I've been knitting for years so I'm not exactly a beginner, but my skill is beginner-level since I've never tried to make anything more complex than a hat. (I only recently discovered how to make a cable pattern!)
So, I've been trying to make sense of the directions for this
I can make out what the first page says, but not what the second page says. I'm lost at "CO 48 sts between first and second scarf. Work remaining scarf to end in pattern. Turn. (100 sts)"
It started off with 26 stitches. When did it turn into 48? Everything, including this, is gibberish. I really want to make this for a friend, so could someone please dumb it down for me?
