have a pattern for a scarf which has a particular "cross-stitch" pattern that is repeated. Was wondering if someone could help with this? maybe if it was worded a little different, i could understand it better.
cast on 21sts
row 1: K2, pm, work cross-stitch pattern on next 17sts, pm, K2
row 2: K2, sm, " " " " " " " sm, K2
cross stitch pattern:
row 1: *Knit the 2nd stitch without removing it from needle by reaching behind and inserting needle between 1st and 2nd stitch, knit the 1st stitch and take both stitches off left needle; repeat from *, end K1
row 2: *Purl the 2nd stitch without removing it from needle, purl 1st stitch and take both stitches off left needle; repeat from *, end P1
repeat rows 1 and 2 for pattern.
i think i am making this more difficult than it has to be but i'm frustrated. i appreciate any help. thanks
