I have the book 60 Quick Knits for Cascade 220 yarn and I'm having a little bit of trouble with one of the easier patterns. In case anyone has the book, it is #30, the Eyelet Scarf. It says the difficulty is easy, so I'm sure that I'm just overcomplicating this and making it difficult for myself.
The pattern goes as follows:
CO 38 sts
Row 1 (RS): K2, *p1, yo, SKP, p1, k2; rep from * to end
Row 2: *P2, k1; rep from *, end p2
Row 3: K2, *p1, k2tog, yo, p1, k2; rep from * to end
Row 4: rep row 2
Rep rows 1-4 for lace pattern.
I think what is giving me the most trouble is in row 1: the p1, yo, SKP. I know yo's are slightly different depending on what kind of stitches you are going between, so I wasn't quite sure how to do one between a purl stitch and a slipped stitch.
What I've done so far just doesn't seem to be turning out as nicely as the picture in the book. I think part of the reason may be that I am not using Cascade 220 right now because no stores cloe to me carry out, so I tried it out with a different yarn. Will switching to the Cascade 220 help my scarf look more like the pattern? Any other suggestions/tips are welcome :] Thank you so much! :]
