Thanks for all the advice so far it's really helped!!
Two new questions though.....this is what the pattern says..
"working in st-st throughout, and beg with a k row, work 2 rows
next row: inc one st into first 2 sts, k (3), inc one st into next 4 sts, k to last 2 sts, inc one st into last 2 sts.
next row: p. rep last 2 rows, with number of sts in brackets 4 more each time, until you have 46 sts total. Work 39 rows; (48 rows total)"
I understand I have to knit until I have 46 stitches on my needle but then what does work 39 rows mean? Do I have to work another 39 rows? And if so are they knit or purl???
And secondly what does...
k2 tog, k4 mean?
