How does a gal "knit 0" (knit zero?) lace pattern
Hi all ; )

I want to start this simple lace pattern for a skirt:

Luna

This is what it reads on the pattern page:

The pattern is also easy to memorize; for each set of 8 rnds, the number of k stitches at the beginning and end of each 10 st rep varies from 0 to 3, with a constant 7 st rep (shown in boldface) in between.

Rnd 1: *K3, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1, yf, k0*
Rnd 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16: *K*
Rnd 3: *K2, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1, yf, k1*
Rnd 5: *K1, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1, yf, k2*
Rnd 7: *K0, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k3, yf, k1, yf, k3*

Rnd 9: *K0, yf, k1, yf, k3, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k3*
Rnd 11: *K1, yf, k1, yf, k3, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k2*
Rnd 13: *K2, yf, k1, yf, k3, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k1*
Rnd 15: *K3, yf, k1, yf, k3, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k0*
What does knit zero mean/refer to? I noticed on other posts it says, "just don't knit those." SO waddaya do with 'em?

what do you do with knit zero stitches?

Any and all help is appreciated!
Thanks,
Tracy

You don't knit them. They don't exist If it was a chart, there would be a black square there to keep the chart even. Just ignore the k0.

Are you making that skirt? Please post pictures if you do. It's gorgeous!

Oh... thanks.... huh?

So why does a pattern writer/designer put "knit 0" in the pattern in the first place? Does it represent something? Why not just leave it out all together if the stitch doesn't exist?

more stupid questions will probably follow... I'll get it soon.

Tracy : )

My only thought is that it was copied from a chart.
