    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...

    hennyknitting: Any ideas? Is anyone else adding gussets to their Pan Am? This jacket was designed without any underarm shaping, flat. Simple, obviously it looks super on the model in the pattern photo! Knowing other types of garment construction, I know...

    marygaring: I'm sorry I foregot to mention on page 19. Is this what you are referring to? If so, I guess I'm not at the right place in the pattern, yet, for this to help me understand how to make the gussets. Lynne, aka imalulu "The gusset...

    dianajoknits: Wow. How cool is that? Great job! I have finished my purl row and I'm doing the inside facing. So the pattern completely ignores half of the facing, correct? For the sewing down, I may do a sewn bind off rather than using lives stitches...

    Or, I just discovered that you can click on your avatar (picture to left of the posts) or in your case it is a ball of yarn. This will take you to your account page and your favorites. Also, FYI, under the avatar and under the number of posts you've...

    Very, very, happy. I've finished the Continuous Border and its facing. Photos below, also updated my notes on Ravelry (click on my Avatar and go to link in Announcements). I was not fastidious about following pattern in the mitering. I did a K1-f...

    I am working with Mushishi wool yarn and knitting a size 40 for my daughterinlaw. I have completed the body and just began the sleeves. Since many had talked about the sleeves being too small, I made some calculations, measured my own arm (I am smaller...

    ArtfulSoul: Docdixon: Could I impose on either of you to provide a paragraph explaining the border? I am having problems finding the information I need because there is a little bit here and there in the posts. There are different issues that each of...

    Want to find something you read in previous posts (somewhere) in this KAL forum? I've been reading every post since the beginning, and when I finally get to a step that I know was addressed...it's pretty daunting to find it going page by page...

    bessT: Musing on short rows, because I'm doing some on the back starting where we break for the sleeves (when I get there) they would have to be in pattern, so that some of the chevrons would have a fifth set of stitches, thinking in terms of 4-row...
  • Re: THE OFFICIAL PAN-AM JACKET KNIT-ALONG POST

    I've been considering short rows to lengthen the back but decided against them. My garment (thus far) looks like it has a little drape in the back and the pics of the finish garment do too. So I may not need any additional length there. I might actually...
  • 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

    I am dividing for the sleeves and come up with 1 stitch less for each half of the back. the chart matches the knitting (42) . the pattern says 43. im going with 42 (92 total). anyone else have this problem? i may add extra stitches at the underarm for...

    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...

    Hi - Reading over the posts today - hoping to have the confidence to get this jacket started! I'm worried about the size of the sleeves too, and would like to make the entire sleeve about an inch wider from the armhole down. But if I add stitches...

    I just finished Kathleen Cubley's new post, "Make it Fit", and I think it addresses some of our questions about that mysterious "slight ease". I didn't want to cut and paste with out her permission, but she talks about Laura...

    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...
