How do I make a bobble k1 yfwd k1 twice =5 how do I knit into 1 stitch


K1 Yarn forward K1, K1Yarn forward K1 all into the next one stitch. This will make 5 stitches out of one on the right pin. I would then slip, one at a time is easier, those five back onto your left pin and knit them back onto the right pin. Knit these five stitches on the right pin (that you have just created out of 1 stitch) all together which will bring you back to the original stitch. Lots of different ways to make this stitch. Don't forget that by putting your Yarn fwd (nearest to your body) then knitting a stitch it will make one of your five. Some patterns say yon or Yarn over needle. Exactly the same stitch. Hope I haven't made this too confusing. It's a fiddly stitch but just practice.

What size needles for bulky/12py wool?


It depends on your project. You need the size needle that will give you the stitch width and stitch length called for in the pattern. The pattern calls for a specific gauge, so you'll need to try out different needles, knitting a swatch on each needle size, and counting the number of stitches across and down to match the pattern specification. Does the pattern not give you a needle size? Needles come in either straight or circular in all various sizes as long as you stay within the same brand needle. (Needle brands differ from one to another, so try to stay within only one brand.) So a straight needle size 6 should be the same size as a circular needle size 6 (of the same brand).

However, although it may call for a specific size needle, you will still need to knit some test swatches because knitters usually knit looser or tighter, so one needs to adjust the needle size to accommodate those differences, ie someone who knits tightly may get 8 stitches to an inch, but a loose knitter may get only 6 stitches. But if the pattern says to cast on 48 stitches in for row 1, that means the 8 stitch gauge will yield a project that measures 6 inches wide (48/8=6). But a 6 stitch gauge will yield a project of 8 inches wide (48/6=8). The result would be one project will be 2 inches wider than the other.

But that is only half of the problem as you would still need to measure the number of rows per inch to get the length of the project. If there are more rows to the inch than specified, a garment with say an armhole that may be too small. If there are fewer rows to an inch, the result may be an armhole that is way to big.

Be very careful with your pattern and yarn selection. You will be much more successful if you stick to the number ply and yarn weight specified in the pattern, ie if the pattern calls for 2-ply 2 oz yarn, there may be some particularly difficult issues with substituting a 4-ply 4 oz. yarn. You may end up with a project that will not fit. For instance, you wouldn't want to use a heavier yarn to knit a baby garment. Baby garments usually call for baby yarn which is a specific ply and weight.

What do yon and yfrn mean in a knitting pattern?


yon is usually Yarn On (or over) Needle. This is a yarn over between a purl and a knit stitch. (After the purl stitch, keep the working yarn in front of the needle. Then place the right needle into the next stitch so that the right needle is behind the left needle in the stitch. Wind the yarn around the needle and pull the loop through.)

yfrn is a Yarn foward and round the needle. This is a similar yarn over to the yon but is a little larger. The difference is that the yarn over is done after a knit stitch and before a purl stitch. After the knit stitch, bring the yarn in front of the needle. Wrap the yarn anti-clockwise around the right needle so that the yarn is again at the front of the work. Place the right needle in the front of the next stitch on the left needle. Then do a normal purl stitch.

You can see some videos and still photos here: http://www.stitcharena.com/library/hand-knitting/yfwd-yfrn-yrn-and-yon/ .

I hope this helps.

What does knit over mean


Read the pattern again. You may be doing short rows. Buy a more detail knitting book. If you can go to Knit and Crochet Today it's a tv show that has a website they have experts in knitting and crocheting. Sure there is a demo or someone you can ask to explain in detail. I think the show comes on Thursday in Chicago but its once a week on cable/satellite on pbs.
