Default Help with berry pattern/stitch

Hi everyone,

I sure hope someone can help me. I'm knitting this sweater

http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visopp..._id=28&lang=us

and have knit the body of the sweater and the sleeves. Now I'm ready
to knit the yoke, and will put the sleeves in place and work it all at
once. My problem is the berry pattern. I am totally confused as to
how to do the:

work 3 sts in 1 st as follows: P1, 1 YO, P1
and the
P3, lift first st over third st and lift second st over third st = 1
st left

Do you think I'm going to have to make a trip into my LYS?

Thanks for any help you can give...Linda D. in B.C., Canada

P1, YO, P1 is making two stitches in one, and means just what it says. In
the next stitch purl 1, YO, purl 1, an increase of two stitches.

and the
P3, lift first st over third st and lift second st over third st = 1
st left


Purl the next 3 stitches, looking at the P3 on the right needle from left to
right, insert the tip of the left needle into the first purl. That is the
one fartherest from the tip of the needle With the tip of the left needle,
lift this stitch (1) over the last stitch on the right needle (3), do the
same thing with the remaining stitch (2)

You have just decreased to two stitches you added with the p1, yo, p1.

This video shows how to lift the stitches, but instead lifting two at one
time, you will only be lifting one.

The only advice I would add to that of DA is to take a separate pair
of needles and ball of yarn and make a test swatch of the new stitch.

Thank you, so much for taking the time to reply to my question.

I did have a "light bulb" moment yesterday afternoon, and set up a
test swatch, like Mary suggested. I cast on 36 stitches just like the
chart shows for the pattern repeat, which included the pattern repeat
on the chart, plus 12 stitches for the garter stitch border on the two
fronts. Somehow or another I lost 2 stitches, so have pulled that out
and will try again today.

This is such a great group!

thanks again...Linda D. in B.C., Canada

You probably missed a couple of YOs, a very easy thing to do.
Garn studio has some very nice patterns, but they seem to loose something
in the translation. Having charts does make it easier to figure out what
they mean.

Linda you had the Best Advice , !!!!
now if i may , a little advice . make yourself a Knitting copybook. in
which you will note , Date of project , chosen material [ name of wool/
cotton etc,,,]
GUAGUGE !!!!!!!!
write down X st of pattern with Needle number ! = Y cm....
i also mention `troubles ` i had while working !!!!
Project sizes ??? =cm = number of stitiches .
Any information worth remembering , over the YEARS i knit my various
work books have been a good Information library .

For years I did not do this until Noreen talked to me about how
important it was. *I had to rework every pattern for my family friends
every time I make that a hat, socks, sweater or what ever. *Even so I
was using the same pattern.

We do have a great sight here Mirjam, don't we.


I am glad Dennis that Noreen convinced you to do it ? By the way
anyone heard from her lately ?????
having my copybooks has saved me hours of work later ,as well as
having a Measure -paper for ideas ,,,,
Yes this is a great site Dennis ...

Yes, indeed I had missed a YO. I think I must have just purled into
the stitch instead of P1, YO, P1 into the same stitch, so lost 2
stitches.

Sunday, I set up a new sample, and have the pattern worked out...so
simple when you know how

thanks, Linda D. in B.C., Canada
