so i decided i'd give knitting a second chance.. (in the past i've only ever done the most basic hats and scarves) and started making an urchin hat from knitty yesterday. so i got to the end of the first wedge and got a little confused by what the pattern meant in the 6th, 7th, and 8th row because it doesn't seem to follow with how it looks in the picture... so here's the part of the pattern..
"There are 5 wrapped sts on the wider side of the wedge; this edge will form part of the hat brim. There are 8[9, 10] wrapped sts on the narrower side of the wedge.
Row 6 [WS]: K to end.
Row 7 [RS]: K all sts.
Row 8 [WS]: Sl 1, k to end."
sooo i already knitted what i thought it meant so ill just tell you what i did and you can tell me if i'm wrong...
so after row #5 there are about 5 or 6 (i forget exactly how many now but i think its irrelevant at this point) sts that are in the row that are not wrapped sts, and then on one side of those there are 9 wrapped sts and 5 wrapped sts on the other. so in row 6 i knitted all the way to the end of the needle including the wrapped sts. then for row 7 knitted all the way to the other end including all wrapped sts and same for row 8, except for the slip stitch at the end.
if i were to only reading it, it makes sense to me, so i guess the only reason i've been questioning myself was because in the picture it doesn't seem like that edge of the wedge has a whole 2 rows of knitting...
a little help would be greatly appreciated thanks guys!
