1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Completed Spiderweb Capelet on: January 04, 2005 10:35:17 AM
that is odd....
like you said, i would just repeat the spiderweb pattern until it is the length you like and then do the decreasing.

um, can't remember the yardage off-hand....but you can squeeze one out of one skein of crystal palace merino frappe...so however much is on one skein of that, plus maybe a little bit more...in case you make bigger pom-poms or knit looser than me.... my guess is that there's about 110 or so yards on the skein.

yes, make sure to get your yarn in the correct position to do each knit and purl stitch, even though you're making 4 stitches out of one stitch. and you do leave the yarn to the back when you're slipping 2 stitches purlwise.

  I assumed the YOs were yarn forwards or yarn backs to accomodate for the next stitch (yarn in front for a purl, yarn in back for a knit).  This means that for me, *row 5 is written correctly*, ie no YOs to drop. Peachass, could you clear this up for us?! 

oh sorry, i haven't checked in for a while! veronique is right, the yo's in row 4 are only to accomodate the following stitches....if you knit continental style, you don't need this info at all. and if you knit with the yarn held in yr right hand, just be sure to yarn forward and back in between each k and p stitch.
so row 4 should be knit like this: k 1, *slip 2 sts as if to purl, k2tog, pass 2 slipped sts over k st, (k, p, k, p all on the same stitch)*k the last st.
hope that clears up all the confusion.

yeah, the capelet on my site right now is  a different yarn...can't remember what yarn right now, it's a kid mohair...merino frappe is a little bit more lofty than it is. but the merino frappe is more substantial...it's what i'd use for a more wintery capelet. you can really use any lightweight fuzzy-ish yarn! i'm so glad people are making this, keep the photos coming!!

hi! i designed the spiderweb capelet in stitch 'n bitch nation. i use only one skein for the capelet, but it's so close that i was afraid that others might need a little bit extra (if their tension was a bit looser, or if you wanted to make the capelet longer or something...), and it would suck to run out of yarn when you're so close to finishing a project! so i recommended purchasing 1+ skein. anyway, glad you like the pattern, i'll check back here to answer any questions people may have about it.
