The easiest way for me to remember which stitches need to be transferred is to use the carriage either from Left to Right or from Right to Left. The Mainbed needle group of 3,the needle nearest the carriage needs to have that needle transferred to the centre needle (of3) than "both" loops or stitches get transferred back to the originally transferred needle, putting the now empty centre needle back into working position.
This is the 3x2 needle set for both beds. Outside needles are used on the ribber,2 either side for seaming, or 5-6 on side which incorporates Front Bands, either left or right. A query came up from a Knitter friend on this subject.
For some patterns published in Magazines there are several ways of tackling the job. One can follow the instructions word for word or in many cases one can reproduce the same result in different ways, be it because one hasn't got the same brand of machine, a different gauge, a very different type of yarn or a body which requires changes of all kinds, be that length or width.
The garment can still resemble the original or actually look the same, allbeit with a better fit or more appropriate for the wearer.
This particular garment is a very pretty handmanipulated rib lace in part & plain knitting in another from Machine knitting Monthly July 2008 (a magazine which most of us buy).
I'n the next few days I will try to knit it the way I prefer. Wish me luck!
