Couple of questions

What do you all think about using Lamb's Pride Worsted yarn to make this project? Would it work up well?

Also, I was reading over the directions for the project and at the very beginning of the pattern (for the back), Row 2 reads "Work sts as they appear." What exactly does this mean? I'm a beginner knitter and need a little more instruction than that. Can anyone help me?

Hi, Anita,

"Work stitches as they appear" means you knit the knits and purl the purls. Hope that helps!

About the pattern... "Knit stitches as they appear" basically means knit the purls and purl the knits. If it helps (esp. on the 2nd row where you can't see what they're supposed to be very well), try writing the pattern for the first row in reverse (start from the end and go backwards, and write k for p and p for k). If you're doing the largest size, I've already done that, so you can email me at sagebrush at gmail dot com and I'll copy them into an email for you.

Work stitches as they appear means just that...work them as they "appear"...so that means a knit stitch will appear a certain way and a purl stitch will appear a certain way. When you turn your work around, the knit stitches will be smooth and the purl stitches will have a bump...that's your guide on what to do. To see what knit stitches will look like...go here: http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/knitting/stitch_pages/kn_knit.html To see what purl stitches will look like...go here: http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/knitting/stitch_pages/kn_purl.html Hopefully that makes sense. Once you know what knit looks like and purl looks like, that's all you do...knit them as they appear.

Hi Anita, I think Lamb's Pride Worsted would make a lovely ribby. Joanne is also using it, although I don't see any comments on it - her blog is at: http://jstrizzy.typepad.com/blog/
