k2tog is Knit together.

Atsuko,  this is the scarf I learned to do cables on. It's not hard at all after a few tries. If you want to try it and have any questions ask me!

i can't crochet either, and i love the soft open look crochet can have.  knitting was easy for me to get, because i do it on a loom.  it's MUCH easier, and you can make anything that needles can create!  i just learned how to do a mock crochet stitch, and have already made a hat, scarf, and facecloth with it, lol.  it's amazing how much it really does look like crochet!

Atsuko - I can understand you not wanting to try a new pattern for a swap. I am speaking from memory but I think there is a fake cable scarf in one of the stitch n bitch books - it looks like cable but doessn't need the cable stitches.

 I am sure you'll something lovely with the stitches you know. I  have a scarf that gets a lot of attention when  I wear it. Not because of my amazing knitting skill - it's just garter stitch. But because the wool is so eye-catching, wooly bright green with bobbles in pink, blue and orange. Nicer than it sounds.



BTW I have some of your lego pendants from a SSS and i wear one all the time - it always get comments too.

I found an easy to read and (even more important) easy to follow knitting book that made knitting alot easier to understand...

Teach Yourself Visually: Knitting 
ISBN: 0-7645-9640-3

It kind of has that "dummies/idiots guide" kind of feel but its really simplified and gets progressively more difficult as you master certain stitches.  The patterns are a bit dull, but for learning new stitches it really helped me "understand" knitting.

I came today to ask you knitters out there for some easy yet impressive patterns that can be done with p, k, inc, dec, k2tog stitches?  So far I've done the seed pattern for 1 scarf and a k/p rib, but I need 1 more.  Any help would be appreciated.  TIA!!
This is the one row scarf pattern from the Yarn Harlot's blog, I really like the look of it:

Yarn: About 12 wraps per inch, or roughly a worsted weight.
Needles: 5mm
Gauge: I got 20 stitches to 10cm in pattern.
Size: Mine is about 13cm (5 inches) wide, and about 135cm (53 inches) long. That's pretty little, but it's enough to go round my neck, knot in the front and tuck into my coat. If I had more yarn I would have gone on for another 15-20cms (6-8 inches).

Start: Cast on 26 stitches (to make it wider or narrower add or remove stitches in groups of 4 )

Row 1: *knit 2, knit into the back of the next stitch, purl 1. Repeat from * till there are 2 stitches left. Knit 2.

Repeat that one row every row until you can stand it no longer, your scarf is long enough or you run out of yarn, whatever comes first.
Cast off.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.
