1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please help me name this fluffy, fuzzy, funny looking yarn on: May 19, 2019 01:07:17 PM
If it is eyelash, use a much larger hook. Like an L or M and an open stitch.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: help! how do I "work even pat" when pattern decreases? on: January 23, 2018 11:45:41 AM
Work even means no incs or decs; the decreases in the lace pattern don't count because the increases offset them, the stitch count may change every row and at the end of the pattern repeat rows, you will have the amount of stitches.

There is no 'wrong' way, and there's more than 2 ways to knit.

Yes, go to www.knittinghelp.com and look at the videos for continental knitting, or you can find many on youtube as well.

Yes, when you knit garter stitch, you're knitting every stitch, so just do it the same way.

It depends on if the pattern is charted. There's also several places online, including here at craftster - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129918.0 - that offern translations of knitting terms.

A regular BO should be fine, just don't make it too tight. How many sts is it?

You're shaping the neck which is lower in front than in the back and is a bit wider, so you will be making more rows and end up at 8" before you begin the shoulder shaping. Follow the instructions as given and it will make sense when you get there.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with rough, itchy yarn? on: October 23, 2015 09:02:28 AM
Usually one washes and dries it after it's knit up, it's a pain to do it beforehand. The itchiness may be a reaction to the 'sizing' that is sometimes put on yarn, just like clothes and needs to be washed out. I've never had an itchy acrylic wouldn't expect to from the yarns sold at Walmart which I've used.  Most people advise a gentle cycle and low dryer heat, but I just put acrylic knits in the regular wash (with something light, like t shirts or other knits) and a regular dryer setting. But I do check the dryer after 20 minutes or so and take it out as soon as it's dry. Too much heat can make it limp. You could make blankets with it, double stranded on huge needles will use it up faster. It can also be used for a cardigan or jacket, something worn over other clothes. Try washing and drying that hat again and see how it feels then.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ribbing not working with number of stitches required in pattern... Advice please on: July 24, 2015 07:59:40 AM
Knitting in the round when you have a number of stitches that won't divide by the rib pattern, dec or inc so that they'll fit. For a cast on, yes just CO the right number, then you may want to add or take away more at some point if the ribbing is not continued all the way up.
