Tiger eyes scarf-Help
Has anyone made this, I cast on tonight and I'm on row 8 of the chart. I've noticed that in the middle of the row (13 symbols along not counting the blanked out squares) there is a knit stitch but there is a ssk two stitches along, everywhere else on the chart where there is a k2tog there is a SSK "opposite it" but not here, is this right???

If I'm understanding what you're asking, you're talking about the middle of row 8, where there's 3 knit sts, YO , ssk, and then 2 knit sts. There's no mirroring decrease to that ssk because the ssk is there to compensate for the addition of a stitch with the YO, to keep the stitch count the constant. That yo, SSK is in the middle of the row, so there's nothing to mirror.

The chart is correct. I made this a few years ago (you will love it - it is gorgeous) and wondered the same thing. It has to be that way for the "eyes" to be centered. Trust the pattern - it is right.

Thanks, I decided to chance it anyway and I think the pattern splits at that point for the little diamondy thing above it (I'm not very good at explaining it) so it it's not entirely symmetrical (which threw me) but it's not noticeable when knitted up. I did two repeats last night but I was too tired to concentrate and made a few mistakes and had to keep tinking back so I went to bed!
Anyhow my camera is rubbish, but this is what it looks like so far.

Very nice. I also knitted it some time ago, or rather, I started knitting it, unfortunately my yarn was not a good choice, there are knots in every skein, so I abandoned it,...
I also wondered about that strange thing in the pattern, but as some people told me, I trusted the pattern, and it turned out right (I did two repeats)

So keep up the good effort. Nowadays I'm almost always changing patterns to suit my own taste :D

The DESIGN is symetrical, but the KNITTING PATTERN is not. Because if you have an odd number of YO's, you cannot pair every one.

agh right, that makes sense, It's been ages since I tried anything too fiddly and the recent lace project I did was symmetrical so I thought it was odd in comparison

I really love that pattern, but I have one question. On the chart the shaded squares mean "no stitch". What do you do for those stitches? I'm thinking about making that, but want to see if I understand the chart before I start. Thanks.

I was worried about that too, but trust the pattern. Just do as it says, and jump the no stitch stitches, there are no stitches. There are more decreases than increases, so that you end up with fewer stitches, but to keep the chart symmetrical, there are placeholders.

It goes from 25 stitches up up 39 and gradually back down to 25 again by YOs and decreases
