My name is Chuck and I was hoping I could ask for your help in understanding a section of instructions on a pattern I’m working on It’s just a seed stitch, but I’m not following these directions. The instructions are only a couple of lines long and they instruct you on how to do a seed stitch.
The instructions say:
*over EVEN number of sts
Row 1,3,5,7,9,11: *K1, P1, repeat from *.
Row 2,4,6,8,10,12: *P1, K1, " " *.
*over ODD number of sts
Row 1-12: * K1, P1 repeate from *, end K1.
I don’t understand what they are saying in regardings to the EVEN and ODD number of sts…and all the alternating row numbers they give. First I thought they were referring to EVEN and ODD “ROWS”, but it says “STITCHES”. The EVEN portion mentions rows 1-12 and the ODD portion mentions rows 1-12.
Can you explain what this mean?
Thank you VERY much and I hope everyone here had a great holiday and a wonderful New Year.
