I agree....a bag or a small purse even.

OK, I got a reply back from the email I wrote to the creater of the Eris pattern

She said:-
Hi there,

That would be a slip with the yarn on the WS of the work.  (So if you're on a WS row, you will be bringing the yarn to the front of your work.)


I think I'll have to go back and look at the pattern again to see if it's on the right or wrong side on the work. (Think I'm working on the wrong side in this row though)

Thanks Brit0602,

I've cut and pasted my question from here into an email and sent it to her.

I'll fill you all in on the response as it may help someone else knitting up Eris in the future.

Maybe we need more information, Wizardessssss. Is there a link to the pattern or a picture of it so we can help you figure it out?

Since the pattern is not a freebie, I'm not sure if I'm permitted to show the pattern or post photos here.

I can provide a link to a photo of it though.

This page has a couple of different views

Pssst :::- or Google 'eris collar' and click on images (under Google logo). The photos are posted on private blogs and such so there's no way I'd physically post them here.

Hope this helps.

If you've got enough of it, I'd try a small swatch. Doesn't have to be big, say 10sts x 10sts.

Most wool felts (depends on how it's treated and how you use it).
But all wool blends will behave differently. A blend of angora and wool would felt. It really depends on what it's blended with.

Simple tip to remember is 'if it's man-made, it probably won't felt.'

A cape would be fantastic, it would take ages but if you would get the use out of it, I think it would be a fabulous long-term project.

I don't know of any cape patterns but you could come up with your own by modifying a cardigan's length and adding a hood.

Or someone else may know where to find one, I'd sure be interested in seeing it.

Thanks soozeq, anyone else got an opinion?

(I'm thinking I should have made this into a poll  Huh )

Those look so comfy!

Got a pattern for them?
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Slip stitch question on: September 02, 2006 11:34:20 AM
I'm currently working on Eris and have come across something I'm not sure of.

Chart and legend read as
Purl, purl, slip one knitwise, purl purl.

My question is should it be
purl, purl, bring yarn to back, slip one knitwise, bring yarn to front, purl, purl.


purl, purl, slip leaving yarn in front, purl, purl.

Thanks in advance
