This is long.
I’ll be camping this long weekend and I won’t have access to this site, so I have to ask my question before I go and hope that I can figure it out without you guys to hold my hand through the scary parts.
Okay, I’m working on a pancho that is joined at the top, and splits at the bottom. I’ll submit a picture when I get it finished. I’m knitting it from the bottom up. Basically, I’m knitting back and forth on circ needles and will join them with a cable st and knit in the rnd to finish.
Here’s the question:
So, I’m working in my established pattern for 9 inches (the bottom of the pancho), I do a cable cross, and work some more rows, and cross back. My problem starts wtih the second cable cross. It reads:
(Second Cross) Slip 6 sts to a cn and hold back. k6, join new yarn and k6 from cn, p2. Tur to work other side. (Question 1, are they saying that I should be out of yarn on my ball and start a new ball, or should I be using two threads together?)
Back Top Band: K2, p6, turn. *K6, p1, p3tog, turn. Sl1 (purlwise) (What does purlwise mean?), k1 p6, turn. Rep from * 53 times, turn. K6, p2, turn. Bind off 8 sts. (With both yarns…assuming that was the answer to Q1)
Front Top Band: Return to other ball of yarn (Not sure where this ball came from). (WS) P6, k2, turn. **Sl1 (purlwise), p1 k6, turn. P6, k1, s3k, turn (what is s3k?). Rep from **. Bind off 8 sts. Sew ends of band tog.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
