I am a Chinese girl. I currently study in Edinburgh, Scotland. My fiance gave up his job in China and came to stay with me in Scotland. I love him very much, and I thought it would be nice if I could knit him a pair of gloves.
However, I have never done something like this before. The toughest project I have done was knitting him a scarf. He absolutely loved it. However, tell you the truth, I even did not do the binding off right. I just learnt the proper way from this web site.
Now, I have bought a leavelet which teaches me how to knite the gloves. The problem is it is too professional to me. :rollseyes: I just do not understand 90% of them.
I wonder if someone would like to help me. The leavelet says:
Tension 24 sts and 30 rows to 10cm (41n), over stocking stich on 3 3/4 mm needles or the size to give correct tension.
What is tension?
Using 3mm needles cast on 33 [37:41:45] sts.
What does this mean?
1st Row. K1, *p1,k1,rep from * to end. (Knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, and repeat purl 1 and knit 1 until the end, right?)
2nd Row, *p1, k1 rep from * to last st, p1.
These 2 rows will now be referred to as 1x1 rib. ???????
Work in 1x1 rib for 5 [5:6:6] cm (What does this mean?), (2[2:2 1/2: 2 1/2] in), ending with a rs row. ( I am totally lost here)
Next Row. Rib 6, Pick up loop between last and next st and work into the back of this loop (this will now be referred to as m1). (rib 5[6:7:8], m1) 4 times, rib 7, 38 [42:46:50] sts.
Change to 3 3/4mm needles and proceed as follows:-
1st row. knit
2nd row, purl ( these is English.
These 2 rows will now be referred to as st-st (stocking stitch).
Working in st-st (throughout) work
4 rows. **
