I tried n tried n tried :pout: ...finished these steps in blue:
[color=blue]Very loosely, cast on 24 stitches.
K 1, turn, K 1, turn.
K 2, turn, K 2, turn.
K 3, turn, K 3, turn.
K 4, turn, K 4, turn.
K 5, turn, K 5, turn.
K 6, turn, K 6, turn.
K 7, turn, K 7, turn.
K 8, do not turn.
Repeat the directions for the Bottom Triangle
twice more – three triangles in total. They
look a little twisted right now. Don’t worry;
they’ll sort themselves out as you go along.
Turn and make an Increasing Side Triangle.
Increasing Side Triangle:
K 1, turn, K-FB, turn.
K 1, SKP, turn, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 2, SKP, turn, K 1, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 3, SKP, turn, K 2, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 4, SKP, turn, K 3, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 5, SKP, turn, K 4, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 6, SKP, turn, K 5, K-FB, K 1, turn._
K 7, SKP, do not turn.
Now make a Square.
[color=red]Pick up 8 stitches along the side of the previous row [/color][color=blue],turn.
* K 8, turn, K 7, SKP, turn. *
Repeat between the *s another seven times,
but do not turn at the end of the eighth
Make another Square...[/color]
However...I ended up with a perfect open-top cube...a three dimensional box.
I think my error is not understanding the directions I have highlighted in red.
Hmmm...I feel like a bonehead! I frogged it all...and put it away for now.
Any input? Maybe I should take it to my LYS. Then owner is helpful...and teached entrelac concepts.
