1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What are the effects of k1tbl and k1b? on: December 04, 2010 12:15:21 PM
Hey everyone,
as i recently rediscovered knitting for me, I've come across some new methods, I haven't worked with so far.
Namely, k1tbl (knit one through back loop) and k1b (knit one below).
I wonder, what are the effects of those stitches in comparison to a normal knit stitch?
Regarding the k1b, I found out through google, that it makes the stitch thicker and softer. Is that correct?
But, what about the k1tbl? Does anyone know? Please help!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What are your favourite stitches? on: November 19, 2010 01:46:21 PM
Hello eager knitters!
I'm semi-new to knitting. I mean, i learnt the basics years ago, but at the moment, I'm starting to get deeper into things. And i'm extremely curious about all the textures that you can create using different stitches. Even very easy ones like seed stitch.
So I was wondering, what are your favourite stitches? Smiley

Hey sweet craftsters,
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Aldrich metric pattern cutting PROBLEM on: July 23, 2010 11:14:24 AM
Hi everybody,
i just got the book metric pattern cutting for womens wear by winifred aldrich. at first sight it looks like it could become my bible (no offence!).
but when i looked at the part where she explains how to make blocks from your individual measurements, i got confused, cos for the waist-to-hip-measurement she just goes back to the standard measurements that are based on the bust measures.
Being taller than average (176cm/510) and extremely pear shaped (76cm waist, 108 cm hip), the standard measurements for waist to hip doesnt match at all with my body.
Maybe someone here is more familiar with pattern drafting than me? Maybe someone even has the same problem?
I just dont know, if i could just draft the pattern with my measures? or would i have to adjust the pattern in other areas, too?

Please help! Wink I so want to get started with drafting!
