Yours look amazing, OP! Very beautiful. The comstume is excellent.
I have a question for anyone who has successfully completed this pattern.
I know how to wrap and turn (thanks, www.knittinghelp.com
), but most instructions begin with stitches still on your left needle. I have none. I have the right amount of stitches according to the pattern, and I followed it exactly.
For Row 2: Inc 1 (i.e. K1 then knit into back of the same stitch), *P2, K2* 8 times, P2, W&T.
So I did just that, and when I purl those last 2, the row is done! How do I do a W&T with no stitch there? Do I just wrap the last purl stitch?
Is that confusing?
Thanks so much, crafters!
If you increase one stitch knitwise at the beginning you will have two knit stitches and then continue with the *p2, K2*.
and since you started with 36st, that increase in the second row will give you 37st. If you continue with the p2, k2 that shouldnt finish with a odd number. the last purl stitch in the sequence should leave you with an extra stitch. If you counted all your stitches I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe something happened with your increase. nevertheless when you are finished that row it should just look like *k2, p2* 9 times with one extra.
I hope that helps
