Rogue Update #3

I just finished grafting my hood! Very fun, and not too hard at all....TA-DA!

yeah baby! Posted by Picasa

Grafting in pattern works how I expected it to work, and to make my life easier (and because I'm a dork) I made a little chart to follow so I didn't mess up. In the spirit of giving a little back when I've gained to much from all you other knitters out there, I wrote it up to share in case someone else doesn't feel like figuring it out on their own (I know I wouldn't have if something like this had been out there). Its just a plain old text file, but it gets the point across. You can get it here. Hoping to get the sleeves on this baby and get her blocking tomorrow.

Wow! You're grafting is wonderful! I'm so impressed. I'm very bad a grafting--if I ever make this sweater I'm going to ask you for that file! That part of the pattern is the one thing that is scary for me.

(I think I have yarn for Rogue, but I haven't swatched yet. So I'm either going to make it very soon or not very soon at all!)

Another Rogue-alonger sends her thanks for the cheat-sheet. I've only swatched & am still trying to figure out if I really like my chosen yarn, but I've printed your guidelines & will refer to them when I get there.

Thank you so much. I will be starting soon and will need all the help I can get!

I just wanted to say thank-you for this cheat sheet. Believe it or not, I've never grafted live stitches before (I always went the cast-off and sew-up route), and this really helped me get the cables on the hood of my Rogue grafted together.

Now if I could just get the live-stitches-to-edging grafting figured out, I'd have have it made. *g*

(I know it works pretty much like a straight Kitchener stitch, I just haven't been able to make it work, yet)

Anyway, thank-you! This really helped.

Thanks so much for posting this grafting file. It worked great! (even for a left hander). My grafting doesn't look quite as pretty as yours, but it's close.
