I am making a dress for a knitted doll. The pattern starts with the skirt portion.
This is something I haven't come across before "SK". It reads this way:
(SK-k5, I-k1, SK-k4) 5 times.
(SK-k4, I-k1, SK-k1, k1, I-k1, SK-k3) 5 times.
(SK-k3, I-k1, SK-k3, I-k1, SK-k2) 5 times.
(SK-k2, I-k1, SK-k5, I-k1, SK-k1) 5 times.
It goes on, but I think if I understand how the SK (skipped stitch, right?) physically looks and works, I'll be ok.
I just dont' get it. If I skip a stitch all together....won't it then be a dropped stitch and fall apart?
Or is a skipped stitch the same as a slipped stitch? Or???
I've been looking forward to making these dresses for my nieces. My yarn finally arrived and now I'm stuck. Drat! If anyone can help, I will be most grateful!
