(photo ganked from interweaveknits.com)

I wrote down the pattern for traveling purposes and then lost the original and now I'm not sure about some of the stitches!

Does someone have the pattern that they can tell me what the left twist and right twist are? Because I looked it up and the description in Vogue Knitting seems different from the one in the book (left twist in Vogue Knitting: "With RH needle behind LH needle, skip the first st and k 2nd st tbl, insert RH needle into backs of both sts, k2tog tbl" -- but I thought in the pattern you DON'T ktog?).

I'm extra-super excited about this pattern and the yarn (Classic elite princess -- way yummier than expected) and it's driving me mildly crazy that I have to stop until I get this right!

Thanks for your help, y'all!

Right Twist

wyib, knit into 2nd st, but do not drop off needle, wyib knit into first st, slip pair off left needle tip

Left Twist

wyib, open out left-hand needle so that ws (back loops) of sts are accessible, knit into the back loop of 2nd st, but do not drop any sts off needle, wyib knit into front loop of first st, sl ip pair off needle tip.

I took that from the stitch guide under the chart.  I'm going to work now but I'll be back later if you need anything else  Grin

I'm going to make this in the future; can't wait to see yours when it is done!

Hello again! Um! So, the buttonhole row? Does it start with BO 4s? As that makes all kinds of no sense to me. That would be a really poor buttonhole. Or... zuh?

Thanks so much!

Buttonhole Row: (WS) K1-tbl, p1-tbl, yo, k2tog, work to end as est. Work 3 more rows in Twisted Rib, end with a RS row.

Buttonhole TAB: (WS) Bind off 4 sts, purl to end - 50 (54, 58) sts.

I had to read that about 3 times before it made sense to me  Roll Eyes Looks like the YO in that first row is the buttonhole and then you bind off 4 stitches to make the tab to overlap onto the collar and button the button. Then you start on the body and shoulders.

Great googly moogly, how'd I manage to miss that much?!

Thank you again! You're a real lifesaver!

I love the construction on this sweater -- but I don't yet understand why they have the bottom half grafter on -- why not just knit it all the way down? Hm. Ah, well! Yay!
