Notes

7-31-15: approximate time to cast on was the second half of the fifth Harry Potter movie and the first half of the sixth. My youngest child already likes this project. I used the cable cast on. It created a nice edge and I cannot imagine using longtail.

For German Short rows:

Advice-in pattern that are written with w&t’s, I just work to the point where it says w&t the next st, instead of wrapping the stitch I work it as normal then turn and move the stitch according to German short row instructions. And then I go from there!

Video, Video part two, Another Video

Some helpful notes from other Plucky knitters:

JRS-I used my usual long tail cast on, which meant I ended up doing it twice. I recommend placing markers ever 50 stitches at least for the cast on to help with the counting. I started with a 47” circ but then switched to a 41” -- I found the longer needle a little too cumbersome and everything fits on the smaller one.

Another word of advice-- remember to knit 4 rows before the set-up row (don’t ask)!

Daisysdragonfly - I used the cable cast on, super easy, no estimating involved. I used a 60” circular which was probably over-kill, but I didn’t lose any stiches! :) And I also have very long arms! haha

Lisav2207 - I used a long tail CO and 47” needles. However, found them to be too much to fiddle with and switched to 40”.

Bookendbees - I’m casting on right now and I’m using a 40”. I’m also placing a stitch marker every 100 stitches, to keep track. I should have probably counted every 50…I keep recounting, just to make sure. :)
