Some of you know me as the guy with the boat bumper.. lol.. I am just trying out this so I learn how to read the pattern.. so question.. I am trying this line...
Baby afghan measures approximately 35" by 42"
* Sport weight acrylic yarn, 15 oz. Off White
* Size 5 knitting needles
* Size 6 knitting needles
Or size to obtain gauge.
Gauge: 25 stitches = 4 1/4", 14 rows of shell panel repeat = 2"
Shell Panel (make 7)
With larger needles, cast on 25 stitches.
Row 1 (right sides): Knit (k) 3, purl (p) 4, k1, p4, k1, p4, k1, p4, k3.
Row 2 and all even rows: Knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches as they face you.
*what does (right sides) mean? i googled and couldn't come up with an answer that made sense.
*note: i am just testing this out.. giving it a try.. So, i have done line 1 as instructed. but here is the kicker for me.. now if i look at all my ribs (or stitches) it looks like i have extra bumps or stitches. it seems like it is on the transitions from the k to the p.. does this make sense? Where do I follow line two? See what I mean? Hope I don't seem like a nagging question. Thanks sooo much.
