Hi! I’m new to the forums but not too terribly new to knitting. Mostly I knit toys so I haven’t had any problems but I recently decided to try something I could actually wear.
Well, I’ve always wanted a hooded scarf, and what’s cooler than one you’ve made yourself!? I had never really attempted something with a lace pattern, so I went for theEsteem - hooded scarf on Knitty. I started knitting. But for a mellow pattern, it is giving me quite a lot of problems. First, the lace pattern is 8 stitches wide. It says to cast on 22 stitches. There is a 1 stitch border, so that’s 20 stitches for the patter. 20 is not divisible by 8? So Am I supposed to do, like, 8, 8, 4 then on the next row 4, 8, 8? Or something else?
Also, I’m having problems knitting into the double yarn over. It gives you a hint, but I still feel like I’m missing something as I end up with a huge length of yarn that I can only manage to unravel and get one stitch on.
Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated!
Oh, and also: I have already found the help thread here that says that the lace pattern row 1 is a wrong side row.
