Cont in this way working 1 st less before turning on every row until the row Sl 1, K7, turn has been worked
Ok you knit 29 stitches and you literally turn your work as if you were at the end of a row.
that means you have 29 stitches on your left needle and 2 on your right. ignore those 2 stitches for now (they get dealt with later)
When knitting always work from left needle to right needle unless otherwise told to.
so the next row which says sl 1p, meens you slip 1 stitch from left needle to right needle inserting your needle purlways. then you knit 26 and turn your work, ignoring any unworked stitches.
keep going in this fashion (knitting 1 less st each time) until you work a row that is sl1, k7, turn.
the key points here are:
- make sure you are working from your left needle to your right needle
- slip stitches purlwise (from left to right)
- ignore any unworked stitches. just don't worry abou them.
But yay a knitted cow! sounds fun, i love toy cows, post a pic when you are finished, i would love to see!
