Ok, I've been knitting for almost 2 years and the only things I have managed to knit are scarves. I found a pattern on the ball of yarn and wanted to try it out but I have no idea what it means when its talking about gauge or talking about knit 2 or a lot of the words on there. Sooo I was wondering if anyone could help, or am I over my head. Its hard for me to check out nearby classes because I am in Germany and in the military so I don't have many options. Help please!
