I am new here and new to knitting. After several failed attempts to learn knitting from a book, I was referred here by experienced knitters and I finally got it by watching the great videos on this site.
Now for my question:
I am halfway through my first project, a scarf, in this stitch:
Looking ahead to my next project, I was thinking about doing something in this stitch:
But on the link under King Charles Brocade stitch, where it provides a scarf pattern, it says:
Note: Knit the first and last 3 sts of every row.
CO 31 sts.
Does this mean that I actually cast on 37 stitches, allowing for the 3 on the beginning and end of the row to be knitted, or do I ignore the first 3 stitches of the actual 31 to be done and knit them instead?
Thanks in advance!
