    Row 8 seems to be written for 29 stitches rather than 28, and Row 11 is missing. I’m confused!

  5. January 2, 2013 at 10:13 am

    I am trying to help a friend with this pattern, and our combined knitting experience is a bit frazzled now…

    Row 11 is missing, though I assume that is a numbering problem rather than a pattern issue.

    Also, I am not understanding the cabling rows. I have done cables… a lot… so I am not a novice. For example. After casting on 28 stitches, and knitting 1 row, leaving 28 stitches:

    Row 2:
    K2, P1, K1, BO 4, K1 P3 – Consumes 12 stitches

    C2F – Consumes 4 stitches

    K2, P3, K1, BO4, K1, P1, K2 – Consumes 14 stitches

    By my count… that’s 30 stitches.

    Now, I can solve that problem by using the k1 before the 4 bound off stitches as the first stitch to bo… thus only consuming 28… which works. And that may be what you intended… so moving on. At the end of this row, I should have 20 stitches on the needle.

    Row three puts our count back to 28, with the make 4 in there twice.

    Row 4 and 5 consume 28 stitches… we are on a roll!

    But then we get to another cabling row:

    Row 6: K2, P1 – that’s 3 stitches total.

    C3B – this takes 6 stitches

    K3, P3, K4 – There goes 10 more…

    C3F – and another 6…

    leaving only 3 stitches of our original 28… but wait! The pattern calls for SIX MORE!

    K3, P1, K2

    Now… on Ravelry, three folks have undertaken this pattern, and why not, it’s lovely! One commented that the cables were hard to wrap their brain around, but once they figured it out it was smooth sailing. The other two don’t seem to have any comments… So I am hoping that with your help, we can wrap our brains around it.

    Thanks so much.

    Just an odd question… could it be that you are writing a redundancy into your pattern?

    Row 6: K2, P1, C3B, K3, P3, K4, C3F, K3, P1, K2

    Where is the whole cable? In every pattern I have read the C3B implies the use of 6 stitches, but are you using it only to note the 3 stitches slipped to the holder?

    ok help…. I’m very sure it’s just me… but when i do row 3 , and we have to M4. The first time matches up with the button hole, but the second one doesn’t. I have torn it out twice. What am I doing wrong?

      Hello, I will take a look at this after I get home from work today! I’m sorry for the confusion!

      Same thing happened to me. I just fudged it to make it work…

      I’m sorry this has taken so long to reply. My father died last summer and I am just now able to get back to my blog. I’m sorry it has taken so long. Are you still having trouble? Would it help to make a video of this?

    I’m having the same problems with the buttonholes that Debbie is. This is my first knitting pattern ever so I’m not that great at fudging to make it work.

      Let me look into this. I’m sorry this has taken so long to reply. My father died last summer and I am just now able to get back to my blog. I’m sorry it has taken so long.

    Hi there, Sorry to hear about your father, if you don’t mind helping of here I am having a few issues with this, row 11 is still missing and the cables are incomplete. could you please help me? It would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    • August 2, 2013 at 8:35 am

      Row 11 was an error. There isn’t missing steps, just a miscount of rows while writing the pattern. Sorry about that. Can you tell me where you are having trouble with the cables? I will do my best to walk you through it. 🙂
