I could just sprinkle on some sugar and eat Willow right up. I mean that in the nicest way. You've done a beautiful job with this sweater mimicing the lei. Thank you for your selflessness in sharing the pattern. I've several girlfriends expecting and I just know they will adore this sweater. They all just happen to be expecting girls. I hope you are enjoying the tropical delightful surroundings of Hawaii. It has always been one of my favorite places having been blessed to spend the summer months and Christmas's of my childhood through college living there.
My husband and I honeymooned for a month in Hawaii and we continue to travel back. It really is paradise. How blessed you are to be able to enjoy it with your children. One day I hope to do the same.
I am a new knitter and I am making this as my first cardi project and I need help. Work 7 rows even Repeat last 8 rows 2x more than work until What do you mean? Hi Nicole, It means K to 3 sts before m, ssk, k2, k2tog 2X, k to end, then knit seven rows in plain stockinette, which makes eight rows total.
Then you do that whole thing again--the decreases, and then the seven rows in plain stockinette again, which makes sixteen rows total. And then you do it all one last time, making it 24 rows total. Does that make sense? Hi Nikki I am loving knitting your little cardigan. Some of your abbreviations are different to the ones used here in Australia so can you please tell me what 'pm' means? Does it mean 'place marker'. Very nice sweater ond baby!! But what do skp in the lace pattern means? Hi Nikki, I love this pattern and am working on it right now.
I've never knit a raglan sleeve and am having trouble making sense of pattern after you knit the first buttonhole row. I'm sure I'm reading it wrong I decided to knit the lace 2 pattern until I hit the 2nd marker, but the number of sts didn't end up working out at all I counted 38sts between the 2 markers, by the way. SO I'm assuming that I'm doing something wrong! Any help or clarification would be SO appreciated!! I love your patterns. Hi Melissa, You need to place a few more markers.
Go back to the paragraph where you start working on the yoke--you place a few more markers there it's easy to skip--"pm" seems like such an innocuous instruction and so there are only 15 stitches that you're working lace pattern number two across. I hope that makes sense! Wow, thank you SO much for responding so quickly. I really appreciate it!! I will go fix my error and get back to knitting up this adorable sweater.
The pattern indicates that the sleeves be knit flat, but they certainly could be knit in the round. Yoke instructions say PM k I am counting 17 for row one, you say 15 stitches in an earlier post I am counting that as 3 stitches I appreciate any help you may have to offer. This may be the nicest thing i have ever made, if i can only work this part out! The stitch count changes over the course of lace pattern 2, but it starts out as thirteen stitches--I'm not sure how you're counting it, but my count is thirteen.
I would just start knitting if I were you--it should work out. I am so in love with this pattern that I have the perfect yarn set aside and I am just itching to knit it! D You are so talented! Totally love the look of this pattern but what do you mean with the abbreviation skp in the lace 1? You slip the first stitch, knit the second, and then pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch--decreasing one stitch.
I am loving your pattern but I have lost my way a little! I am just about to start the first row of lace patter 2 a bit like the lady above but I have lost a couple of stitch markers!! I wondered if you could let me know what the stitch count and marker placement is??
I hope you can help? Thank you again for a fab pattern! Hi--I'm not sure what the stitch count is, but if you go back, it should be clear where you joined the sleeves, and the markers are placed around the sleeve join. When knitting the yoke and it says to 'Repeat the last two rows until there are 83 sts on the needles, working a buttonhole row every 10 rows' - which two rows are you talking about?
I'm sure its quite simple, but I keep messing it up! I did the last two rows of Lace Pattern 2 and it was obv. Love this sweater, hoping to get my little 3 week bean in it soon!! Hi Becky, These are the two rows: K to 2 sts before m, ssk, work Lace Pattern 2 between markers, k2tog, k to 3 sts before m, ssk, k2, k2tog 2X, k to 2 sts before m, ssk, work Lace Pattern 2 between markers, k2tog, k to end. K5, p to last 5 sts, k5 I'm not sure what you're doing LP2 is only worked between the front shoulder markers, so if you're working multiple repeats you're doing something wrong Sorry not to be more helpful!
For a lovely pattern and the help along the way! Will be putting photos up on my blog and Ravelry very soon - I hope I have done it justice for you! Thanks again - love it: Hi,I'm working away on this gorgeous cardi of yours but have come to a grinding halt! When you say "work these two rows until you have 83 stitches" I don't know what you mean. You answer this question in another comment but the first row of the two you mention comprises of ten rows of lace pattern 2 which means I cant be decreasing??
