I got an email that the pattern was updated but it doesn't tell me what was changed. I have made the pattern. I want to know what the changes were. PLEASE TELL ME. I want to make notations on my pattern. I really don't want to figure out on my own what changes were made.

I'm so sorry! When I made the update, Craftsy didn't allow me to state WHAT the update was. Phooey. It's simply an addition of an alternate button placket on the very last page. :)

Thank you for letting me know. I ended up at my local knitting shop and they helped me figure out how to get the button placard completed. So perhaps the new one is easier. All worked out well though. The hood was perfect for winter weather, wearing a fleece hat under it for softness and complete warmth.

I've got the hood done and joined at the back as per instructions. Now I'm trying to pick up the 118 stitches as the pattern says, but I can't get the stitches on the needle. Maybe I bound off too tight? I didn't think that I did, but.... Can I possibly use smaller needles to start off with and transfer to the bigger needles?

I'm confused on the directions. Do you start with casting on 20 stitches or 148 stitches. (In the box that says gauge swatch, it says to cast on 20, and then to work in cable pattern for 28 rows?) Not sure what the cable pattern is?

I really liked the hood. As I read through the instructions I decided to knit it starting from the front and working backward so I could join the back with a seamless bind off. It worked great! The only thing I would possible change for next time is having the cables all go one direction so they join correctly in the back. I also changed the cables from 4 to 6 stitches, space in between down to 2 stitches, as I was working with a multi colored yard and I did not like the way it looked on the purl side. Sadly I did not get any photos of it as I made the first one as a gift and it was sent off as soon as it was completed. Thank you for the pattern!

Cabling is not hard, You just move x number of stitches to a place holder (cable needle or even a DPN), move it out of the way (back or front, depending on the cable), work the next x number of stitches, and then bring the stitch holder back so you can work those stitches.

I think I started wrong. Is this knitted in the round or flat on the circular needles?

Kalurah Hudson on craftsy.com

It is knit flat, in rows. You knit back and forth on the circular. A long circular is needed because there's too many stitches to fit onto a straight needle.

You have to pick the stitches up where the plankets end. I did the same thing at first. One you fix that it will all fall in place. Look at the photos on the web page again. Good luck. It is actually pretty simple once you fix that. Its a beautiful project. I love it.

can someone explain the following instruction:

Winterspride on craftsy.com

What I understand from that instruction is that when you have 1 more stitch to bind off, instead of knitting the next stitch and passing that last bind off stitch over, you will simply slip 1 and pass that last bind off stitch over, leaving you with 20 stitches left to knit. I hope that helps.

:) I am not sure what problems you are having with the buttonhole instructions. If it is the Cable Cast On you would probably be happier watching a video showing how it is done than trying to read it and imagine it in your head. I haven't gotten that far yet ...am just finishing the ribbing around the hood. But there are several ways to knit buttonholes and you might find one that works more easily for you. If you go to youtube and put "cable cast on" or "knitting buttonholes" into the search box you can watch videos that show you how. Actually you can watch one and before you know it you have spent an obscene amount of hours watching one after another hahaha! I know this because I do it all the time ;)

a cable cast on a a specific way of casting on stitches:
Personally, I just knit on 3 stitches, then continued with the rest of the row.
Cable cast-on
Step 1: Start with a slip knot on your left hand needle.
Step 2: Knit on one stitch (work steps 2 and 3 from the knit-on cast on to do this).
Step 3: Knit between the two stitches on your needle.
Step 4: Slip the new stitch from the right to the left hand needle.

The length of the cable (24" or 36") dos not matter, they just suggest a cable length for the number of stitches you are dealing with. a 16" would be too short, a 36" is technically longer than needed to hold the stitches, but if that's what you have, feel free to use it.
There are a lot of stitches and it is a heavier yarn, so doing this on a straight needle would be cumbersome and heavy; in my opinion.

Hello. I have a question on the beginning of the pattern. Row 1 states: (K4, P4) to end. K4. With a cast on of 148 stitches, the (K4, P4) can only be done 18 times which leaves 4 stitches at the end of the row. Are these the 4 stitches for K4?
I have done the pattern as described above and it is not producing a rib edge (if that's what the goal is). Am I doing this right? Please help! Thanks.

I made this a couple of years ago. It knit up fast and was easy. Living in Minnesota I wanted something warm and this keeps the chill out very nicely. One change that I made was to knit some eyelets under the hood fold and threaded a matching cord with pompoms on the ends so that I can tie it up tighter when the wind is really blowing.

That's a really good idea. I thought about doing the same but mine is a gift for my daughter and I didn't want to mess it up. I didn't leave eyelets but maybe a twisted cord would be smooth enough to work through the rib.
