I am a frustrated new knitter, trying to teach myself to knit. I have been looking on the internet and found an enormous amount of instructions, but I have found it very difficult to interpret knitting instructions on patterns. I am able to do the different types of stitches and have been practicing, so now I want to try to knit a dishcloth, it looks simple enough…
These instructions are for me like GREEK! I have watched all the videos for beginners on this site which are great, but there is nothing to teach you how to interpret pattern instructions.
Here they are:
Cast on 1 st. 1st row: (RS). (K1. yfwd. K1) all in st. 3 sts.
2nd row: Knit.
3rd row: inc. 1 st in first st. inc. 1 st in next st. K1. 5 sts.
It goes on but I don’t even know how to start… I know how to do the long tail cast on, no problem, then what? I have absolutely no clue what I’m doing. Thanks for any help you can give!
