  1. Thanks Kim, I posted a question on this topic and then found this thread. I think I'd like to try both. For those who are looking for knooking supplies, Mary Maxim has them online http://www.marymaxim.ca/catalogsearch/result/?q=knook
  2. I started this sweater ages ago and got stuck on the sleeve. The instructions are clear as mud so far as I'm concerned and I ended up with a sleeve about 6 inches long. And it's supposed to be a full-length sleeve for my arm. Here are the directions: Make 36 chain. Row 1 (WS): 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook, 1 sc in each ch to end. [35 sts.] Row 2 (RS): 1 ch, q sc in each sc to end. Row 2 forms single crochet. Work 13 more rows sc. Inc row (RS): 1 ch, 1 sc in 1st sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each sc to last 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in last sc. [37 sts.] (Now here's the part I don't understand): Cont in sc, inc in this way at each end of 11 foll 6th rows. [59 sts.] Work 3 rows. The next instructions are for shaping the top, so I should have the full length of the sleeve by this point. This pattern is the Zip-Up Jacket from So Simple Crochet by Melody Griffiths, Creative Homeowner, 2006. Thanks for any help you can provide. Laura Of course I drive a pickup truck. What kind of woman do you think I am?
