thank you! i think i got it now....but wait, just to clarify.........
after i kn 1, sl1, kn 1 then psso, do i keep sl1 and kn 1 then psso? or do i keep doing the three kn 1 sl 1 kn1 with psso? sorry if im complicating things! i really am! i just am kind of confused and have had to frog the darn thing 5 times.

Think of it this way: you are doing a sl1, k1, psso that is bracketed or framed by a k1 on either end. So - you do the k1, forget about it because it is no longer part of the pattern in the row, then do the sl1,k1,psso until you get to the last stitch, which is the other end of the bracket or frame and k1. This way you have a multiple of 2 stitches. The pattern stitch is on two stitches - but on the front side the pattern is framed by the k1 on either end. The back is straight 2 2 2 2 ....

You've chosen a challenge for your first venture out of garter stitch, but I'm SURE you can do it! Oh - for future reference, if you see an instruction followed by an asterisk (*), it means that the repeat only includes things INSIDE the asterisk. So in this case, since the first k1 is not in the asterisk, it isn't repeated.

And - just think of each frog as another milestone on your way to expertise!


thanks for the encouraging words!

You do the first knit 1 every time you do Row 1, just don't use it on the rest of the row. You have an even number of sts, there's a k1 at the beginning, sl 1, k1 uses 2 at a time, then you end with k1.

Hmmm, in the brownish part, it looks like you did something wrong. It's a little hard to explain but, when you do your sts they're in pairs, but you use a stitch from each pair to make the next pair.

At the end of the 1st row, the sts on your needles should be grouped together like this:

x xx xx xx xx x

When you do the 2nd row, you purl the end st with the first one from the next pair, and so forth across, ending up using the 2nd st from the last pair with the single end st.
   ^  ^
XX XX X
   
So when you're done with that row, the groups look like this:

xx xx xx xx xx

Then on the next row, you knit 1 in the first st of the 1st pair, slip the 2nd one and knit the 1st st of the 2nd pair. So you end up with
x xx xx xx x again.

It looks like on some rows you made both sts of a pair into a pair instead of 1 st from the 1st pair and the next st from the 2nd pair.
