I’m a fairly new knitter, but enjoy challenges… So now I’m making
these. This is my first time knitting with two colors, and my first time reading a pattern. I’ve made socks before but had someone telling me “now do this, then do that”.
So I’ve come to the toe, things are looking good, and suddenly I’m confused.
Here’s the part of the pattern I’m on:
All I have left on that is the wide X at the top and the funny empty square at the very top. The pattern shows the front side only.
The pattern key says this:
And the instructions for the last bit say (and unfortunately I only have that part of the instructions in Swedish, long story but I will translate as best I can): “When the diagram is knitted, you knit two together one time around. Take off the yarn and pull it through the stitch.”
Here is the status right now:
As you can see I have 4, 5, 4, 5 stitches left on my needle. Am I supposed to knit them two and two together (then I would have 9 total)? And then just pull the yarn through all 9? But then I wouldn’t have done that X in the pattern. But I can’t do the X, right now, because that seems like it should come at the top middle of the pattern, I’m at the top left and thus about 12 stitches away from that point? Maybe I’m not explaining so well, I’m just pretty confused. Can anyone help?
