I need some help with a pattern that i thought i understood until i started trying to knit it.
I’m trying to make this Puffy Cloth dishcloth.
The pattern says:
[color=red]Row 1 (Right side): P2, *(k1, p1) twice in next st forming 4 puff sts), p2, k1, p2; rep from *.
Row 2: K2, *p1, k2; (k1, yo) 3 times and k1 on the 4 puff sts; k2; rep from *. [/color]
Row 3: P2, *(k1, drop yo) 3 times and k1 on the 4 puff sts; p2, k1, p2; rep from *.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
Row 6: K2, *p1, k2, p4 tog (completing puff), k2; rep from *.
Row 7: P2, *k1, p2, (k1, p1) twice in next st, p2; rep from *.
Row 8: K2, *(k1, yo) 3 times and k1 on 4 puff sts, k2, p1, k2; rep from *.
Row 9: P2, *k1, (k1, drop yo) 3 times and k1 on the 4 puff sts; p2; rep from *.
Row 10: Repeat Row 8.
Row 11: Repeat Row 9.
Row 12: K2, *p4 tog (completing puff), k2, p1, k2; rep from *.
I’m kinda stuck on rows 1 and 2. I understand when it says k1 p1 twice in next stitch i’m making bunch of new stitches (although the k and p stitches together are a bit faffy and i hate doing them because it twists the yarn like crazy!!) but then when i come back on row 2 it says k1 yo three times on the puff stitch.
This is where i’m having lots of trouble. I have been trying to purl up to it, then k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1 - is that what they mean by k1 yo 3x then k1? when doing this in the newly made puff stitches i run out of room. What i mean is that i’ve made a bunch of new stitches but these k1 yo stitches on row 2 seem to go further along and into the intervening pattern outside of the puff
What am i doing wrong?? :?? I dont’ get this pattern but i like the look…
sigh just when i thought i was “getting it”
