Knitting Graph Paper | The Knitting Site Have you ever tried to design a knitting chart using commercially available graph paper, only to knit it up and find the proportions are all wrong? This is because knitting stitches are not square but commercially available graph paper is! The answer is my special charting paper. The ‘squares’ are rectangular just like knitting stitches. In addition every 5 stitches are marked off with a heavier line so it’s very easy to count where you are when following a pattern. I have created 2 different ratios to accommodate most knitting situations. A ratio of 4:5 is where 4 stitches is the same length as 5 rows (or 40 stitches = 50 rows). A ratio of 2:3 is where 2 stitches is the same length as 3 rows which is impossible to measure accurately so use 20 stitches = 30 rows. Most knitting is nearer the 4:5 ratio, but knitting double and knitting with very thick yarn could be nearer to the 2:3 ratio. The files are .pdf files readable with Adobe Acrobat.

Puffed Daisy Hexagon Season's Greetings! I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line! It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet! I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time... Of course, my itchy fingers have needed something smaller and quicker to create between marathon rounds so some experimenting was in order.

Anyway, I'm obsessed with these at the moment, so enough typing, I'm getting back to bobbling. xx

It uses one skein of yarn, and can be knitted up in one night, making it a perfect and affordable last-minute present! It’s knit in the round, so there’s no seaming at the end, and it’s really warm and cozy. Supplies: 1 skein, Bernat Roving yarn, in a light grey Size 13 circular needles (hat sized length) Darning needles, for weaving in ends Instructions: 1. 2. 3. February 2011 Well, now that I've depressed us all with that photo of the inside of our torn-apart hot water heater shed, I'm happy to report that all is back in order today--neat, tidy, and shipshape--and looking like nothing ever happened. It's too dark out still for me to get a photo of the little shed, all restored and looking much better, but it is so. We have water, blessed running water. We have it in hot, and we have it in cold. We don't have any yet to the back bathroom (this house has multiple additions, built on over time, and that back bathroom is pretty darned far from where I sit in the original front room of the oldest part of the adobe), but that will come once the plumber and his good men have made sure all their customers have running water of one sort or another. In the meantime, I've been reading a book about people who lived in far more ancient adobe structures in this part of the world with no running water at all.
Picking Up Stitches Picking up stitches means that, with a knitting needle or crochet hook and a new strand of yarn, you dip into and out of the edge of the knitted fabric at hand, creating new loops. These new loops will serve as the foundation for a collar, button band, sleeve or baby bootie instep. The only two things you need to focus on for picking up stitches along a straight edge are the two S’s: side and spacing. Picking up stitches for a sloped edge (such as for a neck) takes just a little more care than for a straight edge, and most of that care comes in the spacing.
