I am knitting a “Hobbes” pattern adaption by Ann Stiver-Balla which seems to be missing knitting directions for the arms although attaching the arms is mentioned in the finishing directions. I can not find the pattern on the website. Is it still available?

I have two skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, Boucle, 78% Mohair 13% wool 9% nylon. Each skein has 216 yds/approx.100 grams. I will be a passenger in a car for an 11 hour trip tomorrow leaving tomorrow morning. I have no idea what I can make with this, but I really need a project for the trip. Is it enough for a vest? If not a cowl? Most cowl patterns I have seen are very bulky, but this yarn is definately not bulky. Any free downloadable pattern ideas? Many thanks for any help. Paula

I am making the Classic Cable sweater on page 62 of Top Down for Toddlers. Everything is fine until I get to the end of the Marker Round where it says to knit 14 stitches for the sleeve making 108 stitches. I have 108 stitches but with respect to the marker there are not 14 stitches left. Has anyone had a problem with these directions?

you should get in touch with the designer directly. best of luck

Need a pattern for mittens..preferably with the thumb from the palm of the mitten — as opposed to coming out the side— My familly was from Norway—–so I tend to think of it as the european style for knitting mittens——

Thank you !!!!!

If you have a look on Ravelry, and use the advanced search options, I’m sure you will be able to find lots of mittens with different thumb styles.

CLAPOTIS…one of the most popular but I find it one of the most difficult to get
how did all the knitters that knit this pattern manage to download it…is it a secret?
…is it on the back of the label? …do I have to join a society …or maybe you just
have to copy it down !… by hand ?!?! ……..if you know the secret you can share
it with me ….I won’t tell a soul …t.
