I need to turn this into a flat pattern K3,P2, repeat accross K3,P2 repeat accross SL1,K2,PSSO,P2 repeat accross K1,YO,K1 P2 repeat accroI't done in the round but I want to make a blanket out of this pattern.Can this be done and how
well it looks like a fairly simple 5 stitch repeat. do you want the pattern to be just those stitches all the way across or do you want stockinette or something in between? what about a border? i think i would just swatch it out....cast on about 30 stitches plus however many you want for a border and see how wide the repeats are and figure your blanket from there.
that of course makes complete sense in my own inexperienced brain!...lol
I forgot to say this is a mock cable stitch. I did a swatch and the cable doesn't look right
For knitting flat, you do the right side the same as in the round, but you have to reverse the stitches for the back--reverse the knits and purls and reverse the direction in which you knit them.
so I would K3P2----P2K3----SL1 K2 PSSO P2--K2P1YOP1
It would be row 1--k3 p2, row 2--k2 p3, row 3--as is row 4--k2, p, yo, p
The order in which you do the stitches has to change since you're going left to right on the back.
YOU ROCK :happydance: Ingrid
Thanks again :D
sorry but wouldnt you switch row 2 P & K from K3 P2 to P2 K3
If it's ribbing, you need to reverse the stitches, so a k3, p2 would be k2, p3 on the back.
so why is row 4 switched the way it is
row 4-- K1,YO,K1 P2 --the original as you posted it would become
k2, p1, yo, p1 because you're going the the other way on the back.
:wall: so why aren't row 2 & row 4 switched the same way if there both on the back
I posted this here to make sure I'm not messing up.
Rows one and three are on the front, right? They would stay the same.
Rows 2 and 4 are the back, so row 2 would be k2, p3Row 4 would be k2, p1, yo, p1
I got it !!! It was that K2 P1 P1 that got me screwed up I thought you were switching the P2 for K2 . It was just the way I was reading itThis is probably really confusing to you SORRY but I really think it was my pattern reading thanks again for all your help :happydance:
SO k3 p2 would be k3 p2
p2 k3 k2 p3
k2tog k1 p2tog p2tog k1 k2tog
k2 tog p1 k2tog p1
k1 p1 k1p1
k1 p1 p1k1
Good, I'm glad you got it. The funny thing is, it will become so obvious once you start knitting, you'll wonder why there was any confusion in the first place.
sorry again but I was editing is the new pattern I changed right on last page
Row 1 (RS) k3, p2 would stay k3, p2
Row 2 (WS) p2 k3 would be p3, k2
Row 3 (RS) k2tog, k1, p2tog would stay the same
Row 4 (WS) k2tog, p1 would be k1, p2tog
Row 5 (RS) k1, p1 would stay k1p1
Row 6 (WS) k1, p1 would be p1, k1
I am ssoooooooooo :oops: I really got it this time :figureditout: Sorry I'm such a pain in the ass. I made it more confusing then what it was THANKS Ingrid for being so patient with me :waving: Your the best
