1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Phildar Pattern - I'm confused! on: October 11, 2007 02:24:45 AM
I know these Phildar patterns can be written in tricky ways so myabe I'm just not interpreting it right. Any help woul be appreciated

1st row (right side): k2 *p1,k1. Repeat from * to end of row ending with 2 k sts.
2nd row: p1, *k1, p1. Reapeat from * to end of row.

Inc on the right (keeping to pattern) every alt row * 5 sts once, 4 sts once*, reapeat from * to * 6 more times, then on foll alt row, increase 4 sts once.

This gives you 71st

I'm totally confused about multiple increasing on the right? whats the best way to do this and incorporate into the k1 p1 pattern? and the alternating rows thing is also confusing

HELP!! Undecided

I think I bought 6 balls of gusto and I have a little bit left over from knitting the small size. I'm lazy and am pretty regular wit my gauge so I don't really ever check but from my quick calculations it seemed to be a fairly close match gaugewise. You could also try caressa express which I has a similar gauge too. The gusto is super soft ridiculously warma and cosey. It is also very drapey but sheds a fair bit so you need to soak it well.

For the shopping tunic I'm going to order some 20ply from Nundle woollen mills, they are having a sale at the moment $12.80 200g hanks (120m) gauge is about 7st over 4 inches so close enough I think and they have some great colours.

WOW, thanks for all the lovely comments guys. To answer your questions they were both really very easy knits. Lots of stockinette with some decreasing, increasing.

The Equestrian blazer in knit out of Bendigo Woollen mills rustic in red tweed www.bendigowoollenmills.com.au and no it's not felted. I didn't make any mods I just knits the smallest size.

The Minidress is knit out of Bendigo Woollen mills rustic 8ply in graphite (kinds charcoal grey). I used one strand of 8pk (dk) instead of two strands of laceweight like the pattern suggested. This meant my gauge changed slightly. I knitted the smallest size and some how managed to come out with a perfect fit for a 33 1/2 inch bust. The only other mod I made was to add a few inches to the length. Even though the dress looks like it would take a long time it really didn't. I don't have a lot of time to knit, just a few hours some nights here and there. I think I managed to knock this one over in about 2 weeks. It's really not that much more work than a sweater and it's short sleeved. I also knit in the round up to the armhole decreases which made it go a lot faster.

I hope this helps, I'd love to see some more of these two patterns because when I started them I struggled to find any FO's online and they truly are awesome kntis. Goodluck

Here's my best friend cardigan knitted with cleckheaton gusto 10 and minus the bobbles. I wanted to try one of the free patterns avaialbe online before committing to buying the book because I was concerned about how the bulky yarn would look on a frame that's not supermodel thin. I have now been reassured myself and ordered the book on amazon. Can't wait to knit some more of these patterns. Details on my blog.

Hazzah! Bendigo Woollen Mills has finally gotten its act together and gotten itself a website! Soooo much more convenient than posting or faxing orders.

For any australian knitters out there struggling to find yarn subs....nundle woollen mills sells a 20ply 200g hanks. You get 120 meters for $4.50 and the colours are pretty damn good. I haven't bought the book yet but when I do I'm definately ordering from nundle http://www.nundle.info/nundle/woollenmill/index.asp

I got my yarn for this on monday and have cast on. Not much progress so far, I'll post pics when there's something substancial to show. The others are looking great, I think this is an awesome pattern, easy but very flattering.
