First time "turner"
Greetings all,

I'm an advanced beginner, and I'm going to branch out into cables soon. Before I do, I wanted to make this sort of mock-cable scarf. http://in-my-mothers-name.blogspot.c...f-pattern.html I was thinking I would just repeat Rows 1-10 a bunch of times, no color changing, and it would be cute.

Sadly, this "turn" business is confusing me. I have read many helpful posts about how a turn instruction means you and adding a row where one didn't previously appear. It makes sense in theory, but I just don't understand it in this sense.

With green Cascade 220 wool, CO 40 sts.

Row 1: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 2: Turn, *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 3: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 4: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 5: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 6: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 7: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 8: *K 2, P 2*, rep **
Row 9: Knit across all sts
Row 10: Knit knit across all sts

Repeat row 1 through 10.


If I make the turn at the beginning of Row 2, without doing anything else, I don't even really know what that means. But anyhow, shouldn't I need to repeat it or something?

I'm sorry if I've not made a lot of sense. I hope one of you can share your wisdom.

Thanks in advance!

I think that's in there unecessarily, so you can just ignore it. It's a basic 2x2 rib with every 10th row knit instead of ribbed. That's all you need to do, knit 2 p2 on 9 rows, knit on the 10th.

Thanks!

I didn't see it until now, but what looks like twists or pinches of the ribbing is just the knitting the whole way across.

I really appreciate the help suzeeq! :-)

Yeah... what the heck.... normally, patterns put less in, not more. If you knit flat, you always turn at the end or beginning of a row (you know, glass half empty or full type of thinking). Ignore the turn... if you can't, copy and paste it into word or open office, then take that out, print if you want, etc.

just a side note: rows 9 AND 10 are knit across all stitches. Not just row 10.

Everything else is already clarified.

I missed that, thanks. And row 10 says "Knit knit across all sts" so there's another typo.
