Can it be 3 weeks already? Time sure flies when you're knittin'. We know we have at least a little company on this knitting adventure. Grandma Coco's liking the way ours is going.
This week we'll add 6 inches of the Broken Rib Diagonal. There are so many traditional stitch patterns out there that would work in this manly scarf, we keep changing our minds on which one to do next.
There are now 46 stitches on the needle. Remember the 5 garter stitch border stitches on each edge.
The Broken Rib Diagonal goes like this:
Row 1 (Right Side): * k4, p2; repeat from * to end.
Row 2: * k2, p4; repeat from * to end.
Row 3: same as Row 1
Row 4: same as Row 2
Row 5: k2 * p2, k4; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, p2, k2
Row 6: p2 * k2, p4; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, k2, p2
Row 7: same as Row 5
Row 8: same as Row 6
Row 9: * p2, k4; repeat from * to end.
Row 10: * p4, k2; repeat from * to end
Row 11: same as Row 9
Row 12: same as Row 10
Repeat these 12 rows, 3 times. (36 rows)

We knit 6 rows this time, even….no increases or decreases (46 stitches total) for the separator section.
