I went and looked at the pattern and actually knit the first bump thingie in the round with 24 stitches to see what I’d get. My result is like theirs but I don’t feel like I did exactly what they said. Pattern says:
Rnd 6: With B, * k5, yf, sl 1 purlwise, yb, rep from * around.
Rnds 7 – 11: With B, * k5, yo, sl next st and all previous yo’s purlwise, yb, rep from * around. Note: This results with a yo directly on top of each sl st.
And according to the instructions above the Yf means to bring the yarn under the needle to the front. (sounds like a yarn over to me) and the Yb meant bring the yarn over the needle to the back of the work. Well, on row 6 I K5, brought the yarn to the front, slipped purlwise and brought the yarn to the back like it said. But on rows 7-11 it seemed like a wacko thing to attempt so I didn’t do it that way exactly. :lol: On those rows I k5, brought the yarn to the front and with the yarn in front I slipped any yarn over/s along with the stitch that was there of the first color (the yarn overs were always in front of the stitch instead of beyond it like it seems to indicate), then I didn’t bring the yarn to the back over the needle, because I was already holding it at the back of the RH needle after doing the yarn over (yf) that it had me do. So I just went on to knit the next 5.
It worked and looks like the picture. On the row where you bunch it up by knitting a row with the first color, I just knit across and when I came to the mess of yarn overs I had accumulated I knitted them together with the one stitch in the first color that had been carried along by slipping. The yarn overs were in front of the stitch of a different color rather than beyond it.
