Prayer shawl, or, I'm really confused
I decided to make a prayer shawl for my church (they have a program for hospice patients in our nearby hospital). So this lady gives me 3 balls of Lion Homespun and tells me, cast on 63, knit every row for 6-8", then k3p3.
However, she just called and left me a message to knit every row for 6-8 ROWS (which made me put it down immediately until I understood) and then her instructions for k3p3 started sounding more like k3 rows then p3 rows. I'm really confused.
Now, to reiterated, it's free yarn, for a good cause, and boucle-y so the recipient isn't going to see or care what pattern I used. But I have no idea what happens if you do k3p3 in a 6+3 repeat, (certainly not a rib) and I have no idea why I would *ever* knit 3 rows then purl 3 rows. Can anyone with a bit more experience help me figure out what she meant? Was she just explaining too much?
