I just have a quick question about cables: Is there anything special you have to do to format them to working in the round?

If you're charting them, no. 

If you've got written directions, check to see if they're meant for flat or in the round knitting. When they're written for flat knitting, you need to reverse the stitches on the WS rows, but it's usually intuitive once you get the hang of it. Smiley

I know this might be a really silly question to ask, but i'm working on the top down raglan, and was relieved to get to the part where i do the rib for the bottom of the sweater, to find the rib i was doing is coming out wrong, i'm doing 2x2 rib. I'm not used to knitting in the round, in fact this is my first knit sweater... so is there different rules to rib for knitting in a round, because i'm puzzled at what i'm doing wrong. Can anyone else tell me if knitting in a round can make the rib stitch different???  Huh

Ribbing shouldn't be any different in the round than flat.  Just make sure that you check the stitches below what you're working on to make sure you're doing the right stitch.  One problem you could be having is you didn't have the right number of stitches for a 2x2 rib.  you need a multiple of 4 for it to work, otherwise you end up with a block of 4 knits or 4 purls.  It's easy to fix by increasing by a couple stitches right before you start the ribbing.

thanks fishie  Smiley

at least i know theres no difference than doing rib on flat knitting now, must have done something wrong somewhere with the stitches, and also will need to re-count the stitches to see if i have the right amount... after i've un-knit the rows of messy rib i've done, hopefully i can get it right this time  Grin

thanks again.

I have a sweater I was going to knit for my bf that has a great cable running down the middle with a horseshoe cable to either side.  The pattern is written for flat knitting so when you cable in the round do you just knit stitches as you see them, no purling on wrongside,knitting on rightside etc?

This sounds about right, but I remember having some difficulty the first few rows of my cable.  It was a while ago, though, and I can't remember exactly what the problem was.  I think I had to invert all the stitches on the wrong side rows in the pattern.  For example, Row 2 of my Double Waves cable had p2, k3, p2, k2, p2, k3, p2 for flat knitting.  I had to change it to k2, p3, k2, p2, k2, p3, k2 for circular knitting.  (This only applies to rows on the wrong side in the original pattern.)

Hope this helps!

So I ran out and bought one more skein of simply soft, as I already have 1 and half lying around, cast on 88 stitches on my size 8 needles (24" long) and there was no way I was going to be able to join the stitches.  I tried size 10 needles, 16" and still no luck.  Amy I doing something wrong, or should I be starting with much shorter needles and then moving up to the larger size as I increase?  Keep in mind, I was watching the Simpsons and Family Guy while trying to start this, so that could be the problem Smiley
