Does this filter make my face look fat?
I hate when I turn up at an event to find someone has bought the same outfit!
Is it humid? I feel like it's humid.
Can anyone help ? Knitting a child's gurnsey in the round, have split for yoke and now have cable row at back (purl side) of work. It is only a one stitch twist. Is it possible to cable from the purl row and get it looking right at the front. Have I made myself clear or is it all a bit garbled?
When you get back to those stitches, it should be possible to drop them down and undo the error and correct it by working from the right side - with a crochet hook if necessary. Pop an opening stitch marker through the stitches a row or so below the error so that they don't wander off by themselves.
It's another way of expressing gauge but in terms of the ratio between the stitch's width and its height - most useful if you are wanting to use knitter's graph paper to design something.
You divide row number by stitch number. Standard DK gauge is 22 sts to 30 rows per 4"/10cm. So 30÷22 = 1.36 = ratio.https://www.sweaterscapes.com/land-chart-paper.htm
You can't avoid them because it's the way the yarn loops through the existing stitches. If your work has a right and wrong side, always join a new colour on a right side row.
If you are working in rib, m then knit the right side row you change colour on and resume the ribbing on the next row.
If it's reversible, you are stuck with them - some websites call them "icky dots".
If I'm understanding your proposal, you want to cast on as per usual onto a circular needle then, using a second circular, knit upwards.
Then when you come back to knit your border, you use the stitches on the first circular.
If you have done a provisional cast on, when you remove it you are left with live loops that behave just the same way as when you knitted in the other direction.
If you knit from a standard cast on, you will have the ridge that would normally form the cast on edge between the two directions - defeating the whole purpose of the provisional cast on!
You got a new breed over there? Weredeer?
This is a beautiful cable pattern....will make a stunning garment.
It is lovely, but it's not a cable.
No stitches were crossed in the making of this sample.
Yep. I got screwed.
That'll be because Sherryc got it all!!
The pattern as charted worked for me. The fourth symbol is a double decrease: slip 1, k2tog, pass the slipped stitch over.
I'm too tired to try and reverse it as well to get the full effect as in the blue-grey sample.
Hilary4 I'm excited to know someone else out there liked the Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper. I absolutely loved those books, yet I don't think I've met another who has read them. 'The Phantom Tollbooth' by Norman Juster is wonderful. And, well, of COURSE Nancy Drew :)
The Phantom Tollbooth - one of the funniest books I have ever read, almost wasted on children. I have pointed quite a few of my friends in its direction.
Little House on the Prairie - it was everything my life wasn't: my Dad died when I was eight and my siblings were a lot older than me so it was just Mum and me - I loved the family nature of the stories.
The Over Sea, Under Stone series by Susan Cooper
The Chalet School series - a rather romantic view of a girls' school in the Swiss Alps.
Mum and I spent 9 months touring Europe when I was 10 - finding books in English was sometimes a challenge - during this trip I read the Diary of Anne Frank, Three Men in a Boat, 1066 and All That (hilarious) and a number of Gerald Durrell's wonderful autobiographical animal books.
