I am having a world of trouble trying to figure out this one complicated stitch. The project is Robin Melanson's "Filigree" fingerless gloves, as featured on the cover of the book I'm working from: Knitting New Mittens and Gloves
Anyways, the whole pattern consists of four rows of knitting in the round, the second row involves this crazy technique where you are supposed to "k4tog, p4tog into these 4 sts" and when you are done the row, you should have half the original sts left.
I've tried knitting through the front, then the back, or knitting then slipping them off and purling, but everything I've tried makes a gigantic mess of things and sure as heck doesn't look like the picture :/
Here's another pic of someone's project who successfully managed to figure out what was going on :p
Successful creation here
I admit I'm new to knitting and especially to lace patterns, but the gloves look so darn pretty and except for this one stitch I've got all the other techniques down pat.
Anyways, thanks for any help in advance, and I promise once I get better at this stuff I'll be all over this site helping others out too!
