I am tearing my hair out trying to figure out the pattern from a book (not sure if I can post the name of the book). I am really having a hard time with this! I am posting the first few lines so someone can help unbaffle me.
Cast on 10 sts
Row 1: [k1, yo twice, k1], k7 wt
row 2: slip 1, k7, [k2, p1, k1].
row 3: [k4], k6, wt.
row 4: slip 1, k6, [k2tog twice, loosely].
It seems simple enought, but I don’t understand how I wrap a stitch at the end of the row. Once I wrap, the yarn is now is the front of the stitch when I turn the work around. Do I wrap it all the way around or just bring it to the back (where it was) and continue from there?? Also, why are some stitches in brackets? Do I slip the first stitch of row 2 knitwise or purlwise? The second row assumes I have 12 stitches - where did the extra two come from if I only did “one” yarn over on the previous row?
On row 3 - after I knit the 10 sts, do I wrap the yarn and turn the work even if I have 2 unknitted stitches remaining?
This pattern is sooo confusing!
Thanks in advance.
