I'm relatively new to knitting, so I'm not likely to be judgmental of a pattern. However, a copy of a pattern I got from a yarn shop is really confusing me; it just doesn't seem right.
Its supposed to be a cabled scarf, but the pattern only has me doing 1 row of cabling. I'm confused! Does anyone know this pattern (listed below)? Help! I don't want to wait until Saturday to go back to the shop for answers, that would be 3 nights of not knitting my project!!!
So here is the pattern I was given:
Row 1- K2 P2 (14sts), place marker, P3, K8, P3, place marker, K2 P2 (14sts)
Row 2- P2, K2 (14sts), K3, P8, K3, P2 K2(14sts)
Row 3- Cable Row: K2 P2 (14sts), P3, put 4sts on cable needle and hold in front, K4, K4 from cable, P3, K2 P2 (14sts).
Continue as follows:
Row 4: same as row2
Row 5: same as row1
repeat to 10........
Repeat rows 1-10
That's all of the pattern. What happened to repeating row 3, the cable row?
(And why do I need a place marker, is it just to help count out those 14sts?)
I'd appreciate some direction so that I can be doing more of this
and less of this
Thanks very much,
