I am knitting the chalet socks from Nancy Bush’s FOLK SOCKS book and have spent hours trying to decipher the traveling stitch graph. Can anyone help?
From what I can tell, the pattern is saying to do this (I am doing rows 1-6 of the Seam Pattern only):
Row 1: P2, C2F (both k tbl), P2
Row 2: P1, C2B (P1, K1 tbl), C2F (K1 tbl, P1), P2
Row 3: P1, K1 tbl, P2, K1 tbl, P1
Row 4: P1, K1 tbl, P2, K1 tbl, P1
Row 5: P1, C2F (K1 tbl, P1), C2B (P1, K1 tbl), P2
Row 6: P2, C2F (both k tbl), P2
However, as I’m knitting I feel as though I am headed in the wrong direction. For example, the graph says that line 2 should be P, KTBL, P, P, KTBL, P…but that’s not what happens when you twist the stitches as I’ve written above. Can anyone tell me exactly what all the symbols mean–like the little lines going diagonally between boxes of different rows? What am I supposed to do for each specific line?
Thanks for your help!!! It’s VERY appreciated!!!
