Hellooo everyone.

I casted on for the Danica pattern.
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html

The first time I started, I found the scarf to be too ..skinny:p
And I decided I wanted a wider scarf (when it comes to scarves, in my opinion, bigger is better Cool).

So the pattern says to just cast on a multiple of 10.
Which I did. I casted on an extra 20 stitches.

I just started with section one, row 1-17 and repeated rows 2-16...

but.... now what?...
What do I do with the other 20 stitches on there?:\


I'm sorry  if the answer is super obvious, but I am really bad at figuring things like this out Cheesy

Just continue doing what you were doing - square by square, 10 st at a time!

Okay, thanks so much:D


So...then for section 2 I suppose I'd just continue with the ''centre square'' 2 more times before starting on the right edge triangle?

And in section 3 should I continue with the 2nd square?

Thank you Grin

I thought I'd just ask to be sure as usually I'll have an idea... but when I execute it, it goes horribly wrong. So it's best to check.

I have one last question Grin

If I'd want to make the squares smaller (say 5 stitches per square instead of 10), should I just follow the pattern until all five stitches are completed? (and where it says pick up 9 stitches, should I pick up 4?)

And would the first section look like this? ... sort of:

Using MC, CO 20 sts.
Row 1 [RS]: K2.
Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, p1.
Row 3 [RS]: K3.
Row 4 [WS]: Sl 1, p2.
Row 5 [RS]: K4.
Row 6 [WS]: Sl 1, p3.
Row 7 [RS]: K8
Repeat Rows 2-6 once more.


Next row: K5


I'm sorry for all the questions  Embarrassed

You would change the number of rows you do too...

Using MC, CO 20 sts.
Row 1 [RS]: K2.
Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, p1.
Row 3 [RS]: K3.
Row 4 [WS]: Sl 1, p2.
Row 5 [RS]: K4.
Row 6 [WS]: Sl 1, p3.
Row 7 [RS]: K5.
Row 8 - Sl 1, p4
Row 9 -  K7, which is the same as adding row 1, to start the next square, and repeat rows 2 to 9.

Thanks:)
I really really appreciate it.



oookay. I feel so bad asking all these questions, I'm just going to do it in one go:P
I'm stuck at section 2:\
As, I have a feeling I shouldn't just follow it until round 6 and then start with the center square..

And I can predict I'll be stuck at section 3 >_<

Gah. I shouldn't make posts when I'm sleepy >_<
Forgive me.

I meant to ask:

1. At section two, 'till what row should I follow the pattern? (e.g. Should I just halve the amount of rows or work until I've knitted 5 stitches off the needle)
2. Same question for section 3:)

And where it says pick up 10 stitches, should  I  pick up 5?
And where it says pick up 9 stitches, should I pick up 4?
