I would love to knit this headband
for my friend, and I've been pouring over tutorial videos for any and all bits I didn't understand immediately. So I now know how to make short rows.
However, this pattern seems to have you ignore the last five stitches, and then the last 5, then 7, then 9 stitches at each end, so you're only working the middle for a long while, so maybe it makes a sort of more ovally than rectangular shape?
I just want to know: Am I reading this correctly? Do you indeed ignore the ends for most of the pattern?
Thank you so much!
(P.S. I don't know if this should be in the "pattern" subforum, but I apologize if I misfiled it.)
