I am a newbie in knitting. I have just completed a simple hat.. which looks adorable :happydance:
I have simply followed the instructions of a pattern that i found online.
Now i wonder how do people actually come to decide a pattern!
I mean they go like k2,p4,k2,yo... etc...
Like for socks i saw, it said take 42 and divide them in 3 needles..
Is there some counting method like after these many knits there should be these many purls.. or probably yarn over..
Please excuse me if these questions sound dumb...:aww:
I just want to confirm that I have not missed something basic in terms of knitting !
