10/14/10 - Thanks everyone for the help. I understand the pippi braid now and I want to combine it with a basic braid to make a scarf. I'm basically having the two connected with a column of stockinette. the problem is the pippi braid grows bigger than the standard braid causing the scarf to be uneven (as pictured above). i think its due to the pippi braid requires 4 rows (P6, turn, K6, turn, P6, turn, K6) before I can "twist" it. is there anyway to level the 2 braids? like make the basic braid repeat itself more?
Hi, I'm hoping someone can help explain these instructions clearer. My teacher explained it to me pretty quickly and I just dont remember everything she showed me.
She told me to ignore step 4 and 8 and just purl everything but I don't know which order since I have stuff on my cn and stuff on my regular needles.
and before i even get to step 4, I'm confused with step 3 when it tells me to put my yarn in back.... in back how? through the middle of my needles, in back of just my cable needle?
thanks in advance!
