What do you mean by "work even in st st for 15 rounds"?
Hi everyone,

I am a beginner for knitting and I am starting to knit a hat.
I am currently switching to stockinette stitch which says:

"On first round inc 10 sts by working k9 kfb across round" 110 sts(which i already done it)

"Work even in st st for 15 rounds" which this part confuses me.

Does it mean I have to inc every 10 sts every round? Or just the first round and I can just have to knit 110 sts for the rest of the 14 rounds? What do you mean by work even?

Appreciate anyone could advise me.. I am stuck here!

Work even just means that you don't increase or decrease. 110 sts will stay 110 sts. If you're working in the round (and I think you are), that's just doing the knit st for 15 rounds, and you'll get stockinette st.

Work even always means don't do any more incs (or decreases if they were just before the 'work even' instructions).
