i work at a sewing store and a nice lady brought me in this pattern for double diamond edging. can somebody please explain to me what to do? i can knit and i can pearl. i know how to knit two together and pearl two together. i am not familiar with some more 'advanced' things. well here is the pattern:
worked lengthwise over 9 sts.
note: sts should only be counted after the 1st of 12th rows.
1st and every alt row (right side): knit
2nd row: k3, k2tog, yf, k2tog, (yf,k1] twice
4th row: K2, (k2tog, yf) twice, k3, yf, k1
6th row: K1, (k2tog, yf) twice, k5, yf, k1
8th row: K3, (yf, k2tog) twice, k1, k2tog, yf, k2tog
10th row: k4, yf, k2tog, yf, k3tog, yf, k2tog
12th row: K5, yf, k3tog, yf, k2tog
Rep these 12 rows.
I have no idea what 'yf' means or what worked lengthwise over nine stitches is.
