Thanks, Susan, but I don't think I can use that because I'm casting on in the middle of the row. I can't do a long-tail cast-on. I appreciate it, though!

Knitted cast-on in purl?

I'm knitting a Picovoli (http://www.magknits.com/Aug05/picovoli.htm) (two years late, I know!) and have just gotten to the armholes. The pattern suggests doing the "knitted cast-on in purl" for the...

Thanks again for the feedback. I think I've solved my problem... by casting on for Picovoli. Since it's top-down, I can try it on as I go, and if I like it, I won't feel as awful frogging the ballet...

Thanks for the replies already and for telling me what I want to hear! I'm using Shine Sport, which is a cotton blend, so I'm guessing I can't rely on blocking. Is that right? I do wonder if it'll...

I made a skinny one out of Malabrigo - I think I cast on 20 stitches with size 9 needles? Anyway, it was almost 6 feet long. I used a skein.

How old is your daughter? I found that the best carriers for hiking really depend on the child's age and how far you're planning on hiking. We have an REI frame one that is great for longer hikes.

Also, the k2tog is 2 stitches to start, but it's a decrease, so you end up with 1 each time. The 4 k2tog's take you from 8 stitches to 4 stitches. Then, if you have 4 sets of (yo, k1), that's a total...

katiebug is right. If you think of it as:
1. yo
2. slip
3. knit
4. yo

Thanks, everyone. I'm still not sure what to do, though. I guess I'll use the same yarn again, with even-smaller needles, and then re-wash and dry to see what happens.
