What is the problem that you're having with it?

02-04-2006, 11:02 PM
okay it's a bit confusing .. but here it goes

1. cast on 2st with one ball cast on 2st with another ball or other ends
2. now working in rev st st inc 1 st at each end of the next 3 rows = 8 sts

does this mean 8 sts all together or in each leg ??

Yes, you increase at each end of both legs to increase to 8 on each leg.

While you're working the legs separately, each line of direction is done on each leg.

okay that is fine but the instructions said for the next 3 rows and it took more than 3 row to get to 8 st on each leg ..

now it says work 15 even rows ... which means and even rev st st ?? right .. now would that be should end up to 15 row because it took me about 6 rows to get to the 8 sts on each leg so that means i need to do 9 more rows ??

I'm sorry i just wish they replied to me regarding their patterns . or at least write them just a little more clearer .. if you know what i mean

I think you misread the pattern. You increase at EACH END on the first three rows. That gives you 2 increases per row=6 increases on the three rows.

okay i started all over again .. and i did the following

cast on 2 st cast on 2 st

Row 1 = knit 1 , knit 1 with 1 inc = 3 st // knit 1, knit 1 with 1 inc = 3 st
total 6 st
row 2 = knit 2 knit 1 w/1inc = 4 st // knit 2 knit 1 w/1 inc = 4 st
total 8 sts
Row 3 = knit 3 knit 1 w/1 inc = 5 st // knit 3 knit 1 w/ 1inc = 5 st
total 10 sts

how do you get 8st in each side with 3 rows ??

You have 2 on your needle.

row 1 - if you increase in each stitch, you have 4
row 2 - if you increase at each end, you have 6
row 3 - if you increase at each end, you have 8

Row 1 kfb in both stitches =4
Row 2 kfb, k2, kfb=6
Row 3 kfb, k4, kfb=8

You increase at each end of each row (leg) and in your first row that is 2 stitches, each stitch is the end, so increase in each of those first stitches to end up with 4 when you are done with the first row, then increasing twice each row (at each end) should get you to 8.

okay now i get it . but it says reverse stocknette stitch .. so it purl row 1 and knit row 2 and purl row 3 right .. or all knit ??

It's purl one row, knit one row, but the purl bumpy side will be the right side.

When I said 'knit' I should have said 'work'

just making sure .. what i want to know what is the difference .. since i am using the yarn plush and it's all bumpy anyways .. seams silly .. but i am doing as we are talking ..

i just now connected the legs .. thank you for your help
