I’m trying to follow a pattern but stuck on the 5th row. It’s saying to do 4 rows in twisted garter stitch and then commence the 5th row with k3b. Is this a mistake as I’ve never had to do that at the beginning of a row before and find that I’m creating a big loop rather than a ladder if that makes sense?
What pattern are you making? Can you give us a link or name?
How does your pattern define k3b?
OK, a scarf. Take a look at the beginning and at the end of the instructions. See if the pattern defines k3b. 1. How is the pattern telling you to work k3b?
- What is the name of this pattern, please?
Exactly. K3b means to knit 3 stitches each one through the back loop. That can be done anywhere in a row including the beginning of the row.
Ooooohh! I missed that. I just googled k3b and it was telling me how to knit down! Thank-you so much that makes much more sense.
