And Apple people don't get the chart if using Pages- like BirgittaR describes.

I prefer instructions rather than charts in any ase - can we have both for the different styles of knitters?

For all users of older versions of Word (like I am), this file is a .docx format.  It WILL open if you update your Word to include file converters that work with documents created in newer versions.  It is a free download from Microsoft.  Once you download the file converters, it works seamlessly.  But this said, I agree, pdfs are much more user friendly for all.

I can upload the file here but it only shows the explanations on the left of symbols of stitches, the charts are nowhere to be seen. At Melissas page I get an error message. It would be greatly appreciated if whomever posted this could try to fix it as its obviously causing problems. Thanks!

I wanted to let future IOS readers know that this chart downloads fine to an I-Phone & lets you immediately place it in iBooks.  You just have to click on the "Members Only" that you've set up in the middle of the screen & sign in to KD.  Thank you for the chart!

p.s.  hope future posters won't fall into the PC vs MAC conversations.  We're a "community" of knitters, hopefully supporting each other mo matter what transportation we take to arrive at KD.

I can only access .docx files on one of my co-worker's computers at work.  Both my computers at home and the one I use at work have older versions of MS Office on them.  I am going to skip trying to open this and find the info elsewhere...

You know that commercial Mac vs PC?  Wel, I'm a PC and doing fine. I have never owned an Apple product (never will either) and never missed a thing. Macs are not the only game in town (or Apple products for that matter.)

 

I downloaded an opened it just fine.

I tried every way to get this to download or save for me and I just couldn't really wanted to learn how to do this too.  Hopefully you will put it on again and maybe we can get it.  Thanks.

Mrsbradforth, is it necessary for you to be a snob about your mac?

I am guessing that the person who uploaded this file goofed and uploaded the original Word file instead of a PDF version.  If anyone wants a PDF of it, I created one from the Word document.  I uploaded it to my site, www.anapsid.org/knit/knit-scene-hem-charts.pdf

Don't know what you folks are moaning about. Ideally a pdf would be the format to use, but I use a Mac and wouldn't touch Word with a bargepole and guess what: I opened the file without any problem at all.

Don't have word and this is something that would be good if you put the file into a pdf file. On count of all most everyone has this file to open .

I have a Mac and don't have the option to open this file with preview. The only option I am given is to save the chart. When I open it, there is no chart, only the chart key. For those who don't have Word, you can use Open Office which is free from Apache and available online for both Macs and PCs. Everyone can access pdf's so it makes absolutely no sense to have this only as a Word doc.

I have word but it still will not open because my computer also has word pad with open office and it takes over on me.

Tried to save it as word and it still does not open right.

I can get the stitch definitions but not the charts.

To BCGramma, open it with Preview and then export it as a PDF.

All my excitement flew out the "Window" when I found the document is Word.  Please accomodate those of us who love our Macs.

Too bad this is a Word Doc. Not everyone has Word, a PDF file would have been much better. I would love to try this, but alas cannot because I do not have Word on my Mac.

function DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url) { var object = document.getElementById("cosymantecnisbfw"); if(null != object) { object.DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url);} }; function Nav(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, isBool, url) { var object = document.getElementById("cosymantecnisbfw"); if(null != object) object.Nav(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, isBool, url); }; function NavigateComplete(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, url) { var object = document.getElementById("cosymantecnisbfw"); if(null != object) object.NavigateComplete(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, url); } function Submit(browserID, tabID, target, url) { var object = document.getElementById("cosymantecnisbfw"); if(null != object) object.Submit(browserID, tabID, target, url); };

Always been fond of hems.  Quite like the picot edge with the fold line consisting of K2tog, YO right across. The tip of using smaller needles on the inside of the hem is a good one.  I have done the cuff of socks with the picot edge -makes it very sturdy.  For toddler and baby girls, increase your stitches 1.5 to double the number to make a frilly picot hem that sits horizontal on ankle socks.  The picot edge hem is very cute on children's sweaters and cardigans.  I once did it on the peter pan collar, sleeves,  and the join of the bodice and skirt on a toddler sized dress.

Thank you, this is awesome! Am about to knit a garment and was wondering about an alternative to rib on the cuff and waistband- this will really, really help ;-)
