The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief pattern help

Using #8 circular needle with DK baby alpaca yarn. Instructions say: Cast on 2 stitches. Knit 6 rows. Pick up and knit 3 stitches down left side of knitting-one in each garter ridge. Pick up and knit 2 stitches from the 2 cast on stitches. A total of 7 stitches on the needle." After knitting 6 rows with 2 stitches it looked mighty strange. Then whatever I did after that didn’t yield 7 stitches. Does anyone know of a video I can watch or a good tutorial?

Welcome to KH. Garter tab is a great thing to learn. Here’s a video for you; your numbers may differ but the concept is the same.

Thanks so much! The video is very clear. For some reason I wasn’t grasping the concept. Now all I need to do is get back to my project!

Good. I’m glad it helped.
