The Great Isabell Knitalong

#76

Replying to myself, because the magic of typing the question helped me answer it. I think it really is as simple as I was calling the wrong stitch “5th.”

You got it! The first stitch of the 5 you slip to the right needle will be the stitch you pick up and pull from right to left over the other 4. It creates a mirror image to the SL4R.

I love all the wips here! I had cast on right before this was announced and knit a half sleeve Petula in just over a week, such a happy knit. I love Isabell’s patterns!
It’s blocking now and I’m very much looking forward to it being dry

Thank you for this reassurance! My brain couldn’t quite get it for a sec, but that’s what mine now looks like, too. Phew. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’d just like to share an “aha” moment of appreciation for Isabell Kraemer’s design talent…anyone else notice that the M1 increases in the round preceding the openwork pattern of Bottom Line align with the center purl stitches and make a cool little teardrop in that column? :heart_eyes:

I am on row 5 of the 8. Row 1 was the most fiddly for me, but sharp pointy needles are important here. I switched my needles for this part and it made a huge difference.

Pointy needles for the win! Especially if you’re a tight knitter. I basically only use Chiaogoo red lace or HiyaHiya sharps.

Last night I hit that point where I start getting paranoid about running out of yarn. Especially hand-dyed yarn in a color that is sold out. My brain tells me that there should be sufficient yarn, but my eye does not believe it. So I started a sleeve before I finished the body, you know, just to get a sense of how fast the first sleeve eats up yarn.

I’m really enjoying my Bottom Line Pullover but have no idea how to post a photo here. Could someone please tell me how to do that? I’ve searched the FAQ’s but didn’t find it there. I’m probably just missing something.

We wanna seeee! When you hit “reply” there should be a little button on the bottom right corner of the text box that looks like a landscape picture symbol. If you push that (on your phone, at least) you’ll have the option to take a photo or choose one from your photo library.

My Bottom Line is now no longer in progress. We weren’t getting along. The pattern is great but my yarn choice wasn’t. I was using two stash cone yarns. I’ll unknit that into something else and look for another yarn and get back to it after my twin boy grand babies arrive this summer. Fraternal boy twins. Yay.
