Explain how to make spirals
Hi! I am a beginning knitter and want to make spirals for a golf head cover. the pattern says: "Cast on 15 sts, (I've done), Row 1: Knit into front, back and front of each stitch across. Row 2: Bind off. It sounds simple, but can anyone explain? It just seems like a jumbled mess! How do you knit into front, back and front of a single stitch?

Increasing twice in every stitch then binding off will make a spiral curlique. Look on the increases page for kfb, then you do an extra st. Knit into the st but leave it on the L needle, then knit into the back of the same st, then into the front of the same stitch.

Just try it and see what it looks like. If you don't like them, you can unravel your yarn and reuse it.
