Hello Woolikins,

Thank you so much for your responses.

I read both what you wrote and the pattern many, many, many times and I finally got it. I had time after all tonight and I knit a piece with 3 shells and it worked out for me. I started and ended with the right number of stitches and when I got the m. 2 wraps going in the right direction, the stitches all fell into place. I was very slow though, I'm afraid the sweater is going to take me a long time but I am ready to start now.

Thanks again.

Thank you for your reply. I will not have time for a few days to get back to knitting but I will keep you posted on my progress.

Hello again,

I have been trying out the pattern tonight and I now understand how the stitch count increases and then decreases back through the 12 pattern rows. This is a big step for me. I almost have it.

However I still have two areas I am not sure of.

1. I am not sure which direction to wrap the yarn for the m. 2. The m. 2 in rows 1, 5, 8 takes place after a knit stitch which means the yarn starts off at the back. On these rows do I bring the yarn to the front by putting it between the needles and return it to the back by wrapping it over the top of the right needle or do I wrap it over the top of the right needle to the front and return it to the back by going between the two needles? On row 9, the m. 2 takes place after a purl stitch which means the yarn starts off at the front. Do I bring the yarn over the top of the right needle to the back and then bring it forward to the front again by going between the needles or do I take the yarn to the back by going between the needles and then return to the front by going over the top of the right needle?

2. How do I knit and purl the 2 loops created by the m. 2? Do I knit and purl into the front of them or do I knit and purl into the back of them?

I know the Woolikins addressed the direction of the wrap in her response, however I still don't understand as the stitches don't seem to be working for me. Perhaps the way I am knitting and purling these stitches is the problem.

Thanks again.

Thank you all for the advice. I will try to do a sample of the pattern before I start the sweater.

Recently Woolikins posted the Pippy Shelly 3 Piece Baby Set pattern ( Her posting showed the vintage pattern ( knit with a modern yarn. Thank you Woolikins for the post. The set is beautiful and I would like to make it for my granddaughter and have purchased the suggested yarn.

However in reading over the pattern I do not understand the direction: m. 2 = make 2 (by putting wool over needle twice). Is this a double yarn over (yarn forward) or is it a make 1 with two wraps around the needle? Another thought, is it a knit 2 together with two wraps around the needle? Also after row 1 in the vintage pattern there is the sentence: Where the m2 occurs always work 2 stitches, except in row 9. What does this mean?

As you can see, I am very confused. Also I don't believe there is meant to be any increases in the number of stitches. Any advice you can give will be very much appreciated. I would like to try a few rows of the pattern with some waste yarn to get it right before I use the expensive yarn I bought. I have never purchased yarn this expensive before and I don't want to ruin it be ripping it out over and over.

Hoping to hear from you.

Realistic animals and birds are hard to find. You might have to start with something that is toy like and revise it.

Using this as a starting point:

I picked out the following and I only looked through a few of the pages:

Also there is a member here who has a special talent for knitting birds. I don't believe she sells her patterns but looking at the pictures could give you ideas:

Check out her Instagram page:

and her blog

She creates the dresses for sale and I don't believe she sells the patterns.

This one is available in the pdf of a book that is sold at

Here is a good source of sweaters, many raglan shoulders, maybe you could revise them to knit top down.
