So, I finished my first scarf. yahoo. now, i’m going to attempt to actually read a pattern to create something. I chose Calorimetry from knitty, which i understand isn’t that hard. Perhaps, my brain is just fried (i have a 4 mo) or I’m overthinking…Anyhoo, hoping someone here can help me out…
Here’s the pattern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html
First, it says
[COLOR=Magenta][I]2x2 Rib (Worked back and forth over a multiple of 4 sts):
[I]Row 1: [/I][K2, p2] to end.
Repeat this row for 2x2 Rib[/I][/COLOR] .
So, I’m assuming you just knit 2, purl 2. But then it says repeat this row. So, does that mean you count the first 2 rows as 1? But, then the directions say
[I][COLOR=Magenta][I]Row 2[/I]: Work in 2x2 Rib as set to last 2 sts, turn work.
[/COLOR][/I][COLOR=Magenta][COLOR=Black]Is Row 2, really row 3 because of my question above? Also, for this pattern i’m assuming all rows, are k2, p2? or am i missing something.
Gak. Hopefully I’m making some sense.
Oh, another general question-for my scarf i would slip the first stitch like, the videos on this site said. yet, i’m thinking i can’t do that when reading a pattern…right. because slipping the first stitch will screw up the directions.
Thanks in advance for your help. i’ve been lurking in these parts…waiting for a reason to chime in.
