Hi all! I am making a throw and am using a pattern through Lion Brand Yarns. I am not sure I understanding the directions in Row 1 of Pattern 1. here it is verbatim: Row 1 (RS) k1,*yo, k6 (slip 2 tog as if to knit, k1 p2sso), k6, yo, k1
rep from * accross.
why are some of the instructions in parenthesis? and how do you pass two slip stiches over?
i am going to a knitting group on thursday but would like to do some tonight!@
any help would be greatly appreciated.
So in the parenthesis i slip two stitches together as if to knit then i place the right needle back over and knit a new stitch? is this the p2sso? or do i pass two stitches over again?
i am taking this way too literally arent I?
thank you i dont feel so alone!!!
It all sounds really complicated until you do it. Like I've been scared of the ssk for a while now, and yesterday I finally made myself try it, and it was all so very easy! Just do what the pattern says. Trust it. It'll all come out ok.
