Comment on Bob Dobbs Vest Update by Sara https://cozknits.com/bob-dobbs-vest-update/#comment-336 Sun, 23 Dec 2007 23:43:23 +0000 http://mierdadeltoroitsafineart.com/cozknits/2007/09/26/bob-dobbs-vest-update/#comment-336 Hi- I have just completed the shoulder shaping for the right front and think there’s another error in the instructions. I also noticed the number of stitches is out. I’m wondering if what I’ve found is the reason why yours isn’t sitting right- the back shoulder shaping correctly has the shoulders sloping downwards, but the front shoulder shaping slopes upwards, so when you graft the shoulders, the opposing slopes will fit together and cancel each other out leaving no shaping and a tighter shoulder. I’m going insane trying to work out what the instructions should be, since the sides of the neck are worked into the pattern and simply reversing the shaping doesn’t mirror the back at all. The shaping for the front starts about 4 inches below the back. I think I’m going to have to rewrite the whole front shoulders and possibly leave the neck stiches to be picked up afterwards. I like the idea of keeping all the stitches live, but it makes it so much harder to see what’s going on

Comment on Emma Jacket is Finished! by Kristen https://cozknits.com/emma-jacket-is-finished/#comment-386 Sun, 18 Nov 2007 03:50:42 +0000 http://mierdadeltoroitsafineart.com/cozknits/2007/11/16/emma-jacket-is-finished/#comment-386 I found you on Ravery…and read your about page here. I had to comment, because we have a lot in commen. I was looking for other Fullerton knitters…you are. And then I read that you went to Cal Poly. I graduated there with a B.Arch. My bro. graduated from there too…M.E. I think the technical stuff was in our blood. I’m aDayInTheLife on Ravelry.

Too cool, it does sound like we have lots in common, I’ll have to drop by and say hi on Ravelry! Isn’t Ravelry the best thing since sliced bread?!

I’m working on this right now and I’m confused. On the back shoulder shaping, I can’t figure out if the rows ending in wrap, turn should be causing me to decrease. It looks like I’m supposed to end up with 42 sts, but I can’t figure out where the decrease comes from. Am I missing something? Or are the rest of the stitches part of the neckline that doesn’t get grafted to the front?

You aren’t decreasing the amount of stitches at all, you just aren’t knitting them and they will be staying on the needle. You just knit to the amount of stitches it says, then you wrap and turn, each time you are knitting less stitches (this is how short rows work). Essentially you are adding some extra fabric to the area without making the overall garment longer (check out pg 62 to see what you are doing to the garment; there’s a really good picture). After you are done with the short rows, the 42 stitches you have left from knitting them are put on a stitch holder…your last instruction should be to purl 42 stitches (those are the ones you are supposed to put on a stitch holder). The remaining stitches on either side of these middle stitches are your shoulder stitches that will be grafted. Hope that helps you out.

It will definitely do that! I learned grafting from this book and a whole lot of other techniques that I hadn’t seen before.
