I just completed a sweater I saw knitted onknitty gritty, by Stefanie Japel. My sweater looked nothing like the one on tv. After careful studying I noticed on the body pattern #8 was left off which is a Purl row which threw off the whole look. ANyway I'll try again and hope all is well:muah: :muah:

That's a bummer! What is the name of the pattern?

I would also like to know the name of the episode and/or sweater.

Update:
Just found it. That was the episode that was on a couple of days named "The better sweater". When you say #8 do you mean the 8th row of the body? If that's it then it's purled like the rest of the even rows.

I'm going to try that very soon
Thanks!!

Yes it is the Better Sweater and the mistake is in the body. They should have printed #8 purl as the last row of the body. I knitted it with just ending row 7 and its horrible!! Oh well live and learn
But it is a nice sweater

Yes it's #8 and when I thought about I should have caught the mistake before I started but just didn't:(

Me neither, Jan! too much boob-age (me, not the sweter). I hate to think what I'd look like in that sweater. It'd be cute on a different body type then mine, though.

Lids - you can knit a sweater - it's just sticks and string, afterall. Plenty of people here to help you out if you get stuck. What types of projects have you done so far?

Now that I've seen the pattern, it's worded like I thought:

"Row 2 and all even rows: K3, p to last 3 sts, k3."

That would include row 8, because in a stockinette based pattern, you don't do 2 knit rows together.

Yes, but I can see why it is confusing. It doesn't say anywhere to continue with row eight or actually when to stop doing the body rows, so I can see how anyone would assume that you stop after row 7. Especially since it says directly after that to work 5 rows of garter stitch. I think adding one line that says "end with row 8" would make it much clearer.
