Re: snapdragon soaker

Yomama the reason you use a smaller needle is the waistband will stretch with wear and tighter stitches retain their shape better. It will still be functional with a drawstring but not as snug fitting as time goes on.

Re: snapdragon soaker

Not yet but I will definately pick some up! Seems to make a lot more sense than buying so many different circs as I will need the dpn for the cuffs anyways, right? Have been scared and intimitaded by them but have learned so much lately that I am ready to take the plunge! Thanks again!

Re: snapdragon soaker

Ug, I think I found out where I went wrong, after I binded off I continued to knit and purl back and forth all the way around and not stop after so many stitches, how many should there be for the flap on the large? I don't remembering seeing on the pattern where it says to only knit so many. It has been days since I've pick it up due to frustration and being super busy.

Re: snapdragon soaker

43 stitches for a total of 44 on your needle with the stitch you had left after binding off. The large is the numbers in green in the parenthesis for each specific count.

I understand the frustration, I've been there many times! Before you frog the whole thing, there's a video on knittinghelp.com that shows you how to insert a circ into your work so that you only unravel to that needle so you could insert the needle above where you BO stitches and then just start over there.
