Help with Debbie Bliss "Alex"
I'm still working on the Alex from DB. I got through the two front halves and the back and now I'm struggling with the collar. My problem is with holes. There is this part that reads: k12, turn, sl 1, p9, k2 and that I should do that for two rows. The consecutive rows have similar instructions. So, what I'm doing is: knitting the twelve then turning the knitting to the purl side, leaving the yarn in front, slipping the stitch onto the right needle, then pearling the rest till the last two that I knit. The next row I do the same, and then the next row on to the next 28, turn, sl1, p25, k2. Every time I do this I get a hole. Do you guys think I'm supposed to have this hole? I don't see it on the picture, but perhaps since it doesn't show. Is this a decorative thing? My teacher came to the same conclusion, that it is somehow supposed to be that way, but I'm not convinced. Am I doing something wrong? I've done the first ten rows, including ripping them out several times to figure it out, but I can redo them if anyone has a clue. If not, I'll just have to accept the holes as part of the pattern and hope that the mystery will be revealed when I put it together...

Hoping for clarity, Kim
