i was at h&m the other day and saw a sweater that looked very familiar, i think it was a knockoff of the twiggy sweater. it had mini bobbles down the middle. anyone else seen it?

Candicane, love your fo's!! I started on the groovy dress this week. Finished the sleeves, was 8 rows into the body and realized I'll have to frog (shouldn't have been watching the Office while knitting) due to dropped stitches and an extra one somewhere. One thing I'm not 100% sure about, Candicane might have been different with the small size, but with the medium, it says cont in established Lattice Cable pattern. This seems simple enough but it's confusing me how they warn with size M and L will not match at side seams. So does that mean established is throwing in the Purl 0(1, 2) in all the rounds as in round 1 of the body? I'm easily confused/confusing as you can see.

I think you are correct use the extra purl sts that you did on row 1 on all the rows of the lattice cable. It would have been helpful if they put that on the same page as the cable instructions just as a reminder. If you own the book, I would pencil it in so you don't forget.

Thanks for the compliments!

But of course. It wasn't making sense earlier because I dropped a stitch. It's working out lovely now though I had to tink back four rows because I didn't realize the lattice cable pattern was typed out for 24 rows. I was doing 1-10 over again until I realized. I'm really embarrassing myself now aren't I.

Thanks, Erika, I did see your photo earlier -- very inspiring!  I liked the use of the black with just a little accent.  I would love to see other photos as well.  I'm sure you are right about the misprint.  The annoying thing is that since we can't get the right yarn locally, my knitting circle pal and I will have to purchase it online, but with that stupid misprint we have no idea how much to get.

On the whole it seems to me that the Twinkle knitting instructions appear to overestimate yarn quantities anyway, but 8,000 yards is ... well, that must be wrong!

Thanks again.  If anyone has any suggestions about the approximate yardage needed for the Chelsea sweater, please let me know.  The thing about that weird yardage is that they're NOT talking about the Cruise -- they're specifically talking about a super bulky yarn substitute!  So I'm really stumped.

Well I'm not sure if you did this yet or anything, but on the errata it says:
 " 1560 yds of any DK weight yarn in the color of your choice"

Hey all!  I'm a relatively new self-taught knitter.  I'm trying to make my first sweater, the evening shell.  ANd it's been going pretty well so far, but I just have a question about the pattern.  In the armhole and neck shaping it reads:  "BO 2 sts, work seed st across next 5 (6,7) sts, turn."  What does the "turn" part mean?  It's probably really simple, I'm just not sure.

Turn your piece as if you're at the end of the row; you may or may not be.

Wait sorry, I'm still confused.  I'm knitting on circulars and I don't really turn it at all.
« Reply #699 on: January 09, 2008 08:27:13 AM »

That's okay. Turn anyway as if you were on circs. Work back and the next direction is probably to turn again so you're going the same direction as before. Sounds like you're doing short rows for shaping.
