The first color rows--the border--are 5 rows of knit--garter stitch.

When you look at a chart, basically what you're seeing is what the pattern will look like on the front. If the boxes are empty, a knit appears on the front. If there is a dot, a purl appears on the front. So striped empty/dot rows are garter, all empty rows are stockinette.

well i don't think i understand because the colors at the top of the chart say knit RS and purl WS unless there is a dot then it says to purl the RS or am i just reading that wrong?

that's why i think i am suppose to be doing knit purl purl in the first section after the checker board (in the yellow part not the rust part) otherwise the pattern doesn't match the picture. any other way i figure it, it would bring about stockinette......which would make the rows with the dots in that section redundant.

*sigh* i have a feeling at some point i am just gonna start making it up!

I'm sorry, I was thinking that the first color was the border--I feel like I have to rush when I'm here at work.


All the way across, you knit the first row. Then in the second row, on the darker side, you have the pattern of k3, p3, as they appear on the front, so on the back you would p3, k3.

On the lighter side the first two rows are in st st, so knit the first row, purl the second row, and purl the third row.
