okay, officially i am stuck on this one for a bit.  i'm still not happy with how my "bobbles" turned out, because knitting fbfb between the next stitch & last stitch worked is confusing me.  i thought i had it, but the base of mine looks nothing like the photo, so i'm going to rip back (again!) and try to figure it out.  does anyone have any ideas on this stitch?  i was making mine by moving the last stitch worked back to the left needle, then moving the working yarn back and forth between the needles to reduce the bulk as i made the stitches, but it ends up sitting to the side of the next stitch & not neatly in the middle (i tried getting a photo, but they all came out blurry). it's hard to explain, but it definitely doesn't look right.

i'm gonna knock out a couple of small projects in the meantime.  but (best ah-nold voice) I VILL BE BAHCK!

i bought some rowan felted tweed in color 147 - dragon for one of these a few weeks ago, and i've been searching for size 2 16-inch circulars (that are not expensive-as-heck addi stumpos) since i always need to size down, but i think i'm just going to give in and go dpn all the way and go ahead and get started. =]

i've been looking around for some of these, so i'll help you out while i have another go round of trying to pick one to make.  in no particular order:

view a:


i like this one with the stand-up collar:

this one is really cute, especially the top left view:

simplicity 4109 - built by wendy jacket, the cropped view:

view a or b (which look exactly the same to me) without the lace sticking out underneath.  or with.

this one's cute...maybe not in orange fur (at least not for me)

or this one, the last view in denim:

denim view

and lastly, the view on the girl on the right in the main photo

that's all i got for now.   Grin

hm, perhaps it was my short hand that was confusing.. probably should have been written [(kf/b) 2times, m1] rep around.

could just be the way i read it, too, because i thought maybe that's what you meant, but kept reading "kfb 2 times" as "kfbfb"  cause i'm special like that, or something. Grin either way, it totally makes sense now.

i haven't made the bag yet, but i sat at work yesterday trying to figure out the same thing!  (this is for the first shorter bag)

for the increases from 88 sts to 220sts, i think i'm going to do
round: [(kf/b 2 times), m1]* rep around.
(that is, knit 1 front+back two times, make 1).

doesn't that increase by 4 stitches for each 1 stitch, instead of 2.5?  my theory was to *kfb,kfbf, rep from * across, reasoning that if i double the number of stitches by kfb in every stitch, that's 176, plus increasing an additional stitch on one-half of the total stitches (44) for a grand total of 220 all around.
