    CONGATULATIONS TO THE NEW PARENTS AND NEW GRANDMA GOOSE. WELCOME TO THE WORLD LITTLE ANGEL. Dear Goose, What wonderful news. I can not blame you for spending time with the new addition to the family. A child brings love that is so special, strong and unique.A child gives you the best present possible, a family.what is your granddaughter called? It would be wonderful to see a picture of her if her mum doesn't mind. As for my Hatty the elephant, thank you again for the assistance. I have now completed it, well almost i just have to put it together. I am terrified that i will mess this stage up but i am taking my time and watching many videos so hopefully i will not mess up. But i will probably back for so advice. Take good care Many thanks Segtree.

    Thank you very much Goose, i have a much better result. Its taken me a awhile as i end up trying to pull back just to that row but then total lost some stitches so i undid the whole thing and i am now back to where i was. But again i am really unhappy with rows 31-36. I know i have asked about them before but when i look at the picture of the elephant it does match up with the pattern. My problemis this- rows 31-36:rep Rows 29-30 three times. Work in yarn A only. Now at this moment my front leg has the top where the leg begins is peach then blue The elephant picture has peach where leg begins then a blue stripe,peach stripe,blue stripe then one more peach stripe is the very last. Then you have a block of blue which is underneath the leg. If i do tne next batch of rows in yarn a which is blue it will be odd to the picture. Please could someone explain what im doing?????? I thought i may just work out all this pattern stuff but oh my! -all knitters,Crocheters deserves inmense respect and honour for all you make and understand. Please if someone could help me i will be very gratefully. I cant give up.!

    Hi all I am rather unhappy with the resut of row 27 of hatty the elephant of lets knit magazine issue 76. The row pattern states: p10, cast one st. P to end. 20 sts. Ive done this but its left quite a un natural hole in the knitting. Is this because i casted off one st over two? Or should i cast off one st over one stitch? Many thanks for your help in advance.

    Hello to all. I knew i would be back but i guess that's the joys of being a new- ish kniter. I am once again stuck or rather confused about what the pattern for hatty the elephant in issue 76 of lets knit magazine is telling me to do. It says: Rows 31-36 rep rows 29-30 three times. Rows 29 is p and row 30 is k. My first thought is to knit this- 31 p 32 k 33 p 34 k 35 p 36 k but is my thought right? I have had to restart this elephant so many time but i am determined to complete this elephant as this will be my first ever knitted toy made by me! So please could someone help me? I am truly gratefully for your time and help.

    Dear GOOSE THANK YOU VERY MUCH for our time and for posting the video i am extremely gratefully. I hae now successfully solved the issue of the M1 stitch, i was putting the stitch on back to front but after a lengthy practice its almost perfect. Is there any possibility that you could suggest another video explanin the cast off stitch in the middle of a row PLEASE?! I am now stuck on this- row 22 k9.cast off two sts. Knit to end, i am still on the same pattern. I truly apperciate your warm welcome to the forums. Thank you again. Segtree Loves knitting and has the determination to learn! -Hi Segtree and welcome to the forum. The main reason you get a hole is when you just knit the stitch that you have picked up. You need to knit into the back of it. Have a look at this video and let me know how you get on. Just ignore the way she holds the yarn as this is a different method of knitting but follow her instructions

    Hi, i am incredibly desperate for help with the m1 (make one) knitting stitch, i have tried to do it in different ways via a number of videos found on the web but each time i do it leaves a huge whole in the pattern even though the instructions said it wouldn't leave a hole and it also pulls up th knitting rows so my knitting is unlevel. I am trying desperately to get passed row 3 in the Hatty the elephant yarn kit in issue 76 in lets knit magazine. I am a visual learner as i have a chronic illness that has made some part of my brain interpretative words in a mashed up way, so i struggle with most things. Please, please i reallywould like to make my first knitted toy. Many thanks
