lillybet said:I am not sure...I guess I didn't even know bonnets had names. I have a real cute pattern to knit that I like, but I can not figure out the second half of the directions...I have only been knitting for 5 years and feel lucky to have made a number of sweaters , mittens and baby sets...
lillybet said:Here is the bonnet pattern (instructions)
NO 10 needles
Cast on 37 stitches.K6rows.K1*YO,K2Tog*
repeat across row (37) stitches
Knit every row until 4" from cast on row.
Knitacross 12 sts. (TROUBLE FOR ME STARTS HERE))Put these 12 sts on piece of yarn, or DP needle.Knit across 14 sts, put remaining sts on yarn or DP needle.
* TURN, K2 Tog.,Knit to end of row , K1 stitch from stitches on yarn or needle*, repeat this one row until center 14 sts remain. Break yarn.
With # 6 needle, starting at front edge with yarn,pick up14 sts. K2 Tog across back sts(??????????????) to make 7 sts.
Pick up 14 sts. other side (35sts). Knit back.
K1 *YO,K2Tog.* repeat across row.
knit back,knitting YO's
Bind off with # 10 needles
Complicated I guess
lillybet said:I am confused by the word back for sure...
When it says turn K2Tog are the referring to sts on the holder ?? This baffled me
Then the (Starting at front edge? does that just me the right side?
I am just totally confused I think , from after I put the sts on the yarn or whatever
lillybet said:I think I know why I gave up on this pattern hahhaahahahha
You are very funny! (by the way) Instead of calling your mom, I may call the trash man to take this out of my hands!!Then I will stop trying...This is why I am looking for a new pattern,,,Sort of sad tho, cause I made the booties and sweater that match
Thanks for your help and for the laughs...I need them when I get distraught...as do we all
lillybet said:Welll!!!!!! Thank you sooo much for all of your kind and encouraging words Donna!
I am actually sitting here doing just what you said. I am thinking that I may have figured it out...so trying ot again.
Of course in the back of my head I know that I have already gone through this (thinking I can) I will try for a while Then put it to bed...
Talk to you tomorrow Thanks so much..
Have a great snuggle
