Dear Sue

Thankyou very much for the explanation on ‘TURN’ in Bill Kings pattern all in one ‘Gold Star’.

I must have had a senior moment. When I read your reply everything was crystal clear. I am going to start on it right now.

Thankyou again.

Hi

At the bottom of page 54 where it says TO KNIT it explains what a ‘turn’ is. For this pattern after you cast on you knit 70 rows straight for the sleeve. Then comes the turn.

You need to set your carriage to HOLD. Then you bring a group of three needles to Holding Position at the opposite end to the carriage and knit four rows.

When you have the last group of three still in Working Position knit four rows. Then return the group of needles nearest the carriage from Holding Position to Upper Working Position and knit four rows until all needles are back in Working Position. Knit four rows across all needles.

This constitutes one turn and the picture in the middle at the bottom of page 55 shows what it looks like. The diagonal row of holes runs up the middle of the of the turn and you knit four more complete turns.

To finish the piece you knit 70 rows straight for the other half of the sleeve.

You will be knitting one complete sleeve and side of the garment. If you fold this piece in half along the third row of holes you will need to join the two long edges at the top and the two shorter edges for the underarm seam.

When you have knitted two of these shapes they are sewn together at the back seam to make the completed garment.

I hope this has removed some of the mystery and you are successful with your garment.

Kind regards
Sue.
