i’m a new knitter and just learn how to knit yesterday, and so kink of confusing and still need to learn more, and please help me with this pattern:
Increasing tips: Inc inside 1 edge st by making a yo. On the return row knit yo into back of st in order to avoid a hole.
Decreasing tips: Dec inside 1 edge st.
Dec as follows after 1 edge st: P2 tog.
Dec as follows before 1 edge st: P2 tog into back of st.
Neck warmer: Begin with the centre part with cable pattern, pick up sts round the piece and knit the Rib. Cast on 15 sts on needle size 4 mm with 2 threads Alpaca (double thread). Knit 2 rows garter sts and continue in M.1 (= 13 sts) with 1 edge st each side knitted in garter sts throughout. At the same time inc 1 st each side on every other row a total of 6 times – see Increasing tips = 27 sts – knit new sts from the WS and purl them from the RS. When piece measures 65 cm dec 1 st each side on every other row a total of 6 times - see Decreasing tips = 15 sts. Knit 2 rows garter sts and cast off loosely.
Rib: Knitted round. Pick up approx 342 to 366 sts (divisible by 3) round the neck warmer on circular needle size 4 mm with 2 threads Alpaca. Purl 1 round, knit 1 round and continue in Rib, K2/P1. When Rib measures 2 cm inc every other P section to P2. When piece measures 3 cm inc remaining purl sections to P2. When Rib measures 5 cm inc every other purl section from P2 to P3. Cast off on next row in Rib.
it said “Inc inside 1 edge st by making a yo. On the return row knit yo into back of st in order to avoid a hole” what do i need to do, how to yo into back of st , i know how to yo by watching the video but just not sure yo into back st, is it the same thing?
And then : “Dec inside 1 edge st” , what is it mean?
Again:" P2 tog into back of st" , i know how to p2 tog but not sure it p2 tog into back st.
And it said to cast on 15 st and continute to M.!( =13 st) , it should be 15 st not 13 st, or cast on 13 st and continute to M.1 ( =13 st) , i’m really confusing with that, do i need to dec st to make it from 15 to 13 st.
Sorry that i have so many questions but please if you try to help , please answer all my questions , and please go to the website below for diagram, i don’t understand it and please help me explain step by step, so if you can help me write down the pattern clearly step by step, i’d be really thankful for your help.
Thank you very much
