PATTERN TRANSLATION 2!
Hey All,
PATTERN FROM: http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/freeKn...eadedScarf.asp

Pattern:
* CO 22 sts
* Row 1 P10, PB, k1, PB, k1, P10.
* ** all following WS rows P10, k2, P10.
* Row 2 K6, DD, yo, k1, yo, p2, yo, k1, yo, SK2P, k6.
* Row 4 K4, DD, k1, [yo, k1] twice, p2, k1, [yo, k1] twice, SK2P, k4.
* Row 6 K2, DD, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, p2, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, SK2P, k2.
* Row 8 PB, DD, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, p2, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, PB, SK2P.
* ** Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length. Bind Off.

My Translation:
Cast On 22 stitches

Row 1: PurlX10, knitX2, PurlX10.

Row 2: KnitX6, Double Decrease, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, purlX2, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, SK2P, knitX6.

Row 4: KnitX4, Double Decrease, knitX1, [yarn over, knitX1]X2, purlX2, knitX1, [yarn over, knitX1]X2, SK2P, knitX4.

Row 6: KnitX2, Double Decrease, knitX2, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, knitX2, purlX2, knitX2, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, knitX2, SK2P, knitX2.

Row 8: Double Decrease, knitX3, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, knitX3, purlX2, knitX3, yarn over, knitX1, yarn over, knitX3, SK2P.

Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length. Bind Off.

ADAPTIONS/NOTES OF PATTERN:
I have removed the 'place bead' as I will put no beads on this pattern.
Yarn over =wrap wool around needle
Double Decrease = transfer 2 stitches directly on other needle, <k1>, put the 2 slipped stitches over the <k1,k st-2 sts dec>.
SK2P= slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the one that has knitted 2 together.

STITCH TOTAL (R=row):
R1:22
R2:23
R4:23
R6:23
R8:23

Just to check my understanding, a double decrease =2 stitches, SK2P=1 stitch.

QUESTIONS/QUERIES
On this pattern, I have noticed a couple of things that have confused me. They have been noted by the <...> as brackets. I know k1 =knit one, but in a decrease, do you knit the next stitch on? Can someone describe a double decrease in english and in VERY simple terms please?
Also, what has happened to row 3, 5 and 7?

I'm pasting from the pattern:
  • CO 22 sts
  • Row 1 P10, PB, k1, PB, k1, P10.
  • ** all following WS rows P10, k2, P10.
  • Row 2 K6, DD, yo, k1, yo, p2, yo, k1, yo, SK2P, k6.
  • Row 4 K4, DD, k1, [yo, k1] twice, p2, k1, [yo, k1] twice, SK2P, k4.
  • Row 6 K2, DD, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, p2, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, SK2P, k2.
  • Row 8 PB, DD, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, p2, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, PB, SK2P.
  • ** Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length. Bind Off.
The line I put in red shows you what to do with rows 3, 5, 7 etc.

The double decrease (DD) takes 3 stitches and makes them into 1 stitch, just as the SK2P does. They're just done a bit differently in order to change the way the completed stitch leans. For both decreases, you need to slip the stitches *knitwise*, in other words, put your right needle into the stitch as if to knit it, but don't knit it, just slide it off the left needle. This changes the orientation of the stitch- turns it around on the needle.

In the double decrease, you'll slip 2 stitches *together* knitwise, which will both change the orientation of the stitches and change the order- the left one will now be on the right. Then you'll knit the next stitch on your left needle, then once it is on your right needle, you'll pass the 2 slipped stitches over it and off the right needle- turning 3 stitches into 1.

Did that answer all your questions?

Abbily -yes! I think that it now makes sense. I think that you have put it a lot more sensibly than I thought. Thankyou so much!!!

Hey All,
Abbily - An update on my progress with the lace pattern, it is working and looks quite good on my small metal needles (first bought set, secondhand from a charity shop, and bent as I was working on my first project -they are almost circular needles now!!!).

Anyway, my work -looks good on the tight needles, am hoping to transfer/knit into my brittany wooden needles (bigger size) to see how it is. I will hopefully put attachments on here so that you can see any problems before I use the yellow (?baby/lightweight) version for the full scarf.

(Reason for the yellow wool: it was lying around in my carrier bag of wool for many years. I used to make friendship bracelets before I got into knitting. Yellow as a colour also doesnt suit me, so I cant make anything for myself. A pale yellow scarf would be an awesome present for someone else. Hence the reason for attempting/doing a pretty lace style pattern). Hopefully the yellow wool will provide a better definition to the lace than the thicker purple test wool.

Hey All,
Hehe! Abbily -I'm still on the purple swatch/test thing. But when I have finished it I should take pics and put it up. Hehe!

On a completely separate topic, but it just fits....
I have made a simple scarf out of the most softest, thickest and most gorgeous colour blue wool. Its extra wide and is so great. (Thick wooden needles that look like they are about to start a fire hehe! -Yet another Brittany brand!) It is about 3 balls of 100g wool. I am thinking of putting an extra ball of wool on it as it seems too small length wise. Its like a scarf/shawl combi. So lovely.
Can you frog just the cast off row?

Hey All,
I have noticed that the ends of the scarf create a sort of shale effect. It looks good and I really like it. But -is it meant to do that? Or have I just made it look really nice through sheer begginers luck/fluke?

Absolutely! Just do it all backwards, carefully picking up all the stitches as you go along. You might want to frog back one more row, just to make sure you have enough tail for joining the new yarn. Don't worry too much about the orientation of the stitches as you're picking them up, just make sure to get them all on the needle. Then once you're knitting them, make sure they are oriented correctly before you knit each stitch- if you don't, the world will not end, but you may see a tiny twist in the stitches.

Feather and fan does have a nice scalloped edge, it's just the nature of the pattern.
