problems with arisaig lace

by ysoldateague October 25, 2005


I’ve had a few comments left by people having problems centering the lace pattern. To be completely perfectly honest most of these questions have confused me. I’ve had another look at the charts – and there doesn’t seem to be a problem. But I’ll do my best to help. One thing to make sure is that a YO (yarn over) does NOT involve knitting a stitch – you just bring the yarn to the front and work the next stitch as directed. Bringing the yarn to the front and then knitting a stitch would definitely through everything off. In row 15 the sl, k2tog, psso is a double derease that turns the middle three sts in between the yarn overs from the previous right side row into 1. If directions are confusing me I find it easiest to figure out what to do by comparing my knitting to a photo – there is a close up scan of a swatch of the lace with the pattern – looking at that might help.
I’m aware I’m not helping much but if you post photos of your knitting and more specific questions I’ll see what I can come up with.

good luck

We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.

We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.

A little less invisible

This post first appeared on Whitney’s own blog and she kindly allowed us to share it with a wider audience. It has truly brought me so much joy to see knitters making and wearing their Joy mitts and, via a knitting project, feeling seen and visible. I know that Whitney’s experiences of what it means to choose to be visibly bi would resonate with many of you. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us Whitney.

Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.

Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
