A cardigan pattern I want to make says "MK" and defines it as K1,p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 all into next st, then pass 6th,5th,4th,3rd,2nd and 1st sts. over 7th st. How on Earth do you do this? Thank you!
1. You need to work relatively loosely.
2. There are too many stitches to be worked on a single stitch - it will be very difficult with the needle you are actually working with. Take a spare needle - any type, cable needle, whatever, best metal one, best somewhat smaller in size. Work one stitch (like, K1) and transfer it back to the main needle in your right (left, if you work with your left hand mainly) hand, do the next - again with the spare needle - in that same stitch - say, p1 - transfer that over etc. till you get all of them. Than take the smaller sized spare needle and start, one st. at a time, to pull the stitches over the last stitch on your needle - till you have them all down.
And after that you can pull the thread a bit to secure the stitch and make it less loose.
Bobbies look really nice once you get use to them.
