Hello All - I'm back. My eye is pretty much all better. I go back on Friday to get the final okay. Thanks for the well wishes. :)
This week we are doing Folded Fabric from our reversible knitting book. This pattern is pretty easy. It's basically a wide rib with a funky tuck.The pattern in the book calls for a repeat of 12, but now I wish I would have done a repeat of 10. This would have given me a wider border of garter stitch (5 sts as opposed to 2). But since I goofed up the heart, and tore that out and started again - and then I goofed this pattern up too because I didn't pay attention. I don't feel like ripping out again. I will write out what I did, and if all of this makes sense to you - feel free to adjust as you wish.
Note: You will need one double pointed needed for the tucks.
rows 1 - 8: knit 2, * knit 6, purl 6; repeat from * until the last two stitches. Knit 2.
row 9: Knit 2 for garter stitch border.
* Then, rotate the work toward you so that you see the "back" of the work and the needle is on the bottom. (see image)
With the double pointed needle, pick up stitches 6, 5, 4 from the corresponding box, 7 rows away from the needle. Knit 2 together, one stitch from the regular needle the other from the double pointed needle, 3 times. Knit 3 more, then purl 6. Repeat from * two more times. Knit 2.
Repeat rows 1 - 9 four times for our scarf.
