[COLOR="Blue"]Hi Cam - I'm beginning to think the "Pillar" stitch is in fact the one I want. I strained my eyes to read the page from the Harmony Guide you posted and this is what I believe I saw: 1st row wrong side purl -2nd row K1 *yf, k2, pass yf over k2, rep from * to last st, k1. Rep these 2 rows.
Following the above instructions, I tried a swatch last night and it was a complete failure. It didn't resemble the Pillar stitch at all. Maybe I'm not understanding the instructions properly.
This is exactly what I did...1st row wrong side purl - Simple enough, just purl the entire row. 2nd row K1 *yf, k2, pass yf over k2, rep from * - Second row...I knit 1, then place the yarn forward as if to purl and knit 2 individual stitches (as opposed to knitting two together). Next I again bring the yarn forward again and knit another two individual stitches. I THINK THIS IS WHERE I MAY BE MAKING MY MISTAKE. The instruction states, "Pass yf over k2" and it's obviously not the same as what I initially did in the second row. Doing it the way I did resulted in a huge increase in the number of stitches after completing that row. I know that's not right. I guess the best thing is to ask for explicit instructions explaining this.
Sorry to appear so dense about this but would you kindly give me a "blow by blow" instruction on how to do the: 2nd row K1 *yf, k2, pass yf over k2, rep from *
Thank you so much for your patience and help.
