When I get to the 9th row on this pattern, it says:

9th row: K. 5, turn.

Okay, so I knit 5 stitches and…turn it? How do I turn it? And do I knit the rest of it?


i am assuming you have more than five stitches on your needle. basically you are just turning it like you would if you were at the end of the row.

Oh! Right! There are 40 stitches on the needle.

I’m not quite understanding though…>.<

Sounds like you might be doing short rows. What are you making?

When a pattern tells you to turn in the middle of a row, you ARE making short rows. Just do what they say, turn your work and go back the other way as if you had finished the row.

AH okay, I’ll do my best :slight_smile: I’m making the lion in this pattern http://www.vam.ac.uk/images/image/13090-popup.html


Oh that looks cool!!

I hope you’ll post a piccy when you’re done. :thumbsup:

There should be a beeter way to say this don’tcha think? Like completely turn your work around so it’s facing the other way. Yeah that’s a mouthfull. Hmmm…Gotta think of something better. :thinking:
