Into the Desert

The chart is confusing/inaccurate: every round with cabling should be followed by a round in the established pattern of knits and purls. (do not need extra rounds following rounds 1, 13, 14, 24, or 25)

Additionally, instead of moving the BoR marker, I added another marker between stitches 6 and 7 for the offset section, rounds 16-22)

(i did have to rip back and restart after the ribbing when I realized the cabling did not look like the photo, and that the note about “wrong side rows” was an instruction for “rounds following a cabled round”!)

Two extra rows before sleeve separation

April 29, 2021

Sleeve: pick up 7 underarm stitches, knit 7 pattern repeats plus 5 rounds counter should read 6/8


Ended up a little shorter than pattern calls for, maybe 1/4 – 1/2 inch, but I was worried about running out of yarn! Used almost the whole skein.

Have not (yet) blocked – fits close if brim is folded over, slouchy if not.

Super Simple (Tarot) Card Pouch

Had several attempts to figure out sizing and a good caston for the additional stitches for the body.

Final version cast on 10 stitches, increase to 20 stitches.

Buttonhole row: sp1, k7, k2tog, yo x2, k2tog, k8

Flap length about 3 inches

Added 22 stitches for a 42 stitch tube for the body. About 4-6 rows of garter (one attempt, the garter section was too long for the buttonhole to be secured in the stockinette)

Body length is about 5.25 inches. I think it would have been nice with a decrease row (or two?) before the kitchener finish.


64 st size is a bit large so I’m doing 2×2 rib in place of stockinette on the instep

Fish kiss heel starting after instep of row 3, repeat 13

That was too short! Ripped back heel and picked back one round to get a clean restart.

Take 2 of heel after instep of row 6, repeat 13
