I really want to make this shawl. I have been fighting with the pattern now for a week. Everything is great until I get to row 19. :?? It just dosen't work out. I was hoping that someone here might have made this shawl, and can help me.

Can you put the part you're having problems with here? Maybe we can help you work it out.

Or even better, is it a pattern you can link to?

I tryed the link thing.That was a bust. .........I got the pattern from Pattern Central ( I Looooove that site) I got in contacted with someone ,that I guess runs the site (wonderful person) that sent me here for help..... So if you have a few minutes, here's my prob. Row 18 : P9,k2,P3,k2,p9. (I have 25 sts on the needle now) ........... Row 19 RS: k4, (k, yo, k)<--all in the same stitch.) p2 (sl2-k1-p2sso) p2,k4,(k, yo,k)k4 Co3st.........Now call me crazy, but does row 19 add up to 21 sts? Or what am I doing wrong? And another thing (remeber I'm new here) how do get those little smiley guys in my post? They look fun. Thanx ...Karen

Here ya go.....

Candle Flame Shawl (http://web.archive.org/web/20020624070248/www.balart.com/CANDLE.HTM)

I'm counting 21, too.... :??

Have you emailed the designer? The one whose email is at the bottom of the pattern? Sounds like you emailed Rachel at knittingpatterncentral...

I get that you end up with 23, but use 21. That still doesn't help.

k4= 4
k,yo,k= 3
p2= 2
sl2,k1,psso=1
p2= 2
k4= 4
k,yo,k= 3
k4= 4
___
23

I am intensely interested in this pattern and its corrections. Any luck on retrieving them, before I go and bug the poor designer myself?

I'v bugged the the correction lady twice now (for reasons you have read..The King) She has no prob. with emailing you th pattern. She seems queit delighted. Ihave got way past my prob. area, and it's looking great. So go ahead Wynnie. Karen

So i have decided to go ahead and make this shawl with my Manos. But I'm stuck on the first stich!!!

The instructions say Cast on 1 stich then row is K,YO,K

but how do you YO if you've already knit the one stich off? :??

feministmama
03-11-2006, 02:06 PM
DOH! OK I figured out the the Cast on stich is the second stich after the slip knot which kinda counts as a stich right? So anyway, when you've got 2 stiches on the needles you can do the K, YO, K .

SO then the next row (row 2) is p3
then row 3 says: K1, (k,YO,K),K1.
What I don't get is why is the K.YO.K in parenthesis? If I try to knit the first of three stiches then knit the next stich, YO and knit the next stich there are no stiches left over to do the last K. and the next row (row 4) says to P5 so what I did on the the 3rd row was k1 YO k1 YO k1. THat gives me 5 stches so that I can purl them in the next row.

But then row 5 says K2 (K,YO,K) K2 with row 6 being all purls again. So this is the pattern but it doesn't make sense to me. Does it make sense to anyone else? :??

I think that from the first cast on, the (K, YO, K) is in the one stitch.

ooOOOOooo So on that first co stich I put then needle in, wrap yarn around and pull through as if to knit but don't pull the stich off, but YO first then knit.

Ingrid
03-11-2006, 02:31 PM
Exactly! That will get you your three stitches for the next row. :thumbsup:

feministmama
03-11-2006, 02:42 PM
SO I get to the next set of instructions in parenthesis and I realize that this is a special stich. So I look on the fron of my paper that printed off the pattern from and lo and behold there is the K,YO,K as a special stich with instructions how to knit it. DOH! I didn't even see that! I was reading the pattern literally instead of reading it as "the stiches in the parenthesis refer to a special stich indictated at the begining of the pattern." I feel so stoopid. :oops:

Thanks Ingrid. You rock as always. What would we do without you! :heart:
