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

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bergere de france translations anyone? on: February 24, 2007 07:16:55 PM

I've fallen in love with this sweater from Bergere De France. Here's the link for the pattern http://www.bergeredefrance.fr/document/upload/tricotheque/bloc/193056_janv_270.pdf

It reminds me a lot of Calista's Alexander McQueen Knock Off Sweater. http://calistayoo.blogspot.com/2006/02/pattern-for-mcqueen-knock-off.html
If anyone knows french and is willing to translate it would very much be appreciated. I know there are french to english dictionaries and the like available however these have I have still never been able to completely and correctly translate a french pattern. I'm sure there are many other out there who would also love to knit this sweater.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with 2 1/2 skeins cotton fine? on: January 27, 2007 01:51:02 PM
I bought a whole heap of brown sheep's cotton fine to make a cami from phildar and glampyre's orangina. I've made both but still have 2 1/2 almost 3 skeins left over. Any ideas on what I can make. I'm not into socks or shawls.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn dying on: November 13, 2006 02:44:35 PM
Ihave a yarn that is very pale blue, almost white and I do not like the colour. I thought maybe I could dye it. I've already knitted half a cardigan with it and was wondering if anyone has successfully dyed a finished garment as apposed to dying the yarn before knitting with it as I don't really feel like ripping out half the cardigan. Or would this not dye evenly? The yarn is 100% cotton 4ply.
Also are there any internet sites with some good info on dying. I wanted to try cool aid dying but we don't have cool aid here in Australia so I was wondering if jello crystals would work just as well?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a lacey shrug pattern on: October 22, 2006 11:06:00 PM
I have 3 skeins of Olympus silk bijou (approx 345 meters..slightly more if you're a yards person) in black and want to make some sort of lacey shrug to pull on over cami's etc.
I was planning on making this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43372.0 but now I'm not so sure. Anyone know of any patterns in a similar style to this? Any suggestions?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with knitty's shedir on: October 17, 2006 01:25:58 AM
Has anyone knitted this?

It's been awhile since I've had to read a chart and I'm wondering if I read this left to right or right to left?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Molly Ringwald on: October 08, 2006 12:53:37 AM

sans crochet edging and I love her! It turned out more vesty than corsety and the sleeves aren't as poofy as in the magazine but she will look cute over blouses and the like. I modifyed the pattern to knit in the round for minimal seaming. I plan to make another one further down the track and make her a little longer.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Molly Ringwald help on: September 19, 2006 10:39:08 PM
I've just started on Molly Ringwald from Knitscene fall 2006. I'm doing the waist shaping decreases but I think I'm doing it wrong. The decreases seem to disrupt the 1X3 ribbing so that when you'v get to the 2nd last decrease before you start increasing you end up with 5 knit stiches in a row. It says that inbetween the decreases you should just work the rib pattern, should I be modifying the rib pattern so that I don't end up with all these stitches together? I'm confused and I don't know if it will make the sides look weird/messy. Has anyone else knitted this and if so what did they do and so they have a picture of what they're sides look like all finished and sewn together?
