I am a bit disappointed that I cannot download the pattern onto my iPhone. Is this just me or is this a standard deficiency? Is Safari the issue or it is the template/program used to show the pattern? Is this a standard issue in all of Cratsy's downloaded patterns? I am new here.
Thanks for asking the same question I had about the button holes. The pattern did not describe this well at all. Designer - please be very explicit in your instructions . I'm a beginner and the lack of instructions or clarification about the button holes was very frustrating for someone just starting to knit. Thank you.
The instructions for the buttonholes are very clear. In all knitting patterns it is standard to see "K" for knit, "YO" for yarn over and "K2tog" for knit 2 stitches together. Many designers write their patterns assuming the knitter knows these standards already. But I apologize for not including a guide to these abbreviations in the pattern. I'll work on adding that to the PDF and uploading it to the site for your convenience. Until then, here is a simplification of the buttonhole row instructions:Yarn over your needle, knit 2 stitches together, knit 5 stitches, (repeat this 3 times), continue with the rest of row. Hope this helps!Kalurah
FYI Kalurah: I don't think she has problems with your knitting abbreviations (it certainly is us knitters responsibility to know the abbreviations). I guess it just wasn't clear that it was all done on the same row. No worries though as someone else explained it to us. And thank you for providing such a delightful pattern! I'm going to teach my grade 11 Fashion class how to knit next month and this pattern is perfectly ideal! Thanks again!! :)
i dont understand the button whole instructions. The line which gives the way to do the button whole - do I then repeat it 3 more times? If so, how many rows must I knit between each buttonhole? The pattern doesn't specify this (or does it?). HELP PLEASE!
The buttonholes are all worked on the one row, the bit you repeat 3 times is in brackets. (YO, K2tog, K5) That makes 3 buttonholes, and then the last bit makes one more, so you make 4 buttonholes. Hope that makes sense!
Thanks so much for explaining that Lyzzle! You're a peach.
How many to cast on n how long???
You have to go through and purchase the pattern to be able to download the full pattern. It's free but you have to go through the purchase to get the full pattern. Took me a minute or two to figure that out!
Yeah, not a lot of detail. Please add more information.
love the cowl! thanks for the share- how many cast on stitches? how long to knit, and where and how do the buttons holes go in?
Free what, you dont give any instructions like how many do you cast on, and how long is it. Please send more info. I could guess, but its not really how I would prefer to do it.
Ditto, just want to know how many stitches to cast on
Glad I am not alone on this . Thought I was doing something wrong.. Guess we have to figure it out ourselfs
Hello all!This is indeed a free pattern but the instructions are not given on the main pattern section. It is a PDF document. Simply click on the orange button that says, "Download Pattern". All the information you need is there in the PDF. If you are a new knitter and need some help with abbreviations please feel free to email me. My email address is on the PDF. :)Happy knitting!Kalurah
