Sorry to be a bother, but the rows 1-4 would be just for one color? And then after follow 1-4 in a different color? (Does this even make sense??) Thanks in advance if someone can help me.  Embarrassed

I just glanced at the stitch pattern, but I think it's two rows per color...if you're unsure, work a little swatch of it to see when you need to change colors.

And huzzah for it being a knit stitch.  I can't get my brain and hands around crochet just yet, so this means I can do it myself and not end up begging my Mum to make me a scarf Cheesy

okay, question about the daisy stitch:  i was reading the pattern & the stitches just arent adding up to me.  if i'm reading it right, youll end up with half as many stiches on row 2 as you started with on row 1.  this isnt right.  would somebody please hold my hand and help me understand it?

DAISY STITCH
Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches, plus one.
Row 1 (right side):  Knit.
Row 2:  K1, *P3tog, yo, P3tog again (the same three stitches as before), K1, repeat from *.
Row 3:  Knit.
Row 4:  K1, P1, K1, *P3tog, yo, P3tog again (the same three stitches as before), K1, repeat from *.
Repeat Rows 1 - 4.

When you purl 3 together, that's one stitch. Then you do a yarnover which makes another stitch. And then you purl through those same 3 stitches again so that's a third stitch. So basically, by purling the same three stitches together, you're keeping the same number of stitches in row two. Ok, I don't think I explained that very well but I hope it helps.

Ahh i get it, squeaky-kleen... the k1, the top of the p3tog, and the yo make up the new 3 stitches that you p3tog "again", am i right?

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Pink - not quite but almost  Smiley

The purl 3 together puts one loop on the needle, then the yarn over puts the second loop on the needle, then you purl the same three together again and that puts the 3rd loop on the needle. Those three "items" make up for the purl three together.

The K1 just covers the one stitch you are knitting

Can anyone do a picture tutorial or video of this for knitting simpletons like me who cannot figure out how on earth to do it but love the scarf? Thank you SO much in advance to anyone who finds the time to do this. I'm much more visual, reading stuff doesn't help me learn how to do it.  Tongue

The instructions are a little vague...I wish I had the set-up to do a visual tutorial, but I don't.  If only you could send knowledge straight into other peoples' brains!

You purl three stitches together but leave them on the left needle, then you do a yarnover, then you purl through the same three stitches again and pull them off the left needle...it's a simple thing to do but a little awkward to convey without getting really wordy.
