Deco Elongated pattern Scarf on webpage
Wow am I having a hard time following a basic pattern. I seen this pattern and liked it for starting to learn k P.....I dont seem to establish a P so well.. but I wanted to adapt the pattern to have k2 along the edge so I got a frame around the scarf. I really didnt follow the pattern, but just wanted to get this block effect.
So I took out all 20 something rows cause it was not working and decided to follow this pattern.... but I dont understand it says to
odd rows: k3, k5, p5, k5, k3
even rows: k3, p5, k5, p5, k3
Being new... I just dont understand why I am not knitting 8 for the knit 3 and then knit 5? What and I missing?
