1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Candle Flames Cloth Help!!!! on: April 19, 2012 03:54:17 PM
I found the problem!

In the written pattern on row 4 it says sl1, k1, (.....)

It should be sl1, k3. I end up with 48 sts then!

Thanks for your help again. Sometimes it takes someone else pointing things out for you to see the elephant in the room! Maybe I should contact the designer....

I have the harmony wood and I absofreakinglutely love them! I also want the nickle. They are  nothing like bamboo. I haven't had any of that fear that they are going to break. Not to mention, I get tons of complements on how cool they look! Wink

They have a sample pack that you can buy for around $20. You might want to try that. Either way, I'm certain you'll be happy with whichever you buy!

I too agree with everyone!

It looks great! You should have seen the first thing I ever knitted. It ended up like a big triangle because of the "looseness" of that first stitch. The stitch was extremely floppy, and I was knitting into the stitch below it (that floppy bit at the end). Consequently, I was adding stitches.

I like to slip my first stitch (just go into the stitch like you are going to knit it, but instead of knitting it, pass it onto the right needle and knit into the second stitch). It makes most edges look very uniform and things don't seem as wonky.

Keep going! You should be proud of your swatch!

Thanks for your help!  Smiley

If I count up the sts for row 3 it adds up to 48 sts

When I get to row 4 though, it only adds up to 46 sts no matter which way I cut the math. When I end with the 2 edge sts, I'm left with 2 extra sts at the end.  Huh

I'm having the time of my life trying to read this chart and the written directions. I figured combining both would help. I am not giving up!

Hi Guys!

I am having a crazy time trying to knit this dishcloth. It is a beautiful pattern.
Here is the ravelry link:


-Does the stitch count vary each row?

-When I get to the end of row 4, I have 2 left over stitches. What's up with that? Smiley

I'm a self-taught knitter and I'm trying to expand my knowledge, so please be gentle Friends.

Thanks in advance for any help!
