figuring out a pattern
I'm stuck on a basic shell. Front of shell reads- With right (knit) side of work facing you, slip the front sts on to larger needle. Place a safety pin marker as needed. Which I did)
Rejoin yarn to right edge of left front, k1,ssk, k to within 3 sts of end of row, k2 tog, k row. This is the front - back in completed.
What exactly does that mean?
I knitted a babies hat from Cottage Industry, the pattern is sweetpea baby set, but I need to knit something called 'monk's cord' which attaches/sewn to the corners of the hat. My question is What is Monk's Cord/how is this knitted?
