  9. Your lilac blossoms baby set does not mention how much yarn is used in making this project. I want to make this as soon as I find out the amount and type of yarn used.

  15. Hello, I found your pattern for "Girl's All-in-One Sleeveless Top" and would love to do it in size 6-8. Now on Ravelry, the largest size is 4-6, but you mention that you would publish the patter for a larger size. If so, may I have access to it? Thank you so much for reply to me at nicoleplamondon@icloud.com.

    Thanks

    1. I've just looked at the pattern and my best guess is that the kfb at the end of row 3 should actually be a k1. That would solve your stitch count issue and match all the other pattern rows too. Hope that helps :)

  31. Hi Marianna,
    I am knitting your self design Melika vest for a 6 month old .
    On Row 36 it says ...
    S1, K4, P10, K11,P10, K6
    When we have only cast 41 stitches how can we knit 6 in the end.
    Also the border will not match.
    Is it a typing mistake?
    Thank you very much Linda for solving my problem for the Rosie Ruffle Hat .
    Atleast someone replied to my comment after 5 months.
    When I will knit a second hat will I will remember your suggestion.
    Once again thanks a lot Linda.

  34. Hi, I really need some help here. I'm trying to knit the lovely little lilac blossom dress but I've re-started 3 times now thinking it was me doing something wrong, but I think it must be the pattern. On the yrn I'm getting holes that don't show on the picture and by row 16 I already have far too many stitches (126). Should the k2 really read kt2tog? Please help as it's driving me mad!

  35. I am at a loss regarding the base of the little lilac blossom sweater. I did the "Next Row: Knit 26sts, cast off 6sts, knit 47sts, cast off 6sts, k25sts"

    I do not understand this part "Next Row: Knit 26sts from the right front, 26sts from the first sleeve, 48sts from the back, 26sts from the second sleeve and 26sts from left front (152 stitches)" An I suprose to knit back and forth 26 stitches and then pick up stitcheson the other sid of the created arm hole? It doesn't state to pick up stitches or to cast off and start again.
    I'm sure I did something wrong.I can usually figure this stuff out.
    Thanks for your help. Laura

  36. Without looking at the specific pattern, it sounds like you should have two sleeves worked and held on stitch holders, each sleeve having 26 stitches, prior to working the main body of the garment. You would knit across the stitches of the right front, first sleeve, back, second sleeve and finally the left front. You do not need to pick up any stitches from armhole shapings. You then complete the knitting across the 152 stitches and cast off as per the pattern instructions. The sleeve and side seam are then sewn in a straight line from cuff to hem of garment, thus forming the armholes. I hope that helps 😊

  37. I believe your Hugg boots are being posted on Ravelry by someone known as Erika. I was so disappointed that I did not follow through with the inquiry to see if she is charging or not. They look identical to me, with a double rib at the top. They were posted as a Hat and bootie set I think. I love your patterns and respect you for what you have done and hared with all of us. Good luck. Faith (AKA Rob Schleiden)
