1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help reading charts. on: February 13, 2013 08:41:02 AM
OK; so what I was doing was to YO, Knit one stitch and then the decrease, but what I should have done was YO, work decrease

I guess I was adding an extra knit stitch into the equation?

If that is correct I think the light bulb came on.  Thanks!

Ok, I'll try to unconfuse myself enough to explain my problem.  I understand that in a lace pattern there should be an increase (YO) for each decrease (K2TOG or SSK), but where I get confused is that they occur over three stitches/loops, but the chart only shows this over two squares.  When I try to stitch up the pattern the open spaces don't end up where they are supposed to be.  This is the chart I am trying to work in repeats long enough for a scarf.

I'm very new to knitting, just got the hand of knit and purl.  Can anyone recommend any online resources for help and inspiration to keep things interesting while learning.

Try this link http://www.ravelry.com/projects/bergdale13/shawler-shawl-with-sleeves

Its the same pattern the previous reply suggested, but this person used a different yarn, which I think makes it look "not so cozy".  Maybe bf will approve.  Smiley

It does look like the problem is a tight beginning chain, but a good way to find out would be to count the number of stitches in the first row and the last row completed to see if they match up.  The first scarf I ever made was the incredible expanding scarf because I kept crocheting extra stitches at the end of each row and it took me forever to figure it out.  You do chain one at the begging of each new row and it does not count as a stitch and then you would sc into the last stitch of the previous row.  If you think you are crocheting extra stitches at the beginning or end of each row you can use stitch markers to mark those stitches as you make them it will help to visualize where that stitch is.  Also blocking the blanket squares before you sew them together will help with the shaping.

I recently made this head wrap http://4tdesignscrochetheadwrappattern.blogspot.com/2012/10/free-crochet-headwrap-pattern_6.html
It is a pretty simple pattern, but the instructions are not all that clear.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for VW crochet chart. on: December 09, 2012 07:41:20 AM
I am looking for a Volkswagen emblem (the V and W inside the circle) tapestry crochet chart.  Or if you some suggestions to chart it myself, it just seems mind boggling when I think about it.
