    Mommorita: I am having an awful time reading those graphs. I get that the written directions are the same as rows 1 and 2 on the graph. Row 3 doesn't seen to match what I did on 1&2. The first stitch is a slip and the 2nd stitch was a purl (right...

    SusanD@96: Meaghan, So glad you have finally started and are not having problems. I will be restarting in a few minutes as I messed up my first try. Now that I have had a few days to read through the posts, I shall give it another try. Here goes.... Susan...

    Cast on question for the neck: After row 28 we're supposed to cast on 14 st (for 37 1/2") for the neck shaping. What cast on method is recommended here (for those of you who have gone past this)? My initial thought is backward loop but it may...
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    I used a knitted cast on. Worked well. Backward loop would probably also work. All of the edges are going to be "covered" with the edging so I thought that any neat cast on would do.

    I have found that the longer I knit the pattern the easier it gets. I no longer have to study the rows. I just need to study the increase. The rows are combinations of: 4 rows of k2, p2, k2, p3, k2, p2, k2 (and reverse of this pattern) and 4 rows of k2...

    CateM: The first stitch of each row is slipped. Is it always slipped purlwise (as it was in rows 1 and 2)? About last selvedge stitch(es )- it seems there is only 1 end of row selvedge stitch in rows 1 and 2 and it should be a stockingnet stitch , right...

    JKBear: I'm doing a knit M1 by picking up back to front and knitting into the front, or purl the opposite (pick up front to back and purl into back). No holes, you can't tell the difference in my mind. I do M1's in the same manner. Another...

    MichelleR: Willyknit: The 1st stitch of every RS is a sl 1 and the last stitch on the RS is a knit and the 1st stitch on the WS is a Sl 1 and the last stitch is a purl -- just like the written instructions for rows 1 and 2. The larger directions say to...

    A few more questions after reviewing all the wonderful explanations. The first stitch of each row is slipped. Is it always slipped purlwise (as it was in rows 1 and 2)? About last selvedge stitch(es )- it seems there is only 1 end of row selvedge stitch...

    SoCalMeaghan: We have 5 charts (sleeve, left front, left back, right front and right back) that I understand. We then have the first two rows written out as well as charted (as far as I can tell). Are the first two rows that are written out meant to be...

    I have made it to row 33. I did Row 1 and 2 from the written instructions and added the markers as instructed. I then moved to the charts and followed just the charts. The markers remind you to do the 4 raglan stitches and change charts. It has worked...

    The gusset is done and I am pleased with the results. The designer's join for the sleeve underarm is very nice - but no wiggle room at all. When I saw the size of the opening, I decided on a gusset. Yes, the knitted fabric is very stretchy and I think...
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    AdeleDS: 1. The first two rows are the written-out-in-full versions of the first two rows of the charts. So when you've done the first two rows and you switch to the charts you will already be on Row 3. No rows are repeated. 2. The Front Neck shaping...

    There are 10 stitch markers making up 5 pairs: 4 rm and 1 cbm. In between each pair of markers are 4 divider stitches - these stitches remain constant and do not increase and they do not appear on the charts. The stitches in between the pairs (2 markers...

    MichelleR: I went ahead and worked those first two rows as written then got to thinking that if I follow the chart for row 3 it will mess up the pattern. Hi! The 1st stitch of every RS is a sl 1 and the last stitch on the RS is a knit and the 1st stitch...
