Greetings, everyone! I have a question concerning a scarf pattern.
It’s the pattern in the book, “Best Summer Knits” July '14 issue pg. 68 “Midsummer Scarf” pattern.
I’ve been working on this for a while. I’ve gotten up to a point that confuses me a little – something that a youtube video can’t help with.
The piece of the pattern is written thus:
[B]-- Work in St. st for 4’’ ending with a WS row.
– Next row (RS) *K2tog; rep from * across; 35 sts.
– Repeat rows 1-4 of broomstick lace patt. 3 times, knitting 2 rows even between repeats.
Rows 1 (RS) and 2: Knit
Row 3: *K1, [yo] twice; rep from * to last st, k1.[/B]
I’ve knit 4’’ and followed up to the RS knit 2 together and at 35 sts. I moved on to the broomstick lace pattern like it says to. But that’s where I’m confused at.
If the k2tog to get 35 stitches is the RS, and the start of the broomstick lace pattern also starts on the RS … what do I do? … I knitted two rows of knit pattern, like the beginning of the broomstick lace pattern says to do but … I’m afraid to go forward because I don’t want to be on the wrong side of the scarf and have the lace stitch on the wrong side. Am I just not seeing something? Currently, I’m on the WS of the fabric right now, waiting to do Row 3 of the broomstick lace pattern.
Any help will be most appreciated.
