Hi Lorraine. I am having a terrible time with this pattern or yarn ? I have started it over at least 10 times. I have a few questions. ON the increases, do you just increase the first 10 stitches and knit the rest in row three and then the same in all the other rows. I know there are several ways to increase , which would be the best with this yarn ? Any help is appreciated from anyone. I am not a beginner knitter.
Hi, Grndma0169...I know this yarn can be challenging. If you are referring to Row 3 of the body and head, the directions read: (K1, inc1) x 10 = 30 sts So you would knit 1 stitch and then increase the next stitch. Do this 10 times. You should then have 30 stitches on your needle, since you started with 20 stitches. To increase, simply knit into the front and the back of the stitch. This yarn is slippery, and with all the eyelashes, be sure to catch the center cord, so you don't loose the stitch. If you are referring to Row 3 of the ear, the directions read: Inc10 = 20 sts In this case, you already have 10 stitches on your needle, so to Inc10, you would increase each of the 10 stitches, so you will then have 20 stitches on your needle. In all the directions, if you see ( ) x a number, always do whatever is within the ( ) however many times the number after the x says. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact me at the email address at the bottom of the pattern. I'm sure to get your questions quicker that way. Once you get used to the eyelash yarn, it will get easier. ~Lorraine
Love this little guy. My grandson is 2 and loves monkey's. Can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning when he sees this sticking out of his stocking! Thank you for sharing this pattern.
So glad you like my Mooki pattern! I'm sure your grandson will fall in love with him! He's hard not to grab and squeeze! Enjoy!~Lorraine
