That might be a nice, simpler way of doing it. Would be nice to not have to pick up stitches! I'll give it a try.

I thought I'd revive this old thread rather than starting a new thread about the same pattern.

After doing the decrease row and the rib panel, I need to bind off. The pattern specifies binding off...

I'm trying to wrap my head around what's going wrong. You knit one row, then purl one row, but when you turn the work around to the right side, everything was knit. I assume you are working back and...

Thanks!

Yes, I'm going for that blousy feel that vintage patterns (cirka 1940s) have. They're usually knit straight in the body, ending at the waist with a single decrease row followed by a panel of...

I have no idea if this is correct, but I think that if I do (k2,k2tog) I should get to 174 sts, which would put me around the 81cm, and would work with a (k2,p1) rib. Have I got this right?

I cord! Of course, that totally makes sense, it'll match the rest of the edges! Wish she could have put those words in the pattern, it would have saved me some hairpulling.

Slip 3 sts at the end of each row?

I am working this pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/splittop), it's knit top down, and I've just reached the split at the top of the sleeves. At this point, the shirt is knit flat from...

I'm learning things here! :) Turns out the fiddly way of reaching through the first st to knit the second is both faster, and results in a looser and stretchier bind off. The alternative method of...

Yes, I realize that stretchy bind offs are always going to take up a lot of yarn, but on my first attempt at a bind off, I was only short by a very tiny bit, so I was hoping it would be possible to...

Wow, yes, that *is* confusing! As far as I can tell, you're supposed to first knit front and back once, then come the brackets (k2, k1f&b) which you have to repeat 7 times - so k2,k1f&b, k2, k1f&b,...

I second salmonmac, you shouldn't spend a lot of money on your first couple of projects, wait and see if you enjoy it first.
