Hi, arlmeenan. This is the place for anyone who wants to improve their kniiting skills. You can join at www.ravelry.com (it's free) and have access to zillions of patterns. When you find one you like you can start a thread and ask away if anything confuses you.

Hi ame and welcome to Knitting Help! It's always good to hear from a new knitter. Some people like to start with scarves because they're flat and can be done in very plain stitch patterns but I think something smaller is a little less boring. You could try a dishcloth or just small squares until you're more comfortable with knit stitch and purl stitch. Take a look at the videos under the Free Videos tab at the top of the page, Getting Started.
Glad to have you join us.

Hi there, Gregory. Welcome. Whatever help you need, just ask. You'll find we're a helpful bunch. We were all beginners at the beginning and 2 years after I started I still learn something new with every new project. Have fun!

Your pattern repeat is 14 + 2 stitches. That means that each repeat of the pattern takes a multiple of 14 + 2, 28 + 2, 42 + 2, etc. Added to that would be one stitch at each edge.

new here
I am new to this forum.
I first learned to knit in the 7th grade, many, many years ago.
A few years ago I started lace knitting. I like challenges.
I also love using beautiful and unique yarns.
I also like to crochet and do beading -- and I collect dolls (BJD).

I am glad to hace a place to come to for help.
