i’m having trouble with this scarf pattern in the book scarf style, the pattern is called backyard leaves–maybe one of you knows it already. anyway, the author says that she has added a border of slip-stitch double knitting to keep the edges from rolling. however, the instructions as how to do that are not included and only the lace pattern itself is provided. i would really like to make this scarf as a present for a friend, but i can barely understand it! can anyone help? I know i already posted this same message at another forum, but i’m hoping someone here can help.
Hey :waving: I’ve knit the BYL scarf and I understand what you mean by being mislead by what is written. Just follow the chart & u will do fine. You will see the border that she is referencing as u continue in the pattern it’s created as u work the 1st 3 sts in the chart. As long as you follow the chart you will be fine.
I took my book to Kinko’s and had the chart size increased, then I highlighted the knit rows & left the purl rows blank. I also made an enlarged copy of the key for the chart symbols & taped it in my knitting notebook so I could reference it when needed. Oh, and I use a magnetic board & always have a magnetic strip above the row that I am working on which makes reading the chart much easier, the same can be done with a post it or somethin…it’s just a tool to help me keep my place
Have fun, it’s really fun to knit :cheering: :cheering:
