Well, I’m learning how to cable… for this month’s challenge. So I chose a beautiful pair of cabled fingerless gloves. (its a PDF…)
This is also my first project in the round. First question. When working in the round, is it like crocheting where you just keep going around and around? Or do you have to turn it at the end of each row?
Now…I’ve done the 5 rows of k2p2 ribbing.
Then it says to start the pattern. The pattern reads as this:
Cable (worked over 10 sts):
Row 1: (RS): p 2, sl 2 sts onto cable needle and hold in front, k 2, then k 2 from cable needle, k 4, p 2.
Rows 2-4: Work sts as they appear.
Row 5: (RS): p2, k2, sl 2 sts onto cable needle and hold in back, k 2, then k2 from cable needle, p2.
Rows 6-8: Work sts as they appear.
Is it just me, or does Row 1 have 12 stitches? What do you suggest I do? I’m really bad at frogging… I usually just pull the whole thing out and start over again if i’ve screwed up this bad.
I’m going to try and frog back to the beginning of the first cable row…
Any help would be greatly appreciated…
