I am for the most part a self taught knitter/ crocheter. I have found a new pattern for a scarf that I want to do but I am having trouble. Can someone please help me. I have learned a lot of stitches from the videos on this site but I can't find a good one for this pattern. It also says this is a relatively easy pattern but it is making me feel like an idiot..

CO 24 sts.
*Row 1: (RS) k1, turn
Row 2: and all WS rows: purl all sts in that section
Row 3: sl 1, k1, turn
Row 5: sl 1, k2, turn
Row 7: sl 1, k3, turn
Row 9: sl 1, k4, turn
Row 11: sl 1, k5, turn
Row 13: sl 1, k6, turn
Row 15: sl 1, k7. Do not turn.*
Repeat from * to * to end of row, turn.

Hi and welcome. You don't know the rules yet about posting patterns, so let me explain that it violates copyright to put an entire pattern on a forum. Even when free, it still belongs to someone else and they have to give permission for the whole thing to be posted somewhere else. A link or the name of the pattern is better.

So if you could edit your post to the part you're having a problem with that would be great. It looks like this is an entrelac pattern. They read like they're very complicated, but if you follow the instructions step by step they work out.

These are done in 'short rows' where you don't work all the sts, but just one or a few and turn your work as if you were at the end of the row. After the CO you begin by knitting one stitch, turn and purl it. Turn again and slip that same stitch, then knit the next one from the CO, and turn and purl both sts. Turn again and slip 1, k1 plus knit another from the CO then turn and purl them. And so on across, though once you've got 8 sts on the R needle, you start the next triangle. Yes, it's supposed to look funny.

Thank you. I will edit it now. I'm sorry.
I was also wondering about the 1 tier 2 tier. I know that once I get this I will never forget it.. It just takes me a

Since you're working in blocks of stitches, each set of blocks is a 'tier', going across the width, rather than a row. Once you get started on it you will see how it works.

See if this tutorial helps and maybe the video.
