New member, needs help using site

I am a new member and a new knitter. I am trying to follow a pattern for a cable scarf that’s very pretty from a book I got at Michael’s. I have trouble reading it and need help but don’t know how to post my question here. I hope someone will see this and direct me to the right way. Thank you.

Hi KnittinNurse! :waving:

I copied your question here in the “How To” section, so you will get some help.

Can you tell us the name of the pattern book? Some of us may already have the book ourselves, and we will be able to help you better.

Have you joined Ravelry?

They have loads of patterns from books and if yours is there, copy the http link from the top of the page and paste it into the reply box here and we will be able to have a look
