I want an afgan, but before I get on a big project I figured that a small version would be fun and a good test for my patience and skills. Plus I got to admit, I enjoy the quick fix I get from completing smaller projects.
I was wondering about the increase used in the pattern below… would you do a yarn over or knit in the front and back of the stitch? My guess is the later, however I am still new to the craft. I will be using size 50 needles so the stitch will show.
With one strand of each color held together (4 strands), cast on 3 sts.
Rows 1 and 2 [B][COLOR=“Blue”]Inc in first st[/COLOR][/B], k to end of row – 5 sts after row 2.
Row 3 (RS) K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1.
Row 4 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 3-4 until diagonal edge measures about 30” [76 cm] – 43 sts.
Row 5 (RS) K1, yo, sk2p, k to last st, yo, k1.
Row 6 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 5-6 until longer diagonal edge measures about 36” [91.5 cm].
Row 7 (RS) K1, yo, sk2p, k to last 4 sts, k3tog, yo, k1.
Row 8 K2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat rows 7-8 until 7 sts remain.
Next row Sk2p, k1, k3tog - 3 sts.
Next row Purl.
Thanks for helping out!!
