  4. Hi Marianna...I have a question that is probably stupid but I can't figure it out. On the last row of the sleeve you have to cast off 3 stitches at the beginning and end of row. I know how to cast off the 3 stitches at the beginning of the row but don't know how to do this at the end of the row. On other patterns I would normally cast off the 3 stitches at the beginning and knit to the end of the row and then do another row and cast off the 3 stitches at the beginning of the next row but I don't think that is what you want.
    I love all your patterns and think it's wonderful that you share them with us. I do a lot of knitting for charity so these patterns are great.

  33. I just started this. I'm a bit of a beginner. Can you tell me how many stitches there should be for each sleeve? One of your other patterns told how many stitches per row and that was very helpful. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am at a loss regarding the base of the sweater. I did the "Next Row: Knit 26sts, cast off 6sts, knit 47sts, cast off 6sts, k25sts"

    I do not understand this part "Next Row: Knit 26sts from the right front, 26sts from the first sleeve, 48sts from the back, 26sts from the second sleeve and 26sts from left front (152 stitches)" An I suprose to knit back and forth 26 stitches and then pick up stitcheson the other sid of the created arm hole? It doesn't state to pick up stitches or to cast off and start again.
    I'm sure I did something wrong.I can usually figure this stuff out.
    Thanks for your help. Laura

  35. I'm fairly new to knitting too and I can't figure this out either!

    Can anyone help?? PLEASE,!!

  36. If you knitted 2 sleeves as instructed first, you would have 2 sleeves on 2 x stitch holders (26 stitches on each). When you have knitted rows 1-8 x 3 times and rows 1-6 once, you are ready to join your sleeves to the body of the garment ready for the yolk. As it says, knit 26 stitches at the beginning of the next row from the bodice (right front), then the 26 stitches from one sleeve, then the next 48 stitches from the bodice (back) , then the 26 stitches from the second sleeve then the remaining 26 from the bodice (left front). You should then have a strange looking garment with holes where you have knitted in the sleeves to the main body. If you keep on knitting it will all fall into shape when you complete the project. You will still need to sew the up the sleeve seams.
