I am going to knit my first adult-sized sweater and not one that is in the round and have a couple of questions on the pattern. It's the Jesse's Flame pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation. I'm actually not going to do the flame pattern.
The first question is what do I do when the pattern says, "Work 1 row even."?
The second question is when it comes to the neckline directions. It says, "Joining a new ball of MC to left front, work both sides of neck at once and cont to dec on st at each should edge EOR and, at the same time, BO 1 st from each neck edge EOR until there is 1 st on each side." I don't understand the portion of the instructions in bold. I don't get how to "work both sides of neck at once" especially since there are going to be 2 working yarns. The pattern doesn't say to break yarn from the original working yarn.
Hello knitter men!
I know that your site is used to promote knitting among men and I think it's great! In fact, I would love to help out!
I work for South West Trading Company (www.soysilk.com) aquiring new patterns to support our yarns. As part of our Summer '06 line, we have introduced a yarn called Twize. It is an 8-ply, 100% bamboo yarn and has a very special color just for you men out there. It is called Twen (as in men!)
The purpose of my post here is to see if there is anyone interested in designing a pattern out of this yarn. I would love to promote it as a pattern for men, by men! It need not be anything complex. I'm thinking of simple vest or something along those lines. Of course you would be given the credit for the pattern and I would be more than delighted to compensate you with any yarn of your choice for your time and talent.
Do we want women joining this site?
I am so frustrated with myself. I totally misread a pattern and have had to rip out 3 days work. It was when I was towards the end of the second ball of Debbie Bliss that I realised my mistake. Looking back at the pattern it was increase 6 stitches the next 6 rows. For whatever reason I increased only 1 stitch each of 6 rows
