I’ve been knitting for a little while now, doing relatively simple things like scarves, booties, and I even did a baby blanket. So, not a beginner, but I’m having trouble figuring out this pattern I got for free:
(I’ll post specifics in case anyone has trouble viewing the pattern).
I am working on the Left Front, and have completed Row 7. My questions are on
“Set up pattern (RS): Background pattern on next 34 sts, Puff Stitch pattern on next 8 sts, Ensign Braid on next 20
sts, Puff Stitch on next 8 sts, Background pattern on next
16 sts. Work in pattern as established for 13”, ending with
a WS row.”
The Background on the 1st row is Knit all the way, so I knit for the first 34 stitches (is this correct?). Then for the Puff Stitch it says :
“Row 1 (RS): P2, [(k1, p1) twice in next st creating 4 sts],
p2, k1, p2.”
What do I do for the part in parentheses and then the brackets? And what does it mean to k1,p1 twice in the next stitch? Am I increasing stitches from just one stitch here?
Thanks for your help
