Collar doesn't quite look right
I made this for my daughter from a pattern in the book The Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. It begins with a Channel Island Cast on. I had never heard of it before, but I love the way it looks (with a little bit of a picot edge), and will probably use it again many times. But I'm not crazy about the way the collar seems to want to roll down. I followed the directions exactly and blocked lightly, but it still doesn't seem perfect. Maybe it won't show as much when it's worn. I wonder if anyone has a suggestion for me.
I used Love Knitting's DK with Wool yarn. I loved everything about this yarn, but unfortunately they don't have a wide color selection.
DAK 8 question
Can anyone possibly help me? Iâm not sure why the shape of the set in sleeves is doing the bind off then increasing.... which measurements are causing this? Thanks
Patterns for sale
I am curious to know why it is that people can sell patterns or knit articles from a patented pattern then sell them and nothing is said, but if someone gives a pattern to someone else there is an uproar saying that is not allowed.
Does anyone have any recomendation on interchangeable needles? Ive uses addis, chiagoo, and hiyas. They all have their pros and cons. I just got some hiyas recently and found the tips too blunt. I found a similar thread to this but it was from 2011 so i figured i would start a new thread as some things may have changed. Thanks!
Finished this one last night I will be away for 2 weeks so will be behind in my knitting so need to get busy today and tomorrow
I have been knitting for sixty years and crocheting for almost forty years and have developed trigger finger in my right ring finger where I guide my yarn as I am left handed. Any one else have this problem and suggestions on how to deal with it?
