Hi there,

I feel so stupid, but I really could need help from someone who has already knitted Lucy In The Sky.

Remember, you knit the cardigan from bottom up. You add on the arms, and then you start with the raglan and neck decreases. You have 4 stitch markers, which mark the beginning and end of each arm.

You continue to do the raglan and neck decreases until you have 9 stitches left before the first marker (beginning of first arm).

Clear until that.

But then she sais, stop working raglan decreases on the first and last marker. But continue to do neck decreases 4 times or until raglan fits.

Does that mean, that you continue to do raglan decreases on the 2nd and 3rd marker, but not on the 1st and 4th. I have done that, and it looks wrong. :-( When you do that, you dont have the "fake seaming line" on the arms...

I dont understand it. I read over the instructions at least a dozen times.

Can someone help me please?

Thank you so much!

Did you contact cosmic pluto? She has an "e-mail me" button at the top of her blog. Smiley http://www.cosmicpluto.com/blog/

I'm not sure about your question as I haven't quite made it there. I have tried emailing her about my question but haven't heard back, but then again it's only been a few hours. Having said that, I am anxious to get back to this cardigan so I'm hoping perhaps you might be able to help me.

I've c/o 169 stitches and done the seed stitch rows. I'm preparing to start my first row on the diamond pattern but as the first and last 6 sts are in seed st, that leaves me with 157 sts to work with a chart that only has 25 sts. I'm going to wind up with 7 extra sts, aren't I? Perhaps I'm not reading the chart correctly.

Might you be able to steer me in the right direction? Perhaps it's the Pattern Repeat area that's throwing me. I wasn't sure why that was highlighted.

Hi MarIce,

Did she reply?

You should have no rest stitches. You knit the first 13 stitches once, and then repeat the second 12 stitches until the end.

You have probably tried it by now and figured it out. :-D

I know this thread is really old, but I have the same question about which decreases to discontinue. Does anyone know? I've searched all over Ravelry and haven't found anything about this. Apparently, it is obvious to most people Smiley
