I'm a new knitter....trying this baby sweater pattern in moss stitch. You cast on 53 stitches, moss stitch until it's 9.5 inches long. Ok I've done that. Now you cast off 6 st for the next 4 rows, then c/o 5 stitches for 2....blah blah blah. My problem is that with moss stitch it's k,p,p,k. So to cast off and keep the pattern going, do I k1, p1, slip the k over the p and drop it? and then what I'd have left on the right needle would be the purl? So then to continue the pattern, I'd k1, slip the p over the k etc? It's really hard to keep the pattern in my head and count cast off stitches! Is that what you do though?
Thanks in advance!
