 :)Well done.  I love both jumpers. Did you follow a pattern? Please can you share your pattern. If you followed the top down jumper with pattern, how did you get the that lovely neckline on the striped jumper.

I knitted the size 42-44 in order to accommodate my protruding stomach, but it is still very tight around that area.  If I add   2 small darts (1.5 - 2 inches long)I should get a better fit. Can anyone suggest how I go about adding these two darts?

Will I have to undo what I have done and start again, knitting the front and back separately.Then start the first set of darts just after the first set of  increase stitches.   How do add the short rows, and maintain the waist shaping in this pattern?

Is this do-able.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Short Rows on: May 01, 2006 02:59:23 PM
I need to add some short rows to a top I am knitting.  Tried to teach myself from the Knitty article but cannot seem to get it right. There are holes and the knitting is not flat. 

Row 1:  Right side facing knit up to the last 3 stitches.  Insert right-hand needle into the front of the next stitch (purlwise) and slip onto the right-hand needle.
3. Bring yarn to front of work, then slip stitch back to left needle.   4. Turn work, bring yarn to front.

Row 2: wrong side facing purl to last 3 stitches or to end of row ( not sure what to do on this row)

Can anyone recommend a book with pictures of short rows with clear written instructions.

Thanks Artisokka,

I am not good at reading patterns.

Can anyone help me with this knitting pattern, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUESpring05/PATTsoleil.html? As you can see the V neck is very deep I would like to adjust it.  On the Soleil-Along ((http://soleilalong.blogspot.com/) in June last year information was given on how how to raise the neckline.

Instructions from designer - Yes, you skip the divide for neckline section, go straight to the divide back and front armholes part, and put all of the front stitches on one holder. After the back is finished, you put all the front stitches back on the needle and work just the armhole shaping, exactly the same as the back, then divide for the neck at whatever height you want.

Do I put 116 stitches on the stitch holder for the front and continue to work the back on the other 116 stitches?
I cannot figure out how to work the back from these instructions.

Divide Back and Front for Armholes
Next Row: P to marker and place 42[46, 51, 55, 59] sts just worked on a holder or waste yarn, BO next 7[9, 9, 10, 10] sts, p to marker, turn. Place rem 42[46, 51, 55, 59] front sts on another holder or waste yarn.
My problem is how do I knit the back with instructions that refer

Was the original cup and saucer white and you transformed it by drawing a cherry blossom ?  I would like to try out this craft. Can you do a tutorial and recommend any books and websites?
