I'm still on my quest of leaning new knitting "things" and found this pattern and thought since it said "easy", I'd give it a try.
http://knitmama78.blogspot.com/2009/06/lake-ariel-dishcloth-free-pattern.html
My question is with row 4....it says SL1KW, K1, P1, *K2tog, YO, K1, YO, K2tog* to last 3 sts, K1, P2
The way I read this is I will have TWO K2tog. If you repeat between the *....I think that's what you are suppose to do. When I looked at the picture on the website, and my "project", I appear to have 7 rows of little holes, where she has 6. I've never done YO's or slip stitches before....it's a journey for me.... Thanks for taking it with me...Rae :roll:

(((((((( What knitting method do you use, Rae? English; Continental? I forget back to when we did the cable scarf knit-a-long.

I'll work this pattern up tonight for a few rows as I also like DC patrerns. See notes in (((((( )))))) below.

((((((((( Copying and pasting checking for accuracy:
R4 (RS) - SL1KW, K1, P1, *K2tog, YO, K1, YO, K2tog* to last 3 sts, K1, P2.

It's good to go......))))))))))

((((((( Yes......repeat those across to the last 3 sts. ))))))

When I looked at the picture on the website, and my "project", I appear to have 7 rows of little holes, where she has 6.
(((((((((( Did you notice that the pattern was originally for 42 CO/s but another poster caught it and it was changed? )))))))

(((((( Since you have another repeat of the pattern stitch, verify how many you CO; If 41, you're good to go and I'm guessing the issue is in how you did the YO as you have picked up more stitches somehow.

Does the lace pattern stitch work out for you compared to the picture? If so, you just have another row of the pattern stitch and are wondering why....

It's amazing you kept in pattern if so, so pat yourself on the back for that. @@

Let me know which one, please in a private message, verify your knitting method.........or, go to the web for how to do a YO. If you're English, throwing, add that to your keyword search. If it's continental, search for that, too. It's created far differently than the English YO.

If you're eastern continental knitting, we can talk about that later! LOL!

Hope this helps!

Yes, you have two k2tog in the repeated section. Based on the number of cast-on stitches you should have 7 repeats of the pattern, so 7 pairs of holes would be right. (41 cast-on minus 6 edge stitches = 35. 35 divided by 5 stitches repeated = 7) I don't think the sample picture in the pattern was made with 41 cast-on stitches. I think it was made with 36. I think you are right on track! :)

Thank you.....I still have 41 stitches on my needle, so was happy about that. The two k2tog seemed odd to me for some reason, so thought I'd check since the picture looked different. I wonder why they would post of picture different from the pattern....oh well, I'm off and running again.

I'm a thrower....and proud of it!!!! :thumbup:
I still have my 41 stitches so didn't add or take any away, so that's a good thing. I'm going to trudge on and see what happens as I get further along. Thanks :D

as I read row 4 it says slip 1 knitwise,, k1/p1/*K2tog, YO,k1,YO ,k2tog,*to lastl3 stitches, K1,P2. In order to keep from increasing or decreasing the number of k2tog and the yo need tp be equal, other wise your work will be wider with extra YO, or narrower with extra k2 tog. Do not worry about the pattern picture.it can be deceiving. follow the directions and finish the project before comparing. If it does not match and is the proper shape, then I would question if the picture went with the pattern and send an e-mail to the posting party questioning jif they posted the right picture. Good luck and happy knitting :thumbup: Kaju
