I am a very new, self-taught knitter, and am in desparate need of help to work a pattern.
This pattern from Knitty.com, requires turning the piece and working in short rows as well as using stitch markers. Here is the pattern link: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html
My challenge lies in working the first 2 rows from the pattern:
[i]Row 1: Work all sts in 2x2 Rib.
Row 2: Work in 2x2 Rib as set to last 2 sts, turn work.
Row 3: Sl 1, work 3 sts, place marker, work to last 2 sts, turn work.[/i]
I know how to work in 2x2 Rib, and have the basic stitches and some increase/decrease methods down. I don’t understand what the pattern means on Row 2 by “as set to last 2 sts, turn work”. What does this mean by “as set to”?
P.S.: Does this mean I work to the end of the row (no stitches left on the needle to work), and turn the piece around? Isn’t that what I would be doing anyway?
I have tried like crazy to find a tutorial, picture, or video that can easily explain what “turning the piece” looks like and how to stitch it properly in this pattern.
Please please, pretty please … if anyone can help me out, I would be beyond appreciative. I don’t have anyone I can learn from in person, which is always the best method.
I feel hopelessly lost …
