I’m new to this forum but I’ve seen that it’s going to be very helpful! I tried posting this earlier but haven’t seen it so I’m wondering if I messed up on it.
I haven’t been knitting very long and most of what I’ve done so far has been pretty simple. Now I’m tackling something that requires a bit more than k & P and now I’m stuck! I am making this hat/mask as a Christmas gift.
I have just finished up through Face/Head portion of the pattern and have done the first row of the Eye holes portion and this is where I am officially lost.
“BO 2 sts, k11 (12 sts on right needle after bound-off sts) and place these sts on st holder; BO 2 sts, k to end. 60 sts.” I’ve done this. My first question is, how many sts should be on the st holder? The 11 that I stitched after binding off the first 2? Or the 12 that were on the right needle?
The next line in the pattern is:
“Row 1 WS: P2tog, p to last 2 sts, ssp.” WS is Wrong Side, correct? So does this mean I have to turn it inside out? Then:
“Row 2 RS: Sskm k to last 2 sts, k2tog. Again, RS is Right Side, correct? So turn it right side out? Also, I can’t seem to figure out what sskm means. ???
I think from here on out I’m going to need a lot of help.
