I am a beginner at knitting, and have had a lot of trouble reading various patterns. I searched the Internet and also this forum for suggestions and directions on reading patterns, but couldn’t find anything that seemed to cover this topic!
I just want a book that will include information about reading patterns. Not just definitions for the abbreviations, but stuff that would, for example, explain what “cont in established patt” means. Does it mean to repeat the rows I just knitted? Or do I proceed up the rows on the pattern chart even though row 1 was the only row on the pattern chart that was referenced in the above lines? And what about “at the same time”? How can something happen at the SAME TIME as something else?!?
Help stop me from going crazy…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
