Hi,

I'm a new member. Saw the help required for Mittens on Twitter. My name is Rachel Blunden and I've been knitting for 30 years last August. My mum taught me to knit when I was 6.

I live in Twyford, a village to the East of Reading, Berkshire UK.

Cannot Understand a Pattern Instruction
Greetings to all fellow knitting buffs. This world wide web stuff is new to me. So please bear with me. I am attempting to knit an afghan and I am having trouble with one piece of the instructions. It goes like this:

Cast on 62 stitches.
Rows 1,3,7,9 are just a hodge podge of 'K's and P's.

Rows 2,6 and 10 are where my problem starts. The first part of row 2 starts out similar to row 1 then it goes like this: *in the next st (K1, P1, K1), purl 3 sts tog, repeat from * 3 times;

By the time I purl 3 sts tog 3 times I don't have enough sts rmg to complete the 62 sts. Can someone please help me. I will be eternally grateful. Retired Pat.

I don't think that a copyright is necessary. Here's what I've found about it online:

You will do the first part "in the next st (K1,P1,K1)" ALL IN ONE STITCH. In other words, don't move the stitch to the right needle until you do all three of those stitches in the same loop.

By the way, you'll get more answers to pattern help questions, if you post your question in the "How To" section, or the "Patterns" section.

Good luck!

Hi all! I am also new to this site. I found it a few weeks ago when I decided to try to teach myself to knit but had only utilized some of the videos until today. I have been crocheting for a little over a year, mostly hats and working on a couple of afghans. I am a visual learner, so its taken me some time to get the hang of some things but I'm making progress in crochet so thought I'd see how well I can get the hang of knitting as well. I'm really enjoying it so far

I look forward to expanding my talent with both hook and needle!

Happy New Year!

Hi, everyone!

My name is Allie and I'm 23 years old. About ten years ago, while visiting family in Russia, my grandmother attempted to teach me how to knit. All I remember from that session was the scratchy dark blue yarn and the metal needles she used. (I think I may still have them somewhere...) It wasn't until 2 years ago that I tried it again with any kind of seriousness. I didn't know anyone else who knitted so I bought the book Stitch 'n' Bitch and tried to teach myself. That didn't work out so well and I got discouraged, so I put the needles away in a dark corner of my apartment.

In December 2009, I finally picked up the needles again for good when a crafty coworker offered to observe my technique and let me know what I was doing wrong. Coupled with Knitting Help, I finally got it! Any time I have a question about something I read in a pattern or a book, I turn to this site. It has clear videos and instructions that I can understand and easily follow! Thank you, Amy, for this wonderful site.

Anyway. I apologize for this long-winded introduction... but I'm very excited to be here

Hi, everyone! My name is Nichole and I'm 25 years old. My grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet when I was a kid and I just recently picked it back up. I've been asking her for help, but for the most part it all came back to me. I'm very excited to be here.
