are knitting 1 row and purling 1 row - this is the 1st two rows of the pattern, then you just keep continuing row3, 4, etc

#2:  Yes, your 1st decrease happens on row 12, then every 9th row after that.  It does not correspond w/ any particular row in the pattern.

Hope that helps!  If you're still confused, let me know!  I'll try to help anyway I can!

Yes, this sweater tends to come out kinda large, especially since they changed the sizing from my original pattern.  My guage also changed a bit from my guage swatch to the actual sweater.  My suggestion would be to make a larger gauge swatch (6x6) than usual and make sure you let it rest before blocking it.  Then after blocking, let it rest a little bit longer so all the stitches settle into their places.

I intended the Medium to be a chest size 36, but they make this the size Small instead.  Last time I checked, a size small has a size 34 chest, not 36!  I wish I would have done the grading by myself instead of lettting the pattern editors get to it!

And again, because this is a wrap style, don't be afraid to make it a little smaller.  The adjustable ties make it more forgiving.
