I'm knitting the Just Ducky Hat: http://www.p2designs.com (click Patterns, then Free Patterns, and it's the Just Ducky Hat--sorry, but the link that goes directly to the hat does not work) and trying to understand the instructions for the duck's bill.
Here they are:
CO 8 stitches (4 on each needle). This I get. Now it says:
Rnd 1: knit around, splitting the stitches into 3 needles (ndl1: 2 st, ndl2: 2 st, and ndl3: 4 st). How is this done?
Rnd 2: 1st needle: k1, inc1, k across, 2nd needle: k across to next to last st, inc 1, k1, 3rd needle: k1, inc 1, k across to next to last st, inc 1, k1
repeat rnd 2 until there are 32 stitches total.
I'm new at this and I do not understand what the instructions are saying. Can anyone help clarify?
Thanks for any help!