What am I missing? Am I only supposed to continue with row 9 of the lace pattern then a purl row? Sorry but it didnt make sense to me. Thanks for the help! Hi Clare, Nope, you work whatever row of Lace Pattern 2 is next, but you're decreasing around that lace section--it stays between stitch markers.
Oh thanks so much Nikki! I had another look last night as thought so but had to check as frogging Koigu was not going to be any fun ;. I just finished one in bleu - minus the lace pattern at the bottom, we don't know yet if we are having a boy or a girl -, and with a different gauge to get a size 12 months. Thank you much, it's a wonderful pattern, I had no problem following it. It's fun to knit and absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to see it on my little one: Oh my, that's beautiful!
I'm a Hawaiian living in northern Illinois, and I absolutely must knit this pattern!!! I'll find a baby to stick it on later: This is the most beautiful baby sweater that I've come across. I definitely will make this one, thank you so much for sharing. My newborn great-niece will be wearing this at her mother's wedding.
Thank you for sharing this pattern and allowing it to be such a special part of our lives too. Pics on Ravelry soon! I saw this sweater in pink on a bulletin board in my LYS today and had to have it. And, of corse, some nice tonal green Shibui.
Thank you so much for sharing your talent. Repeat the last 8 rows 2X more, then work even until piece measures 4. Could you please lemme know what the 2x would mean and the rest of the instructions? Hi Swetha, The 2X means two times--so work everything in bold below two more times.
K to 3 sts before m, ssk, k2, k2tog 2X, k to end Work 7 rows even. Work even means to work in stockinette stitch for 4. Hi, I've been working on this and am a little confused by the measuring. In the sleeves you say, after working all of the initial rows that I should continue even until the piece measures 4. Have I done something wrong?
Can u pls let me know how i shud start knitting the sleeve after he marker on the body?? Also when do i stitch the sleeve sides? Hi Swetha, I'm not sure how to describe it any more clearly than how it is written in the pattern, or has been discussed in the comments previously. I would suggest simply starting on the yoke and following the instructions as closely as you can--it's simple enough once you get started; the issue is with the tightness of the needles--many people slip the sleeve stitches onto two dpns to give them some ease.
As the pattern states, you sew up the sleeves after finishing the yoke. I used your pattern to knit "coming home outfits" for my twin girls last fall. It was very meaningful to me as well because my husband and I were married in Hawaii and wore maile leis.
I want to thank you for sharing this pattern. The sweaters will be a treasured item to save for them. I'm having trouble adding the sleeves, I followed the pattern, but after I added the first sleeve, my needles were too tight to keep knitting.
I know you said you can bind off some stitches to give more room, but if I do that, how do I continue with the pattern?
Thanks for your help! Well, you'll need to rip back a bit. You would need to BO stitches at each end of the sleeves just 2 or 3 on each side , and then BO either 4 or 6 stitches at the sleeve join in the body. I'm sure that sounds tricky--if it were me, I would stick with what you have.
I'd slide some of your sleeve stitches onto a couple of dpns, which will give you some room to work with. So far I am loving this pattern but I am a bit confused. Repeat the last two rows until Lace Pattern 1 has been completed. K5, p to last 5 sts, k5 is this done on the right side bc thats how i did it k33, pm, k65, pm, k33 I am assuming this is meant to be knit on the right side but I am wrong side based on the above tks.
Hi Rachel, The purl stitches are always on the wrong side--that should clarify things! So the place marker row is a Right Side row. Or else it dosent work right I am going to ML the sleeve on rather then knitting 2 and grafting them on so I wanted to double check about st counts--there are 46st for the sleeves or is it far less when you attach them? This is beautiful, and an easy knit. However, I had the same question another knitter did whether the sleeves were knit in the round or flat.
You responded the pattern indicates they are knitted flat. Based on the 'knit 10 rows' in the beginning of the sleeves yet they are clearly garter stitch edged, yes. But I was never able to find a place where 'stitch sleeve seam' is indicated.
That seems obvious, but It's 46 stitches for magic loop, Rachel, so you should be fine. You seam the sleeves at the very end--they are written to be knit flat. Really stupid question--when you start the yoke, are the sleeves on the needles with it -- sleeve, yoke, sleeve.
