My husband got me a glove knitting book called "Knitting New Gloves and Scarves" by Robin Melanson. And I'm trying to figure out this pattern called Filigree. Im practicing with a cheaper cotton yarn then what it calls for just to make sure I get the pattern down before I begin the actual project. So here is the pattern
cast on 32 sts with long tail cast on devide evenly among four dpn(8-8-8-8) join for working in the round, place marker. Purl one round, knit one round, purl one round
I understand all that.
Change to open work pattern in the rnd work even for 16 rnds
here is the open work pattern
(multiple of 4 sts; 4-rnd repeat) What does this mean?
RND 1: Knit wrapping yarn around needle twice for each stitch.
I understant that
RND 2: *slip next 4 stitchs to right hand needle, dropping extra wraps, slip them back to left hand needle, then k4tog, p4tog into these 4 sts; repeat from * to end [ note: stitch count will be half of original number ofter this rnd]
RND 3: *K1, YO; repeat from * to end.[ Note: original stitch count restored.]
RND 4: Knit
Repeat Rnds 1-4 for openwork pattern in the round.
okay I get lost at round two. I tried slipping four sts dropping extra wrap replacing those to left hand needle and k4tog then sliping 4 sts dropping extra wraps replacing on left hand needle and p4tog. I ended up with to few sts, so Im doing it wrong, but dont understand how to "k4tog, p4tog into these 4 sts"
Thanks anyone who can help me out here. also what does it mean when it says " multiple of 4 sts; 4-rnd repeat" ?
