Its OK I've worked out my error, off to undo my work :(

Davina 03.12.2018 - 12:21:

Hi on size 6/12 as you join all pieces together it says you have 222 stiches and to reduce this to 218. Stitch count of 35-56-60-56-35 = 242 What should i reduce my stitch count to to start the yoke? Thanks

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 13:35:

Dear Davina, you should have 35 sts for front piece + 46 stitches for sleeve + 60 sts for back piece + 46 stitches for sleeve + 35 sts for front piece = 35+ 46 + 60 + 46 + 35 = 222 stitches. Happy knitting!

Sue 25.09.2018 - 20:04:

I’m sorry I’m not sure I understand, I have just finished the rib and have the knitting on a circular needle in two halves. Do I knit 12 stitches and turn and knit back and do I also knit in garter stitch

DROPS Design 26.09.2018 kl. 07:46:

Dear Sue, the short rows for the elevation are worked following diagram M.2, (= stocking stitch with eyelet pattern = K from RS and P from WS). Work the short rows as explained: K12 from mid back from RS, turn and P 24 sts from WS, turn and work 12 sts more from RS, turn and work 12 sts more from WS and so on until you have worked the number of rows, then work to mid back again and continue in the round as explained. See here how to knit an elevation. Happy knitting!

Sue 24.09.2018 - 22:32:

Hi, I’m knitting the trousers and at the beginning I’m not sure I understand the pattern where you knit 12 stitches and turn and to also knit in the m1 pattern at the same time, are they also knit and purl rows, I’m knitting on a circulator needle

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 22:50:

Dear Sue, those rows will be short rows, knitted back and forth, to raise the waistline at the back. For this you should knit the pattern for RS, and WS rows. When finished the short rows, continue on the round. Happy Knitting!

Sue 20.09.2018 - 10:53:

Thanks so much for your help with this pattern 😃

Sue 19.09.2018 - 22:11:

Hi, sorry to ask yet another question but I’m now on Row 20 on the yoke M3, is the pattern as follows k2tog k1 yo s1 k2 tog psso yo k3 yo s1 k2tog psso yo k2 that makes the pattern repeat 13 stitches though and not 14, hope you can help

DROPS Design 20.09.2018 kl. 09:25:

Dear Sue, yes that's correct, on row 20 you are decreasing 1 stitch in each repeat in M.3 = 13 sts in each repeat. Then on row 22 you will decrease with K2 tog at the end of each repeat = 12 sts in M.3. Happy knitting!

Sue 19.09.2018 - 11:34:

Sorry I see what you mean now, Thankyou for your help. 😃

Sue 19.09.2018 - 11:14:

On the 2nd k2tog you say psso but I haven’t got a slip st to psso with not sure I know what you mean sorry

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 12:48:

oops my mistake, in the middle of repeat you work YO, slip 1, k2 tog, psso, YO (= still 3 sts) = 14 sts in total.

Sue 18.09.2018 - 21:16:

Hi Thanks for your help, I’m still struggling with the pattern, on Row 18 the repeat pattern consists of 15 stitches unless I am reading the pattern wrong. ( K1 K2tog yo K3 yo s1 k1 psso k2tog yo k3 yo s1 k1 psso) is this correct?

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 09:55:

Dear Sue, on row 18 work: K1, K2 tog, YO, K3, YO, slip 1, K2 tog, psso, YO, K3, YO, slip 1, K1, psso = 14 sts. Happy knitting!

Sue 18.09.2018 - 10:38:

It’s on the Yoke on Row 18 on the M3 pattern. After knitting rows 16 and 17 doing the repeat pattern it all works out fine, when I knit row 18 doing the repeat pattern I have stitches left but not enough to do a repeat pattern, hope you can help please

DROPS Design 18.09.2018 kl. 11:23:

Dear Sue, you can add a marker to mark beg and end of each repeat and make sure your number of sts is working fine on this row, you should still have 14 sts in each M.3 on row 18. Happy knitting!
