I'm a newish knitter and have been continuously knitting scarves and hats for a good six months. I think I have enough of them to get both my dh and I through winter without having to wear the same ones twice :D I love them all but I'm ready for something new and exciting.
I have the Debbie Bliss Seven Pattern book and fell in love
with the "Isabella" poncho. I started on said poncho and I'm REALLLLLLLLLY Confused! My question is this, how many rows am I supposed to do the st st on? The only info I have for the pattern is this:
Actual Measurements: Length to center at front 19 1/14 in
Materials - 10 sk of SoHo
1 pr size 9 needles
To Make (Make 2)
Cast On 160 sts
K 1 row
Beg with a knit row, work in st st, shaping as follows
1st row (RS) K1, sko, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
2nd row P to end
rep the last 2 rows until 66 sts rem, ending with a rs row.
K 1 row
I have all the right stuff, and cast on the 160 sts - and followed the above. I created the worlds smallest half of a poncho utilizing less than 1/2 of a skein of yarn. I'm doing something really really wrong.
I think Im missing something. Any suggestions? Am I destined to only knit scarves and hats forever????
