I started knitting a ruffled neck scarf pattern, got through the ruffle with the stitch holder :yay: worked in Garter st patt until work measures 24'', I have 22 stitches on needle, now it says OPENINGS -1. K7 sts, turn work to the other side, cont working these 7 sts in Garter st patter for 3''.
2. Rejoin yarn, K next 8 sts, turn work to the other side, cont in garter st patt for 3".
3. Rejoin yarn, K next 7 sts, turn work to the other side, cont in Garter st patt for 3''.
I know that this will create an opening, my question is:
I did #1 for 3 inches. When I go to knit the next 8 stitches, turn the work to the other side, I knit just those 8 but it looks wrong, like I missed a stitch because yarn does not look like it rejoined. DO I have to pick up the 7th stitch to join???????????? I have tried to knit this from a sample all weekend before I attempt to do it on the scarf and I'm getting the same results. Any input will be so much appreciated. THANKS!!!:knitting:
