I searched but did not see anything on this. Feel free to point me to the information if it exists already!
I’m a beginner and making my second scarf (the first was just knitting). I want to do a scarf with 2k2p2k for 24 stitches. Several people told me to have the first stitch be a slip stitch (this means to me that I don’t knit or purl the first stitch, just move the loop to the needle).
- do I now cast on 25 stitches where the first is slip stitch and the other 24 are knitted/purled?
- if I slip the first stitch and 2k2p2k the other 24, what happens on the next row? Slip stitch, 1p2k2p? or slip stitch, 2p2k2p…etc.
I’m hoping I’m explaining myself.
Any other advice on a simple scarf is welcome!
