1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 1x1 ribbing advice? on: October 16, 2008 09:50:25 PM
thanks for the advice.  I do sometimes feel tied to patterns and I know that is totally unneccesary.  I think another problem I have is that I really do like how 1X1 looks when it is all finished, I just really hate doing it.  Its all that moving of the yarn inbetween the needles.

Thanks again!

I HATE 1x1 ribbing.  I just began yet another pair of socks, which naturally starts with an inch of ribbing.  does anyone have any advice on how to make it go quicker.  I just want to get to the actual pattern!

I think this is one of the first times I have ever been truly in aww of a wearable, and definitely one of the first times I have ever really wanted to wear something I have seen knitted.  This is so cool!!!

hmmm.  How big of a swatch are you knitting?  I know I usually get sick of them before they really show me anything useful and stop too early.  

I just checked the websitre for Cascade 220 and it says that you should get a guage of 4.5 stitches per inch on #8's.  The guage the pattern list is 4.125 stitches per inch on #5's.  To me  that would mean that you would have to go up quite a bit and that the creator of the pattern is probably a very loose knitter, bless her.  I knit with a death grip.  

Now if you plan on changing the size of the hat, you should go up a size to compensate for your guage having more stitches per inch then what the pattern asks for.

I hope something helps here.  I tend to ramble, lol

Sounds perfect to me, except usually when I slip a stitch I do it as if to purl.  But all in all, you have the right idea

Thanks For the advice craftycoug.
I found that after I knit a few more rows, the ribbing didn't seem quite as tight.  I tend to over react about sizing issues and get really paranoid lol.

Hey everyone!
I just started the Slippery Socks http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTslippery.html I am working on the slip stitch ribbing, which seems like it is going to end up being really tight.  has anyone else knit these and noticed a problem?

Also, I just finished my first christmas gift, a pair of jaywalkers for one of my rommmates.  I want a creative way to package them.  any ideas?

ooh my so called scarf would be perfect.  It is extremely sturdy when done in a bulky yarn, interesting looking, and doesn't take too long to figure out the pattern.  I believe it is only two alternating rows, although it may be four.

So you have 21 stitches on a holder.  You are going to cast on 30 with a new strand of yarn, and then, continuing with the same strand that you just used to cast on, you will knit the 21 one stitches off of the holder, then cast on 30 at the end of the row.  You will have 81 stitches, with bottom part you have already completed in the middle.

I hope this helps!!
