Hello all, I learned to knit from a scandanavian woman in college. Didn’t really do it until recently (I am 40!) when I picked up the same ball of yarn and needles and retaught myself the basics!
I figured it was actually time to make something! Anyway, I am getting to a point that is confusing to me because I don’t know all the lingo.
It says to place 38 sleeve stitches on a stitch holder, With backward loop cast on 10 stitches, rejoin yarn and purl across back. What does rejoin yarn mean?
Then after you have the body knit, the heading is Edging. It says
[I]Place a marker to mark the beginning of the edging round. Pick up and knit stitches up right front of the cardigan (pick up 2 sts for every 3 rows), place a 2nd marker at the top of the right front, continue to pick up and knit 1 sts in every stitch around the neckline
(across right shoulder,across back, across left shoulder. Pick up and knit sts down the left front, picking up 2 sts for every 3 rows. Knit across all bottom edge sts ending at the beginning of round marker.
Next round: SM, purl around all edging sts ending back at beginning of the round marker. SM
Next round: knit to 3 sts before next marker, bind off 2 sts, SM, knit to end of round.
Next round: purl to previously bound off sts, remove marker, purl to end of round.
Next round: knit all sts.
Last round: Use #8 needle to bind off all sts knit-wise.[/I]
What does it mean to pick up 2 sts. every three rows?
What is bind-off knit-wise?
Thanks so much!
