[color=darkblue]I am hoping to make a simple scarf using the Elongated Stitch (found pattern on KP Yarns site). I studied Amy’s video demo for this stitch, and I believe I’ve got it. but, one question remains: each elongated stitch produces a two-stranded column; EXCEPT one end of the row, which seems to have (necessarily) a column with three strands (twisted).
The pattern calls for co 12 sts, loosely, k1 (wrap twice), repeat to end of row, ending in k1. This is for the Elongated Stitch row. For me, this produces the different colum on one end. I have tried (a) beginning and ending with a regular knit stitch, framing the elongated wrapped stitches; and (b) beginning and ending with a slip stitch. These two “methods” also produce an odd column on one end of the row.
I have knitted up about 6 inches 8 times so far, but get the same result each time.
Is this asymmetric terminal column normal? Acceptable? Looks strange to me. Can it be avoided?
