I have just got this pattern leaflet ‘Patons Fab Big Colour leaflet 3872’
The hat is simple rib and garter stitch which i know how to do, unfortunately it is knitted using 5 double point needles which i have never used and don’t really have any idea how to, could you not just use circular needles? Tho i have never used them either lol.
However it is the scarf which i want to do most and the pattern is confusing me somewhat, it is bramble pattern (which after youtubing I understand) with crossed dropped stitches.
The pattern says to cast on 26 sts and work 24 rows even in bramble pattern then K 1 WS row.
The bramble pattern is: Mult of 6 + 2 selvage sts.
Row 1 (WS): Selvage st, *P5tog, work 5 into 1 st (= K1, P1, K1, P1, K1), rep 3 times from *, selvage st.
Row 2: P.
Row 3: Selvage st, *work 5 sts into 1 st, P5tog, rep 3 times from *, selvage st
Row 4: P.
This is then repeated for the required number of times.
I have no idea what a selvage st is :???: , I have tried to google it but am no wiser, it seems there are different forms of selvage st: one-stitch selvages and slip-stitch selvages (which has 3 variations - English, French, German).
Can someone please help me understand?! Does it simply mean that i have to K the first and last stitch of the WS (odd) rows as the RS (even) row is all Purl? Or do I just slip the first stitch of each WS row?
After casting on the first stitch is selvage stitch and I dont know what I am doing
Thanks, Sam xx
