I recently downloaded a free pattern from Caron called "Kiel" scarf. It has a couple things in it I am not familiar with and would like to learn. One is "Cluster Variation Stitch" the directions state:
Cluster-4 Variation stitch (Cluster-4 V): Drop extra wrap off needle, slip 4 sts with yarn in back, [pass yarn to front, slip 4
same sts back to left needle, pass yarn in back, slip 4 same sts back to right needle] twice.
Also, there is wrapping the yarn twice while knitting:
"k4 wrapping yarn twice around needle"
I am assuming that the "Drop extra wrap off needle" in the cluster instructions refers to the extra wrap from the "wrap yarn twice".
I would really like some help with this, as I like the scarf pattern, but am unsure as to whether it is too much for me to master at this stage of the game. I looked at various sites on the internet and can't find any tutorials on it.
Thanks for any help.
