I'm feeling stupid....
Ok, I'm still pretty green at :XX: and i'm a little embarrassed to have to ask but..... I need help!
Thought i'd try an "easy idiot's" dishcloth for practice. OK... I got the:
CO4, K 1 row (now here's the hard part)Next row, k2 inc in next st, k1(what does k2 inc in next st mean? how many stitches should i now have?I'm thinking 6? so I can do the next row?)Next row, k2,yo,k to end of row. repeat the k2,yo,k until you have 45 sts on the needle. Complete instructions are above the pic in the description box.
TIA,
Kelly

well i am fairly green myself and you will prolly want to wait for a second opinion but i am thinking you will have 5 stitches and they are basically telling you to knit into the front and back of the next stitch.

To inc 2 in the next stitch, you can knit, purl, knit into the next stitch. So you're turning one st into three. If you just knit into the front and back, you'll increase one stitch.

So you cast on 4

Then your first st gets increased to 3, plus the other three makes 6.

Next row, and every row after that you're increasing one with the yo at the beginning of each row.

Your pic looks like it's coming out correctly.

I edited this because, well, I goofed and brendajos set me straightt. Kudos to her.

You're absolutely right. I goofed.

I think the problem here is the the directions say you start with 4.

The next directions say inc2 in the next st, k1 That still equals four. It shouldn't, though.

I think it's reading K2 stitches, then increase into the next one (the 3rd st), and then k1. You should have 5 total at the end of this row.

The reason I don't think it's saying increase twice into the next stitch is that the pattern doesn't tell you what to do with the rest of the row. It just says K2 incr next stitch, k1. If you do that you're only working with two of the 4 stitches on that row. I don't think this is a short row pattern where you turn halfway through, or every row in the pattern would tell you to do that.

Also, notice how the pattern says to k2 at the beginning of every row? That's the other reason why I think it's k2, then inc.

well that's what i read too the first time but then when you read it without the punctuation it seems like it is saying to knit two into the next stitch, i don't think i have ever seen it written like that before but i haven't read that many patterns either. :thinking:

This makes sense, too. :thinking: But, hey, its a washcloth, the pic looks good, it's one stitch we're talking about here. I say forge ahead.
