OK so I want to make a dresser Scarf for my mom for Christmas, I’m trying to put together a pattern for it. I really like the look of the Sugar Scallops that I have in a book, but there are parts of the pattern the confuse me.
Rows within the pattern repeat vary in length from 5-11 stitches. Eleven stitches are cast on for each repeat. When edging is complete, seven stitches remain on to begin the body of the work.
Row 1: Purl
Row 2: K2, *k1 and sl st back onto the source needle, pass next 8 stitches over this stitch and off the neddle, yo 2 times, knit the first stitch again, k2 Repeat from * to end of the row. 5 stitches +2.
Ok there’s a 3rd row too but I understand it.
My questions are:
How does the length of stitches vary? And how will that effect my patten?
The eight stitches that I pass over Won’t be worked that row, right?
Thanks so much! You all are a real help!
