I am knitting a top called White Lily, Drops No. 101/23, I am having trouble with chart M1
Hello, sorry, I cannot seem to download the chart, I can read it but cannot understand it.
Row 1 is K 3 purl 5, repeat all the way round.
Row 2, knit 3 lift the first stitch over the other 2, then 2 YO into the purl? Then purl 4 more.
Row 3 knit 3, but the last stitch is into the previous YO and the chart says to purl 1 YO and drop the other? This is where I am confused.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Hi and welcome to Kh!
Row 2 is k3, lift the first stitch over the other 2, then a double yarn over before the 5 purls. Remember that a yarn over doesn’t use a stitch. Bring the yarn to the front between the needles, around the right needle twice in this case and then proceed with the rest of the chart (purl 5).
The double yo gives you extra yarn in a new stitch. When you come to it in row 3, purl into the first and drop the second yo. It’s actually all one big loop anyway.
Thank you so much, I didn’t expect such a quick response. I will give it a go.
