I havent been knitting that long, but I figured that after making a few scarves, mittens and a lace scarf for my mother, I could try for a shawl. So I chose the Forget-me-not shawlfrom elann.
I understand all the pattern, except… the cast on! You can figure, I cant begin working on it before I do :mrgreen:
Here’s what the pattern says;
"[B]Cast on: [/B]Shawl begins at the center back using provisional cast on. With contrast color scrap yarn and crochet hook, chain 8. With shawl yarn pick up and knit 4 sts in the bumps on the back side of the center 4 chains - 4 sts. Knit 6 rows. Next row, K4>, pick up and knit 1 st in each of the 3 garter ridges along selvedge edge of the piece, unzip scrap yarn chain to expose 4 sts at base of the piece, place these 4 sts onto left needle, K4. (11 sts total) "
So I watched the video on how todo a provisional cast-on, which I understand. Where my brain stop is : [I]With contrast color scrap yarn and crochet hook, chain 8. With shawl yarn pick up and knit 4 sts in the bumps on the back side of the center 4 chains - 4 sts.[/I]
Knit 4 sts in the bumps of what? :?? I’m a bit confused by the rest of it, since I’ve never done anything like this…
Any advice would really help me! Even if you can just link me some video or tutorial, I would apreciate it a lot! Thanks in advance everyone!
