THIS PATTERN is the one in question. (I know there is a name for the stitch... but I can not remember it right now  Embarrassed  ) Ok so I don't get this

Row 1: K1, *sl 1, K1, psso but before dropping the slipped stitch from the left needle, knit into the back of it* repeat until there is one stitch left, K1

I slip one, I knit one, I slip the 1st stitch over and put it back on the left needle, then knit into the back of it... however then I get stuck.  If I simply drop it off... well that is a live stitch and will unravel.  What do I do with this?? I know it is just something simple that isn't "clicking" but I can not figure it out! HELP!!

The stitch that is slipped shouldn't unravel since you first pass it over the stitch that you have just knit and then knit through it. That slipped stitch will have two stitches coming through it.

Does that help?

Think of it like a SSK.  You know how you put your left needle into the two stitches to be knit together after they've been slipped onto the right needle?  It's like that.  You're putting your left needle into the slipped stitch in preparation for passing it over the other stitch, but before you do that, knit it.

OK, so will I half my stitches on the knit row?  Or are there still 30 at the end?

Hey All...Hope that the scarf is going well!  For anyone else considering making it, I've found this herringbone pattern to be FAR easier than the one on the My So Called Scarf site!  (Cut and paste the link if clicking doesn't work...I have a heck of a time linking from Craftster...sorry!)  Oh, and just FYI, it's a PDF, but if you don't have print capabilities, you won't even need a pattern once you get it figured out.

Woohoo! Smiley Please post a photo when finished.

Congrats on the pregnancy. I totally sympathize--been there three times so far and those particular side effects don't seem to go away (youngest is 3.4 yo)!
