M1 unt is the stitch for me to do. I cannot find anywhere to find out what the 'unt' means. Anyone know? Thanks. :shrug:

What does the rest of the line say? If you post the entire line of instructions it might make more sense.

It's a child's shawl in the Knitting Calendar (a pattern a day for a year). The line says:

Setup Row (RS): Sl1 wyif, k4, M1 unt, k1, pm, k1, m1 unt, k10, m1 unt, k1, pm, k1, m1unt, k10 m1 unt, k1, pm ,k1, m1 unt, k5 (42 sts total).

Any idea what the "m1 unt" means? I know what m1 means (make one) but the 'unt' alludes me! Thanks for any help!

that's a doozey... not sure, but i'm gonna hunt through my books now, i've never seen it before. I've been trying to think what it could be an acronym (is that the right word, been ages since i did grammar at school) for, and all i can come up with is 'under next thread', but that doesn't make any sense either!! ... under needle, up needle, bah!!

Hope I can find something for you, but i'm equally keen to see what everyone thinks.

your instructions don't give any sort of abbreviation glossary? :??

When patterns use odd abbreviations like that, they're supposed to tell you what it means. :!!!: If they don't explain it in the pattern instructions, maybe there's an appendix at the end of the calendar?

:shrug: Never heard of that one, either. I'd probably just M1 and see what happened.

Thanks for the help everyone! There is a glossary, but nothing on 'unt'. I think I'll just go with the M1 (like I have already and it looked fine, except i forgot one M1 somewhere and have now unwound it all!) So maybe if I keep better track the second time around I can get it right! I think it's the last time I buy one of these Knitting Calendars. All the patterns were kind of lame except for this one. Well, if anyone has a cuter poncho for a one year old, let me know!

well i didn't buy this year's calendar when i realized that almost all the patterns from last year's were available free on line! still nice to have them all in one place.

what day is the date on that calendar? maybe someone else can look at it and figure out what the heck they are talking about. I keep reading it as "unit"... i am guessing that isn't right...lol

It's March 15, 2007 from the Knitting (All New Knits with Paulette Lane & Friends). The box has a girl with a hat and mittens on.

The page is called Kate's Cape. Can you tell me where this might be on the internet brendajos? I can't figure out how to email you direct yet. I'm a newbie on here. But love this site! The videos are so helpful.

I got one for Christmas so I can tell you that you made the right decision. I recognized most of the patterns as online freebies. I wish I could exchange it for something else, but I opened the cellophane to look inside. :doh:

the pages are all one by one sheets.

Um... I just looked at mine, and it explains what "M1 unt" means right under the gauge. For those who are curious, it stands for "make one untwisted" -- it's what Amy calls a decorative increase. (I think it can also be called a strand increase.)

Maybe I have an updated edition, though seems unlikely that a calendar would have a second printing... :shrug:

That one is here (http://www.dawnadcock.com/childrenspatterns.htm) but she charges for her patterns!

Would it have killed them to add the 'wisted?" :!!!:

Oh, gosh, I feel like an idiot :( sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees! I was centered on the back of the instruction sheet! I think I need to take my memory pill! Get back all those brain cells I've wasted along the way! Thanks :notworthy:

I feel like i just spent 20 minutes wondering what "wisted" was....granted it was about 5 seconds but still. :doh:

No worries! It happens to the best of us... for some of us, multiple times a day, every day... not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything. ;)

Yes, it quite possibly would have. It's called "death by wisting." Haven't you heard of it? :teehee:

Not too long ago I was making a complicated cable pattern. In the key of symbols, there was a curly one for wrap and turn.

Then I found another curly one, and for the life of me couldn't find what it was. I went back to it again and again, very frustrated because they didn't include this particular curl in the key.

I must say that it was late and I was waiting in the emergency room for someone. I had to laugh when I figured it out.

The second curly symbol was a six. :rofl:

:roflhard: :roflhard: :chair:

And just an aside, everytime i come to this forum (which is multiple times daily, so i end up with this song in my head all day every day), and see janelanes' posts, i end up singing Cake's song Daria all day. :teehee:

That's funny...I think of the hair band Warrant whose lead singer was Janie Lane...lol



(yes I have made a Lita Ford and Janie Lane reference in the same day...and I really am mostly a country girl, but for my college years! :teehee:)

I got janelane from Daria. The paintbrush part got typed out of habit, because I use it for one of my email addresses. In hindsight I wish I had come up with something more interesting, but :shrug:. I didn't know I'd be spending so much time here when I first signed up.

I :heart: that Cake album, BTW. Did you notice that an instrumental version of Italian Leather Sofa was used as the theme song for Mission Hill? (Yes, it wasn't as good as Daria, but any show that uses a Cake song can't be too bad. I don't think it lasted very long, though.)

I :heart: that album too, but i haven't heard about Mission Hill. Being in Australia, we tend to hear about things years after you guys. I'm gonna have to go do some hunting on the net, time to load up limewire i guess. :teehee:

At least you picked something cool to go with the 'paintbrush' being as Jane Lane was an artist and all. I miss that show :verysad:

You don't have to go on the internet, it's right there on the front page of the pattern under the Gauge line.

"M 1 unt: Make 1 untwisted increase by...." I'm not going to type it out because it's several lines. But the explanation is there.

On the front of the instructions for Kate's cape iit says

M1 unt: Make 1 untwisted increase by inserting left needle from front to back under the running strand connecting the stitch just knit and the next stitch on left needle, and knit this strand through the front to create an untwisted lace increase, (creates smaller hole than a yarn over).

Hope this clears up M1 unt

I was still considering getting this calender. While xmas shopping I had seen it for Crochet and probably would have bought the knitting had it been available, but I was still thinking of getting it. Looks like I will pass. Beside you can probably buy a book or 2 magazines for the same price.

The only reason I have this calender is I got it as a christmas gift
I there are not that many great patterns in it.

I would not buy another one. The free patterns you can find online are way nicer and worth it to make.

I got mine last week for half off at the calendar kiosk at the local mall. One magazine's worth, and 365 patterns, even if I won't use them all.

Got it half price at Borders, so I don't feel bad if it stinks. Actually, mine had 2 Novembers and no July, so the publisher is sending me out a new one.
