so cute, love it.
The instructions for making the bootlace are completely nonsensical. Either list spinning as a required skill, or give adequate instructions for how in the world you managed to spin the yarn together and get them to stay. (And did you spin two strands together as you say in the instructions, or four, like it appears in the pictures?)Of course, if anybody else managed to figure it out, I'm all ears! If I don't hear anything by the time I finish the second bootie, I'm just going to crochet the laces.
The information did not give the type of needle or the needle size.If I had know that dp needles were needed I would not have purchased this pattern. I also found the wording very difficult to follow. After struggling along to the place where stitches were moved to different needles...I was lost and gave up. I do not think this should be rated a difficulty of 2 and the information provided should include the needle requirements before a person decides to purchase the pattern,
I am an experienced knitter and find this pattern very hard to read. Really wish I had seen all the comments before purchasing it. Not sure that I will bother trying to knit it
It does eventually make sense if you work through it. I think I've resolved just about all of the kinks on the first one, and I think the second one will be a bit smoother, as I seem to have grasped the construction underlying the project. I might be able to answer any specific questions if you have any, since the author seems to have abandoned us.
It's hard to tell which words in the pattern are superfluous, so I'm going to try translating the second row: is it Edge stitch (drop), Purl, M1, Purl 13 (17,21), Purl, M1, Purl (Total = 19 (23,27))?I'm not sure if you are counting the (dropped) Edge stitches or the M1's in your total count, can you please help?Also, I would also like to know what weight (size, not amount) of yarn you used, as this critical information does not yet appear to be given anywhere in the pattern, description, or comments. The amount of the yarn is nice to know for planning purposes, but does nothing to help me determine if I have the right yarn; and the composition is completely irrelevant and I will be ignoring it.
Now that I've played around with the pattern, it looks like it should actually be Edge stitch (drop), Purl, M1, Purl 13 (17,21), **M1, Purl 2** (Total = 19 (23,27))However, now I'm having trouble with building up from the sole. I just spotted where the pattern changed which needles were designated 1, 2, 3, 4 (I'm actually using circular needles, I guess we'll see if that will work with the pattern when I get a little farther), but I'm uncertain from the pictures whether I'm supposed to somehow include the last stitch from the sole in the pickup, or attach a fresh yarn.
So I see I need a US needle size 4 or 5 (UK 9-8) but the yarn I am unsure of. Is this fingering yarn, worsted, chunky??
Same problem as below, What size needles and what weight wool
Dear Natalija Lovely Booties but I need a translation to British! Can't understand the instructions at all. I have double knitting wool so should I use it twice and size 8/9 (UK) needles seem huge? Thank you
Ive looked at this pattern severaltimes and I just can not follow it. I am an experience knitter. It is not written out as a normal pattern can anyone help
I'm having the same problem :( I'd also like to know the guage
