I think I’ve heard other people say they have some trouble sometimes with the Drops patterns. I certainly do. For instance, I’ve been searching for a different sort of legwarmer pattern, something fun and pretty besides just ribbed. I found this pattern at Drops but it is immediately confusing.
Anybody understand this?
The link is below but here is where I get confused:
Cast on 38 sts (incl 1 edge st each side) on needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Knit 3 rows (1st row = RS) and P 3 rows. At the same time inc 1 st in the 16th st and 1 st in the 18th st on the last row (= 40 sts).
Wait, maybe I’ve got it. But to clarify: the increasing in the last row would be in purl. And I’m increasig into the 16 and 18th stitch. Maybe it’s easier than I thought. Also, WHEN THEY SAY (incl 1 edge st each side)
does that mean the cast on of 38 sts already has the 2 edge stitches in it, and those are what? done in garter st? knit. right?
here’s the link:
Sorry for so many questions! Thanks for your help.
What do you think of these? They are knit on Size 13 needles, that’s really BIG.
