I think I have figured something out.... but I just want to clear it up before I start.
Here are the first 5 rows of the pattern stitch:
Row 1 (RS): p1, *p4, (k1 p1) 2 times, k5, (p1, k1) 2 times, p5; rep from *
Row 2 and other even numbered rows: k all k sts and p all p sts
Row 3: k1, *p5, (k1, p1) 2 times, k3, (p1, k1) 2 times, p5, k1; rep from *
Row 5: p1, *k1, p5, (k1, p1) 5 times, p4, k1, p1; rep from *
Now here is my question (which my be silly
I was doing a small swatch of the pattern and I think I realized something. I was trying to figure out what "k all k sts and p all p sts" meant. I am still a little confused. On Row 4, I did the opposite of row 3. Is that correct? And will it be that way throughout the whole pattern? Does this mean that on every even row, I will be doing the opposite of the row before?
Thanks in advance.
