Posted: Fri Nov 25, 2005 3:25 pm Post subject: Here is pattern up to point where I am stuck.
Cast on 160 sts.
Work 16 rows in plain knitting.
18th (K1 P36 K1) 4 times. K8
rep these rows 7 times.
33rd K43 K2 tog K1 (k1 k2tog t.b.l. K32 k2 tog K1) 3 times
34th (K1 P34 K1) 3 times K1 P35 K9
rep 34th & 35th rows once then 34th row once
39th K42 K2 tog K1(K1 K2 tog tbl K30 K2 tog K1) 3 times.
40th (k1 P32 k1) 3 times K1 P34 K9
Rep 40th & 41st rows once then 40th row once.
That is where I am up to and stuck. As I say there are grooves along the work which I think might be what it means by panels. It then says
Cont in patt keeping the front edge straight and 8 sts in plain knitting for border, decreasing at each side of each panel in next and every following 6th row until 97 sts remain.
The rest of the half is.
Hi again. Have come to another impasse with cape. It says.
1st (KI P18 K1 twice turn.
Rep these 2 rows once
5th K1 P to last 2 sts turn
6th Knit to last two sts turn
7th K1 p to last 4 sts turn
8th K to last 4 sts turn
9th Kp P to last 6 sts turn
10th K to last 6 sts turn
11th K1 pto last 8 sts turn
12th K to last 8 sts turn
13th P to end of row. Cast off.
What I am not understanding apart from why I didn’t knit a scarf in first place is this.
I get to 5th row I turn and knit to the last 2 stitches and do the same on the 6th row. So for the 7th row it says K1 P to last 4 stitches. Does that mean the last 4 stitches including the two I have not knitted on previous row or the last 4 stitches of the ones I have knitted if you see what I mean.
Thanks in advance for reading and help.
