41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cutting a hole in knitting? on: November 20, 2013 10:53:07 AM
It'll be something like a buttonhole, or look up 'steek'. You'll have to prepare the area first by stitching around it so it doesn't unravel.

Yes, the no stitch boxes mean 'there's no stitch on your needles for this box' so you just ignord them. They're there to keep the chart squared up, place holders for sts that will be added later. So yes, purl them if it's a RS row, or knit them if a WS row. The chart is too small for me to read the numbers so I can't tell if it's for all rows or just the RS rows.

I have a tendency to yarn over in random spots making a perfect hole the next time I pass over. It's frustrating when I notice it a few rows up. Then I have to tink back to get it out. I'm sure there's a way to fix it, but I haven't figured that out yet. 

Yeah, just drop the yo and the stitch that it made, the extra yarn from it will work into the nearby stitches when you wash or block it and even out.

I store my yarn in plastic grocery type bags in large tubs. I leave them in a skein or ball, so they don't usually come undone, even with several different yarns in a bag. I can't think how they would tangle together unless the loose end isn't secured to the main ball/skein/hank. I usually leave the balls or skeins in the bag as I knit or put it in my lap or next to me on the couch. If you wind center pull balls they don't roll around that much.

Repeat both rows. On the RS row do the sl 1, k1 across, on the WS rows slip the first stitch and purl the rest of them. The sl and k sts on the RS form a cushiony faux rib st that's often used on sock heels.

Good luck them allowing you to put them on them...
47  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stuck on a pattern I don't understand! Help please! on: October 13, 2013 11:02:32 AM
The increase will be knit or purl depending on where you are in the pattern on the row, or you can do either and it won't matter, because it's how you work the new stitch on the next row. You have to stay in pattern and work the sts so you keep to the ribbing. You can just knit the first and last stitches and keep them that way rather than in pattern; they'll be hidden in the seam so they won't be noticeable.

So the first row, you can kfb, k1, p2, k2 etc to the end of the row and end with k2, pfb, p1. Then the WS row would be p3, k2, p2, and will end with p2, k2, p3. And so on.
48  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! Attaching LARGE hood to a regular neck? on: October 02, 2013 06:56:39 AM
Yes, I think you'll decrease in the bottom row or two, but keep in mind you would probably make it longer too - more like a hood on a monk's cowl - for the extra room. This may be one of those things you may have to experiment with as you go to get what you want.
49  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pondering a Sweater...Any thoughts? on: October 01, 2013 06:14:03 AM
Have you done a sample yet? Not just to check gauge, but see how it'll look. Mohair is usually knit on larger needles for its weight than the merino silk, so that may be a factor. I don't think it'll be all that heavy - I've used a similar blend and it's pretty light.
50  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Italian Knitting Terms on: September 27, 2013 06:43:06 AM
I have a translation cheat sheet - 'm' is stitch, 'rov' is purl, the 'f' is probably for 'ferro' or row. So yeah, looks like 1st to 5th row.... Whatever it says for row 2 is probably what you do on al WS/even number rows.

Here's some links to knitting dictionaries in different languages, not sure which ones have Italian...
