Hi all, I am fairly new to knitting. I know how to do some basic things, but I am not sure how to follow this pattern and was hoping some of you could help me get on the right track. Here is how it reads:
(it is a scarf with hood)
Scarf:Cast on 33 sts. K in pattern for 23 inches(or desired lenght).
K2 inches in garter st.
Row 1-K 16,inc 1 st.in next st.by knitting in back and front of same st.,knit to end.
Row 2-Knit this and all even rows.
Row 3- Knit 18,inc. in next st., knit to end.
Row 5- Knit 20,inc. in next st.knit to end.
Continue in pattern as established until there are 40 stitches on needle.
My 1st question is at the very beginning- Cast on 33-(did that)
Knit in pattern for 23 inches??-don’t understand where and when to do this?
Next question is-Continue in pattern as established- ok- after row 5 do I knit row 6 and then got to Row 1 (knit 16(etc)?
Here is what I did and I am afraid it is wrong- I cast on my 33 stitches and knit 2 inches in garter stitch then did Row 1, Row 2 Row 3 Row 4, Row 5.
I’m sorry this is so long,but need some help understanding it
