Hello, my name is Nancy Kittle. I am an experienced knitter but new to the forum.
I am attempting my first charted afghan pattern and have a question about the instructions. The pattern is the LW3884 Butterfly Cabled Blanket from Red Heart Yarn.
There are several different charts but the one I am having trouble with is the Butterfly chart. It is worked over 23 stitches but increase to 35 stitches, then decreases back to 23. I am including the row before and after the one in question:
- K1, p12, k2, p5, k2, p12, k1;
- K3, ssk, yo, yo, sssk, yo, yo, k2tog, k3, p2, 2/2 RC, p2, k3, ssk, yo, yo, sssk, yo, yo, k2tog, k3;
- P4, k1, p1, p1 tbl, p1, k1, p4, k2, p5, k2, p4, k1, p1, p1 tbl, p1, k1, p4
My question is regarding the "yo, yo". Can you please tell me if I should wrap the yarn around the needle twice, since there is no stitch between the two yarn-overs? If I do that, won't it leave a large hole, or will the subsequent row take care of that?
I'm sorry to sound like such a dunce, but before I embark on this project, I wanted to get it worked out in my head.
Thank you for any assistance.
