I'm super new to knitting. In fact, I've only ever done rib knit scarves...which are so boring I lose interest in knitting. So, I'm trying a new pattern which seemed fairly cut and dry while remaining challenging and I thought "Gee, this looks like a winner. How could I possibly mess this up?" And I can't even get the thing started!! LOL! I'm almost sure that if I could just get past this setup part I would be golden
The pattern I'm trying is the hole-in-hole-scarf by Silja Devine that I found on ravelry.
She says at the beginning "Cast on 3 stitches. Knit the 4 next rows. Pick up 1 stitch in the space between two garterrows
and pick up 3 stitches in the cast on row."
I'm really confused!!! Am I supposed to knit four rows then pick up 1 stitch (in between which 2 garterrows??) Or does she mean to pickup a stitch around row 2 of the 4 that I'm stitching? Am I making sense?
Then I'm totally lost when she says to pick up 3 stitches in the cast on row. I've googled picking up stitches and I can only find stuff where people are using new pieces of yarn. Do you think that's what she means for me to do? Or is there another technique for picking up stitches?
Any help anyone can offer me would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks everyone!!