Or, are the sleeves on separate needles, and you knit them on from those? I've been working on it for months now and have knit and re-knit it again and again but I cannot get the lace to look how it does it the pictures. I have followed the instructions exactly and am sure that I have done everything right and yet only half of the lace pattern works. The left side just does not look right. I plan to continue because it still looks alright but I'm wondering if anyone has finished this sweater looking exactly like it is supposed to?
Is it just me or is there something wrong with the pattern? Hi there, I'm not sure what's going on--the sweater should be working out for you! I'm sorry it's been so frustrating; you could try explaining the problem to me, or you could go to http: I am very anxious to get at this pattern but have already hit a road block. I am fairly new to this type of knitting so please excute my lack of knowledge. When the Lace Pattern 1 is worked it states: K5, work Lace Pattern 1to last 5 sts,K5. If I follow what it says I don't have enough stitch.
Also, for row 3 of the same lace pattern would there also be K5 at the beginning and end of the row? I'd really appreciate your help.
For the Lace Pattern 1 - for Row 2 and all even it says to purl. Should the first and last 5 stitches be knit? Love the pattern and hope I can get it complete before the baby shower.
Hi there, I'm not sure where your trouble is--perhaps you didn't cast on the right number of stitches? Yes, you do knit the 5 edge stitches on either side, throughout the sweater. Hi there, I'm sorry to ask you to explain this again, but when you say, "work 7 rows even" or "in plain stockinette", do you mean: Thanks for your help!! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and personal pattern. I have knitted it twice so far, both in red and I plan on using it again soon.
Hi Shelby, Stockinette stitch is knit all on one side, and purl all on the other. So, as you say: I love the pattern I thinks it beautiful but your instructions are complicated as am always trying to second guess the instructions. It wouldn't hurt to number your rows. For example button holes..
Alright, I'm having an issue with Lace Pattern 1. After doing Row 1, I ended up with 11 sts. Trust me, I've ripped it all out, started from square one and counted sts. Is there a common misstep I'm making here?
Awesome sweater, just my obsession right now! I don't know what's going on, but it sounds to me like you're having a mental block Knit that bit in stockinette--a lot of knitters prefer it that way anyway, I've noticed.
Just go around the problem rather than trying force your way through it. Does " K to 3 sts before m, ssk, k2, k2tog 2X" mean to work the sequence in parentheses two times, then knit the rest of the row? That's how I initally understood it. Making my second of these gorgeous cardis.
The first was in a very pretty lilac and the second is in a light green for a little girl who's very likely to have pretty red hair. SSK is slip, slip, knit--you slip two stitches onto your right hand needle, and then insert your left needle into the back of those stiches, and knit them together. There are good tutorials online--just do a google search. Dear Nikki, Love the pattern but there are obviously differences between English and American patterns!
Would you please tell me what "skp" means. Thanks Sue in Twickenham, UK. You slip the next stitch on the left needle to your right hand needle. Then knit the next stitch, and pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch--one stitch decreased. Hi Nikki, wanted to say i love your sweater, so much so i have started one myself. However, i am confused at the lace 1 pattern.
Am I correct at knitting k5, p to last 5, k5 and then the next row I k5, work in lace pattern to last 5, k5? The trouble I run into is with the row2 and even rows of the lace pattern. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
Sorry if that sounds oonfusing. This is my first attempt at a lace sweater. Hi there, Row 2 and all even numbered rows are straight up purled--so on your wrong side, purl across keeping the 5 garter edge stitches, of course. That should keep it in stockinette, not garter. Hi Nikki, I just joined the sleeves to start the yoke, but it seems that i have a stitch count problem. There is a difference of 2 stiches in the sleeves stich count between the lace markers and the back markers. One of my back marker is located in the sleeve and the other one is in the back part so the back rAgalans are not quite centered.
Shouldn't these markers be placed at the sleeves joints? Is this normal or did I do something wrong? It seems that the shift comes in the next RS row, when the decreases are done 3 sts before marker But after the next RS row, I have: Could you please explain me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you in advance. Well, it seems like you aren't working the lace pattern between your markers? Or are you working them in both the back and the front? They are only supposed to be in the front.
It works like this: The raglan decreases are broken up by the lace pattern in front, but not in back, which can make it feel off-centered. It isn't--The stitch counts are evenly broken up, it's just that the division between the raglan decreases is larger in front than in back, if that makes sense. I hope this helps!
