As usual I have a question. I am going to knitting a pattern from the book “Knit one below”. The pattern is Laid-Back Lapels (a vest). I am working the Column Pattern which consists of a 4 row repeat.
Row one is k1, * k1b, k1 repeat from * I understand this. On the next page it says Garter-stitch edge…Row 1 K2… it also calls for joining of the sides with a 3 needle bind off. This pattern also uses two colors so I need to run colors up the rows as I go.
My question is do I add the garter sts to both sides of the pattern as I move up and if so are these sts included in the number of sts to be cast on.
I hope this makes sense to someone here…
Thanks in advance!!!
