Hi! I’m new and am already confused. I’m hoping that my newbie question won’t sound sooo dumb =)
Ok…so I’m trying to knit a hat and I have a pattern and I’m already lost…so much for “easy-peasy” hee hee.
Here is what it says:
for the body part, it’s basically 85 stitches in a rectangle…ok…got that.
then for the cap part, it says:
row 1 knit 19, then K2tog* repeat * for 81 stitches total
row 2 (and all wrong sides) knit
row 3 knit 18, then K2tog* repeat *
row 5 knit 17, then K2tog* repeat *
and so on…
I’m having a hard time visualizing this and when I add it up, I get different numbers for the total stitches. Also, why do I knit the wrong sides (as opposed to decreasing these ones as well)?
Can anyone advise me, or at least tell me that I’m such a newbie and reading way more into it than I should! hee hee =) Thanks so much.