Perhaps try bringing the pattern into your lys? Thanks for the informations, but I only knit the lace parts within the front raglans, ans what I called "joint" is only the place where the sleeves joined the back part. I think that the problem came from the fact that in the fist row the markers are placed, within the back raglans in this way: It seems to me that modifind this row in: K to 2 sts before m, ssk, work Lace Pattern 2 between markers, k2tog, k to 2 sts before m, ssk, k2, k2tog 2X, k to 2 sts before m, ssk, work Lace Pattern 2 between markers, k2tog, k to end, will result in stitch counts evenly broken up and centered raglans.
Markers will remain placed like this within the raglans: I hope this make sense and I apologize for my english I'm French. Tanks for your patience and for sharing with us a so nice pattern! As I've knit it up it works out fine--the instructions specify spacing the decreases away from the marker, not right at the joint as you specify--but if it's not working out for you, absolutely change it!
After some researches on Ravelry, it appears that several people experienced the same problem. It is symetric and the decreases are away from the joint. Doug McMillon serves as president and chief executive officer.

Walmart's move into the grocery business in the late s set it against major supermarket chains in both the United States and Canada. Several smaller retailers, primarily dollar stores , such as Family Dollar and Dollar General , have been able to find a small niche market and compete successfully against Walmart.
Walmart also had to face fierce competition in some foreign markets. Shinsegae re-branded the Walmarts as E-mart stores. Walmart struggled to export its brand elsewhere as it rigidly tried to reproduce its model overseas. In China, Walmart hopes to succeed by adapting and doing things preferable to Chinese citizens. For example, it found that Chinese consumers preferred to select their own live fish and seafood; stores began displaying the meat uncovered and installed fish tanks, leading to higher sales.
Walmart customers cite low prices as the most important reason for shopping there. Walmart customer's income is below the national average. Bush while only 23 percent supported senator John Kerry. Due to its prominence in the Bible Belt , Walmart is known for its "tradition of tailoring its service to churchgoing customers".

Walmart's datacenter is unofficially referred to as Area In April , Walmart acquired Kosmix to develop software for analyzing real-time data streams. The amount of data gathered by Walmart has raised privacy concerns. Sam Walton believed that the company's contribution to society was the fact that it operated efficiently, thereby lowering the cost of living for customers, and, therefore, in that sense was a "powerful force for good", despite his refusal to contribute cash to philanthropic causes.
Kenneth Stone, Professor of Economics at Iowa State University, in a paper published in Farm Foundation in , found that some small towns can lose almost half of their retail trade within ten years of a Walmart store opening. He concludes that small towns are more affected by "discount mass merchandiser stores" than larger towns and that shop owners who adapt to the ever-changing retail market can "co-exist and even thrive in this type of environment.
One study found Walmart's entry into a new market has a profound impact on its competition. When a Walmart opens in a new market, median sales drop 40 percent at similar high-volume stores, 17 percent at supermarkets and 6 percent at drugstores, according to a June study by researchers at several universities and led by the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
The leader of that study admits that this factor is stronger in smaller towns and doesn't apply to more urban areas saying "It'd be so tough to nail down what's up with Wal-Mart". This same study also found that the local retailers experience virtually no benefit.
The study draws from three annual surveys of enterprises within a four-mile radius of a new Chicago Walmart and it "shows that the probability of going out of business was significantly higher for establishments close to that store". The study illustrated how approximately jobs were lost due to the opening of the store, which is about equivalent to Walmart's employment in the area.
The overall findings of this study reinforce the "contention that large-city Walmarts, like those in small towns, absorb retail sales from nearby stores without significantly expanding the market" as this is one of the first studies of Walmarts economic impacts on local economies. These issues involve low wages , poor working conditions , inadequate health care , and issues involving the company's strong anti-union policies.
This was found in a study by Oklahoma State University which states, "Walmart is found to have substantially lowered the relative unemployment rates of blacks in those counties where it is present, but to have had only a limited impact on relative incomes after the influences of other socio-economic variables were taken into account. Walmart is the largest private employer in the United States, employing almost five times as many people as IBM , the second-largest employer.

There are seven business resource groups: Walmart has been subject to criticism from various groups and individuals, including labor unions , community groups, grassroots organizations, religious organizations, environmental groups, and the company's own customers and employees.
They have protested against the company's policies and business practices, including charges of racial and gender discrimination. In April , Walmart announced that it plans to eliminate eggs from battery cages from its supply chain by In March , Walmart was sued by former Director of Business Development Tri Huynh for claims of reporting misleading e-commerce performance results in favor of the company. Huynh stated the company's move was an attempt to regain lost ground to competitor Amazon.
