Last week we were all about trying new things like the cable cast-on and cabling without a special needle. This week, let’s take things easy with a simple texture stitch.
There are now 47 stitches on the needle. Remember the 5 garter stitch border stitches on each edge.
Row 1 (Right side): P1, * (K2, P1) repeat from * to end.
Row 2: K1, * (P2, K1) repeat from * to end.
Row 3: same as 1st row
Row 4: knit
Repeat these 4 rows, 9 times. (36 rows)
Here’s the chart for you chart lovers. Please remember, you need to be aware which side of the work you’re on…..the right (public) side or the wrong (not meant to be seen) side. In this instance, the odd rows are the right side and the evens are the wrong side. Hope that’s clear.
Work the separator section:
Knit 4 rows this time, decreasing 1 stitch in the middle of the last row by knitting 2 stitches together. (46 stitches total)
And now, at the end of Week # 2, here’s what we have…..
If you have any questions, please just ask. And, if you'd like to join us on Ravelry to meet other knitters who are also working on The Papa Bear Sampler Scarf Knit-along, you'll find us here. We have a group!
