I found this pattern listed as an easy beginner pattern… I am however confused:
Gauge - 4 sts and 4 rows = 1 inch
Cast on 22 sts. Knit across for 3 rows.
Start pattern :
Row 1 - Knit 2, * knit 2 tog, 3 times * ( over 6 sts ), then y o , knit one 6 times, * knit 2 tog 3 times *, knit 2.
Row 2- Knit 2, purl 18 , knit 2 .
Rows 3 and 4 - Knit across.
Repeat rows 1 through 4 for pattern, until about 46 inches from beginning, ending on row 4. Then work row 1 once more.
Knit 3 rows, then bind off in knit st.
Weave in any yarn ends.
Note - We used Lion Brand Homespun yarn for this project. There was enough yarn left from our 46 inch size scarf to make it about 3 or 4 inches longer. If you want a longer scarf, you will need an extra skein of yarn.
So a very simple pattern it seems but… following this won’t the scarf become smaller and smaller as one knits stitches together?
What does “then y o , knit one 6 times” mean? Does this mean knit one stitch 6 times with yarn out? I’m not sure how one would go about this and as a “beginner” I’m not sure this scarf is really cited correctly as being a beginners!!
I’m so confused can you help? :shock: :roflhard:
