It is giving me a headache.


This is the knitting project that I and doing at the moment. It is in 4ply and has 7 colours.

I like something to keep me occupied when I am knitting and I don’t like knitting loads and loads of stocking stitch. I get bored. So this looked like the prefect thing to knit.

First off you knit the centre front including the front welt. Then you knit the back welt by itself. Then the left centre back and then the right centre back. So far so good.

Next you knit the left front and back and sleeve all in one. I was going great guns until the pattern read knit 5 rows. OK did that. Next row was a bobble row only the bobbles would be on the wrong side. Where did I go wrong? Don’t know.

Solution:- Cast on the right side today and knit to the same part of the pattern. Then whatever I do on the left side I do on the right side and my sleeves will match. I am not having bobbles on the wrong side. Would you????




As you can see from the pictures the pattern has no repeat and looks totally random. I am not about to give up. Will let you see the finished item sooner or latter.

Goodness, yes, that could be a tough one. Have you considered there is an error in the written pattern? Just one number off (5 rows instead of 6) can mess up the whole pattern and put that bobble on the wrong side. I hope you and that pattern find peace soon.

You've picked very pretty colors for your sweater.

ohmigod this looks too complicated for me. Bravo for you to stick with it! Can you just push the bobbles so the pop up on the other side???

I'm sure you'll get it all figured remind me of my mom in wanting to tackle a difficult knitting project. She was like that. I love your colors and can't wait to see it done!

It looks incredibly complicated but seems to be turning out well. I admire your talent!

You lost me on this one but it looks great anyway.

Looks like that was a complicated project! Just unravelled a wool sweater I knitted 3 years ago so I can knit something else...

Are the bobbles too big to pull through--cottonreel
