This is a call for help from a new, optimisitic, self-taught knitter who may be in over her head for a first ever FO. I am dying
to start the pixie hat in Knit Wit, in the sleek option, and I need some help with the beginning of the pattern.
CO X stitches for my melon size - got it.
Work even - got it - seed stitch - yup, got that - and this is where I get lost...
...until 1" from beg, ending, with RS (right sides - got it) facing. Huh? Does that mean to knit until I am an inch into the CO stitches, then seed stitch until I am an inch from the end, and then I knit to the end? Where does the RS come in there? Is that the RS of the CO stitches? Doh! Help! The rest of the pattern is perfectly clear to me, but I'm stuck at the starting gate.
I know that this is basic stuff, and that I really need to find a local SnB to attend for help, but I am really itching to start on this at home. Take pity on me!
Ookpik - you out there? I love this hat and can't wait to make one!
