1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rolling stockinette Q on: September 15, 2008 06:30:36 AM
I'm knitting a cardigan (Mrs. Darcy to be specific).  The bottom of the sweater is basically about 20 rows of stockinette followed by about 20 rows of twisted rib, then switches back to stockinette for the rest of the sweater.

I'm noticing that the first 20 rows of stockinette along the bottom of the sweater are curling up.  I know that stockinette does this, but I didn't notice it happening for any of the other people that knitted Mrs. Darcy.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is it fixable by blocking at this point?  Since it's a cardigan, I made it larger so I don't think the FO will stretch enough around my hips to prevent curling up.  Should I start over and modify the pattern somehow?  I don't want to wear it that way, and I've got a LOT more to knit!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ever heard of hobo gloves? on: January 07, 2008 09:19:34 PM
My boyfriend used to have a pair of mittens that he called his "hobo gloves" and he misses them dearly.  They were gloves with individual fingers that stopped halfway up.  Then there was this flap, like the top of a mitten, that came over the exposed fingers and buttoned closed.
EDIT:  Here is a picture of what I mean (girl version)

Does anyone know of a pattern that's anything remotely close to this?  He's been asking me to try and knit something up, and I'm thinking it would be a perfect v-day present if I can pull it off.

I got the Anthropologie catalog in the mail the other day, and the whole thing was knitwear.  The Twinkle Shopping Tunic is in it (which I think someone already mentioned) as well as the Karate Sweater.  I wonder how many other things in there we can make?  I was drooling over it!

Oh, you should be able to do this in the round no problem.  

row 1: P2, K9, P2
row 2 is your cable row, just like it's written
row 3: P2, K9, P2
row 4: P2, K9, P2

and then repeat those 4 rows.  Once you get it going, you're going to have 3 identical rows followed by your cable row, and then just repeat.

A purl stitch is just a knit stitch being looked at from the other side of the fabric.  I hope this helps, and more importantly I hope it's right!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How would you knit this hat? (Yellow beret-esque) on: August 04, 2007 05:45:08 AM
The Purl Bee Beret pattern would help you with the decreases: http://www.purlbee.com/beret-purl/
You could knit the top ribbed part with larger needles and/or do a 3x1 rib up there, so that it doesn't pull in as much as the brim.  Because it doesn't look like there's too much of a difference between the brim and the top part, yet it's still a beret type of hat.  The top's just not as floppy.

I'm still going to do this...the new Guitar Hero came out on Tuesday which has taken over time normally used for knitting.  I'm about halfway done with the Ribbed Lace Bolero, and I really want to wear it this summer...as soon as I'm done with that, I'll cast on!
