1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with MagKnits Lucky K8 fingerless glove pattern on: December 11, 2007 05:01:29 AM
Hi All,

I've started knitting these:


and am having a bit of trouble. I got to the first picot bindoff and realized I had way too many stitches on the needles. It seems the yarnovers on the left side of the thumb area are correct, but the ones on the right side went up in a straight line rather than fanning out, slanting to the right like they should, resulting in there being too many stitches to the left of the lace pattern. The instructions say to YO before the marker on the RS, but for whatever reason it screwed up the pattern. What could I be doing wrong? Any tips? I wasn't able to find pattern errata anywhere. Thanks!

I'm headed to Scottsdale April 11-18 to visit family, and wondered if there were any good craft shows, arts events, etc. worth checking out. I already checked the City of Scottsdale webpage, and found the gallery walk and Sunday arts market info. Anything in Phoenix? Thanks!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Creating my own hat pattern with zig-zag eyelet - help needed on: January 06, 2007 05:29:43 AM
Hi all,

I'm taking the bold step of trying my own pattern. I created a lace-type hat for my daughter not too long ago (from a pattern on knitty.com but using a sock yarn and size 3 dpns) and now I want to do a similar hat but with a different stitch pattern. I've got instructions for a zig-zag eyelet stitch that consists of four eyelets slanted left and four slanted right; it's an 11-stitch, 12-row repeat.

I am, however, having a heck of a time figuring out how to do the decreases at the crown of the hat. With those numbers, I think I need to decrease by 88 stitches over 24 rows (which equals approximately 2.5") to get to the top of the hat. The initial cast-on is going to be 121 stitches for a hat approximately 18" in diameter.

How do I figure out how to do the decrease and not completely jumble the pattern? I want to get it drawn out on graph paper before I get started. Am I in over my head? Am I making any sense at all? Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Baby's First Tattoo Sweater on: April 21, 2006 10:12:12 AM
OK, I've read the other posts on this, and my question/problem is slightly different. I've finished the front pieces, and the instructions say for the neck edge to decrease one stitch every row for ten rows (after you get to the required length). I found that I only had about seven rows before I was down to one stitch. I counted rows to make sure the back and front pieces were the same length before the shaping began, but I'm a bit worried things aren't going to match up.

I will mention that I am a pretty new knitter... I am just keeping my fingers crossed that this turns out, but if anyone has any experience with the pattern I'd love some pointers. Thanks!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / tubular cast-on for knitting in the round on: February 14, 2006 06:16:33 PM
I am VERY new to knitting, but have a pattern for a great brioche hat that I want to knit. I'm very confused about the tubular cast-on method-- I've found a couple of tutorials (here and elsewhere) that use a piece of scrap yarn for the cast-on. The pattern I have doesn't use that-- it's a cast-on on circular needles using two colors (a dark and a light) that make up the hat.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. The pattern is from "Weekend Knitting" by Melanie Falick, if anyone has done it or is familiar with the pattern.
