Got to the point in a current project where I knew I was going to need your collective help.
I kinda know what the pattern is asking for, and I can see why its asking for it...but I don't know how to do it...:aww:
The pattern print-off states...
Next row (WS): (with left needle, pickup up purl bump of next st, 6 rows down, p this st with next st on needle] to end of row
So I understand it wants to me to p 2 stitches together, one being the next st on the needle, and the other being 6 rows down underneath it...to ultimately form a ridge across the knitted material
But how do I pick up the st in the 6th row -> with the left needle....and how do I identify which purl bump to pick up.
Any one able to throw up a clear pic showing how to identify the purl rows on the WS of a Stockinette st garment, to help me learn how to count down the rows?
Oh,and one more quick Q, to make doubly sure I'm at the stage in the pattern where I think I am...when a pattern says work in St st until work measures 8 inches...is that a loose 8 inches or a pulled tight 8 inches. Currently, if I just let the work hang straight down and put a cloth tape measure up the centre, its just over 7 inches. But if I give it a bit of tension and stretch it, it is 8 inches.
