Has anyone made the Flattering Jacket Lion Brand Homespun?
Anyone care to guide me on this pattern ?


I have done the 'Back' I am stumped at ,


Shape armholes. It says Cont in seed st,bind off 3 sts at beg of next 2 to rows.


Now my question is, how do I bind off in seed sts?

You will be binding off the same way you were following the pattern. If your first stitch would be a knit stitch, then you k, p, slip the first stitch over the second (that's one bound off stitch) then k and slip the first stitch on the needle over the second one (that's 2 bound off stitches,) purl the next stitch and slip the first stitch over the needle (that's 3 bound off stitches)

Now continue for the rest of your row in seed stitch.

Basically, you are just knitting the purls and purling the knits but binding off at the same time.

A bind off is exactly the same as knitting your stitch pattern except that you pass the sts over one another instead of leaving them on the right needle.

Now, it calls for

Dec 1st at each end of the next row ,then every other row 2 more times -63sts. Work even in seed st until armholes measure 9 1/2inches, Bind off Loosely.


Is the Dec done as k2tog at the both ends?

Usually you do a ssk/skp at the beg of the row and k2ktog at the end. This makes the decreases 'lean' toward the center of the piece.

Next question,when it says continue, in seed st,bind off 3 sts at beg of next 2 rows.

What constitutes a row? When I bind off 3 and cont in seed to the end of row, then turn work and bind off 3 sts again and cont in seed to end of work ,is that then counted as my 2 rows?

Yes, that's right. A row is working the sts across the needles from beginning to end.

Suzeeq, I forgot to ask, when I do the Dec 1 st at each end of the next row , you said to ssk/skp and k2ktog at the end.

Do I slip the purls as purls and the knits as knits? (I'm working in Seed)


I know the k2tog, but what do you mean by k2ktog? Shouldn't that be just k2tog ?

When you slip sts for a decrease, you slip them knitwise, whether they're knits or purls.

Ooops, k2ktog is a typo, it's k2tog. Dang keyboard on the laptop skips the cursor around on me. I'll be typing and then I'm on a line 3 rows up....
