Jaywalker ?
I want to swatch for some Jaywalkers, and I have a question about the zig-zag pattern. What is "dd"? And just to make sure, "k-f/b" is knit into the front and back of the st, right?

TIA!

DD is double decrease and it may be slip 1, k2tog, psso; sl 2, k1, psso, or k3tog. And yes kfb is knitting into the front and back of the same stitch for an increase.

Thanks! Now I get to try all three and decide which one I like best.

(You know, I figured it had to be double something. That makes sense. )

the DD is actually given in the glossary of stitches in the pattern, on the bottom left of the first page i think.
it is a double increase. For this pattern they give slip 2 knit one pass slipped stitches over. IT is best to have the right decrease as this pattern reliese on paired decreases and increases to give the direction to the zig-zags

I am doing these right now. At first I had the DD wrong... You have to slip both stitches knitwise, TOGETHER, and then K1, PSSO. I was slipping them separately, and the decreases were leaning over rather than straight, which is how they are supposed to look.

There is a video of the kfb, but I never found one of the dd.

Oh goodness. I must have looked that pattern over a dozen times, and it was right there staring me in the face! Wow. (Okay, I'm using the excuse that I was sick. I'm much better now.)

Thanks all!
