Work in 2 x 2 rib for 3cm (1¼in) ending with rs row.
Next row: Rib 4, rib 2tog (rib 6, rib 2tog) 7 times, rib 4. 58 sts.
Maybe it's the UK pattern but I don't get it!
Hey guys, this is my first post here! I'm a knitting newbie, but I've got two projects under my belt already and another in the works.
I'm knitting the "lovely, easy shawl" pattern from the memories (why, yes, my dorm room is cold) and I was wondering if working an increase at the end of a row is the same as working an increase at the beginning of the subsequent row. Because I'm finding it really hard to keep track of which rows I increased on, and I thought it would be easier if rather that increasing at the beginning and end of every other row I could increase at the beginning of every row. Would this work?
ALSO, I need to block the scarf I just finished. Now, I'm a blocking newbie, but it seems easy enough. However, I am living in a 9 X 9 dorm and I haven't really the space to block, and I want to wear the scarf soon as it's already snowing here and I can't make it home until Thanksgiving. Does anyone have any suggestions about blocking with space constraints?
Have finished a few tiny things - a couple of scarves (which although simple, I love them). But here I present my first posting of FOs - two basic knitted hats, made following instructions in SnB. I love them because, although I am learning to knit with DPNs, they still feel very fiddly and kind of give me fits, and these hats were knitted with a pair of straights and then sewn up. My DPNs are 5" and my straights are 14", and I am enjoying the big ol' sticks.
