Please, please, no more political topics!
Yes, I know it is an open forum and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I come on this forum for a breath of fresh air and to relax. I can't wait to get my email in the morning to read with my coffee. But I notice there are more and more political topics.

Yes, I know I don't have to open them (sometimes the title tricks me) and I don't, but the constant baiting of others on here is not good.

I love these place - I can't tell you many times I have been helped and hopefully helped others. It's a joy.

Please, let's see more grandchildren, pets, flowers - anything to make us smile.

No one has to respond to me; I just had to vent.

Thank you.

Simple red baby cardigan
I used 'Waterwheel 890' as a base for this. I used the same pattern stitch as in a lemon cardigan that I posted a few weeks age. In case anyone who did not see it and would like to try it, the pattern stitch is the easiest thing you could do - it's mostly stocking stitch over a 12 row repeat. For example on my right front excluding the front band I had 25 stitches to pattern and it went like this:-
ROW 1 KNIT
ROW 2 PURL
ROW 3 K3, SLIP 1 KW, TO LAST STITCH, K1
ROW 4 P1, SLIP 1 PW, PURL 3TO END
ROW 5 KNIT
ROW 6 PURL
ROW 7 KNIT
ROW 8 PURL
ROW 9 K1, SLIP 1 KW, K3, TO END
ROW 10 P3, SLIP 1 PW, TO LAST ST, P1
ROW 11 KNIT
ROW 12 PURL
On the left side, you would reverse the pattern - starting row 3 with K1 to make it look even. Pw and Kw are purlways and knitways.

Simple questions for an LK 150
I am not an accomplished knitter. I know the basics and can manage simple steps, but I lose track of where I am at a lot if the pattern gets complicated. As a result, I decided I wanted to try machine knitting.

I've made both a cable scarf and a two-color scarf. Both of them out very well.

Question 1). My color scarf is strictly stockinette and we all know it rolls. I used 42 needles. Should I fold it in half and seam it together? Are 21 needles to narrow for a scarf?


Question 2). I want to make an adult size hat to match my two color scarf. I'll do a mock rib on the brim. My question is how many needles should I use for an adult large head. Is there a pattern that I'm overlooking? I watched Roberta Kelly's video on her hat and understood the decreases but she was using a chunky machine and I have a med-gauge machine.

If you could answer simply with the number of stitches for Caron Simply Soft Acrylic yarn. It is s medium weight 4 and I'm using tension 6. Did I give all the important information? I will take Roberta guides on dividing it by 3 and use that for the decreases. I'll knit between 8 to 12 rows of brim and switch colors. I'll do 5 inches in the next color and then start decreasing.

Thank you,

Catherine

How do I find a source of a photo a friend sent me for a knitting pattern?
I admit I am not that good at this sort of thing, it is a UK baby knitting pattern, can't be that old as it is apparently in cm's rather than inches!! I would like to buy & make for my friend and it is sized from a 12" chest + and they are due a small baby.

It would also be good for the items I knit for my local Hospital Neo-Natal unit to sell, , but I know I read on KP you can search Google for an image. I have looked for ages today at patterns for sale, but not knowing who published it I have just been wasting time. If you could help I would be grateful.

Thank you.

Be patient I will try & attach a photo.

I must admit I never go on Pinterest, that may be where it was found, I don't know for sure...........but then I can never find how to buy anything I do like on there..

Atopic Dermatitis, so they say anyway...
Out of the blue a few years ago my fingertips started cycling through this dry flaky with tiny paper cut type cuts. The cuts burn and are excessively tender. Sometimes I can't even use a pen to write. Oh and primarily on my right hand. Yes, been to 2 different dermatologist only to be given creams that don't work and pretty much just saying...this can happen at any age, and half the population has it. And this unhelpful suppot cost hundreds of dollars. I've tried every cream etc that I can think of, the gloves at night yadayadayada. Please anyone have the same issue with a magic cure?

long time no chat (sorry its due to work commitments etc) , hope your all well, anyways I have just purchased a Knitmaster Mod 155 chunky machine, but I don't have any punch cards or patterns for this machine, I have checked out ebay they have loads for the Brother 260 but dont know if they will work on this one (it's a 12 stitch pattern) I could punch some out myself if I knew where to get a copy of the basic patterns from??

Can anyone help?

Best wishes

Annoyed with myself
I am knitting the Professor Meow sweater for a dear friend, and I thought I would try the sloped shoulder method with German Short Rows. Took a try or two to get it right, as I modified the shoulder yoke in seed stitch.

Finally got it, but got the slope wrong, so must frog AGAIN...(sigh)...
