Re: Patterns for Prayer Shawls for Men

Many of the shawl ministry websites discuss rectangular wraps as well as triangular shawls. I think a wrap would be appropriate for a man. This website recommends making it at least 26 inches wide and a minimum of 68 to 72 inches long. http://www.olsorrows.org/index.php?section=shawl I would suggest...

Re: Cowl Help

It looks like a two part pattern. I can see that the stitches in the hood and the shoulders are going in different directions. The hood was probably knit first and then the shoulders were made by picking up stitches along one edge.

Re: Greetings from Wisconsin

Bernat Soft Boucle is a size 5 or Bulky weight yarn. Any cowl pattern using Bulky or Chunky weight yarn should work with your boucle. Look for Chunky or Bulky in the yarn name and/or description, or a picture of a skein of yarn with the number 5 on it in the list of supplies. Be careful not to confu...

Re: New to sit have questions

I forgot to tell you that there are two other sites where The Daily Knitter and The Daily Crocheter also offer free patterns.

http://www.dailyknitter.com/day.php

http://www.dailycrocheter.com/day.php

Neither of these require logging in and the patterns offered are different from those found here.

Re: How do I get friends on both knit and crochet

This is a forum, so you don't "friend" people like on Facebook. You just post your questions or comments and see who responds. Right now, this site is a little thin on activity. When it first started a lot of people were posting, but then spammers and junk posters advertising non-needlewor...

No, it does not come in your email. You have to log into this site and click "Free Pattern of the Day". Then you will have the choice of clicking for the crochet pattern, the knit pattern, all the crochet patterns from the last two weeks, or all the knit patterns from the last two weeks. (...

Re: Please help me with this wrap pattern!

You're doing great for a novice with an advanced pattern. Your questions show you have a good understanding of pattern reading and a pretty good idea of what you need to do. Short rows are designed to give extra fabric in a section of a garment. They are commonly used in knitting the heel of socks a...

Re: Help My stitches are too tight!!!

If your chain stitches are too tight, try using a larger hook just for your chain row. Usually going one or two sizes larger will be enough to make the stitches lie flat and not bow. If your chain stitches are too loose, try using a smaller hook just for your chain row. Usually one or two sizes smal...

Re: Knitting problem

Having never seen this direction before, I did a search for patterns like yours. According to what I read, you just want to pull a yarn loop through this stitch as if you had cut the the yarn. This will cause the last stitch to tighten up as if it were fastened off. The remaining loop then becomes t...
