I have been knitting for some time now, and have always been able to figure out the instructions for every stitch I have encountered so far. But there is a stitch in the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Knitting Book that has me stumped. It is the Tuck Stitch on pg 139. It says:
Tuck st: Insert RH needle through the center of st two rows below and knit this stitch.
That’s it. When I had finally identified the st two rows below, and knitted it, I ended up with extra stitches at the end of the row. What is to be done with the stitch above the stitch that is knitted? I looked in my other knitting books and they were no help either. I admit I am stymied.
And since another stitch pattern I tried ended up looking NOTHING like the photo they had, I am a little disappointed with this book. Although I also have The Knitting Stitch Bible by Maria Parry-Jones, and am more disappointed with that book. There are mystery symbols in some charts that have no explanation, and I cannot find one of the stitch patterns featured on the front cover of the book anywhere inside.
But all that aside, can anyone help me with the instructions on the Tuck stitch? Thanks to all! This is a great website!
