    Dianajo....your gusset looks fantastic. How do you do a gusset like that? Can you explain? Lynne, aka imalulu dianajoknits: I'm having success uploading and thought i would include a pic of my finished gusset. Boy, did I need it.

    thanks. simple explaination to start and if you need more details let me know. when you divide for the sleeves and put your sleeve stitches on a thread, cast on 8 or 10 additional stitches between the divider stitches. so you will have K1 P1 (CO8 or 10...

    Gusset update - started the sleeve and picked up 10 stitches for the gusset (8 on the other side) so my gusset is not totally symetrical but looks fine to me. Trying this jacket on leads me to believe that I would have been very unhappy without the gusset...

    cazknits: I read through the posts, and I didn't see this question, but I may have missed it. If so, sorry if it's been asked and answered ... When you divide for the body, it appears that the fronts stop on Row 71 (according to the charts) but...

    hennybeckert@gmail.com: Hi, my name is Henny, and this is my 1st KAL. I am in North Eastern Australia, which makes it a little difficult with the time zones. I have been following all the posts from the start, and am now dividing body and sleeves . The...

    cazknits: Re: Dianajoknits' earlier post about only having 42 back panel stitches instead of the stated 43 (size M) -- I had the same thing. I'm leaving it as is too - have you had any problems from doing this? i guess the answer is "no"...

    JanC@30: Thanks all for gusset help. HOWEVER it seems I still need help. According to the previous posted gusset help, I divided my stitches after completing row 51. Isn't that correct for the smallest size? "the I structio s for the gusset said...

    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.
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    AdeleDS, I agree and will do my Make1 the old fashioned way. This is my first top down garment and my first all in one piece project so I am having trouble keeping track of the stitches so have come up with a way to visually keep me on track by labeling...

    NEVER MIND...FOUND Kathleen's directions
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    I had concerns about the upper arms of this jacket looking tight on the model in the picture. My upper arms are a bit large so I was concerned about them fitting comfortably. I contacted the designer through Ravelery to ask about this. I also asked when...

    I've ripped back to the beginning too to remove those extra sleeve stitches I put in and do a nicer job on increases, since there are so many of them. I'm now back to where I was a couple days ago. But it was easier the second time around. I'm...

    The best advise I know for the pattern, is that everything is none is rows of 4. So I pick it up when I know I can do at least 4 rows. Otherwise I knit something else. Good Luck
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    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

    a gusset update. Now that I've gone an inch or two beyond the underarm, I'm even more pleased. The gusset just tucks right in to the deep chevron pattern - excellent!
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    I am also finding the pattern challenging. I am having trouble following the yellow line. The increase I am using is not leaving any holes. You can view a video here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/make-1-left-english There are examples of different...
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    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 was concerned about the sleeve depth and added...
