I have made my 1st foray away from scarves and have been stumped by the pattern description. I’m pretty sure its an interpretation issue so if you can help I’d appreciate it!
ok, 53 stitches k2, p2 rpt to last stitch k1
and on for 18cm
[B][I]then here’s my problem[/I][/B]
k2, (p3tog, k1) 12 times, p2, k1 (29stitches)
[I]is that k2, then p3tog, k1, then k2, then p2, then I’m stuck… it looks like i’d have to have k2, p3tog, k1 12 times as there’s not enough stitches! I assume the () means that should only be done once, but with the “12 times” after that means I’d have to do k24 which makes no sense [/I]
k2, p2, (k1,p1) 12 times, k1
K1, (ssk) 12times, k2tog (16 stitches)
[I]ssk? what the? I just noticed that for the 1st time! And I thought I’d read the pattern [blush][/I]
k1, p to last stitch, k1
k2tog 8 times across row (8 stitches)
break yarn, run through stitches and pull.
[I]Breaking yarn I can do :happydance: [/I]
Hope someone can help. I was so proud of myself, finding a pattern choosing colours and doing stripes, it looks even and got to the point of decreasing and now I’m stumped!
