Okay so i am making a hooded scarf for my "old lady" for Christmas, but I have ran into a pattern snag.
I need help reading this pattern so that I know what to do next. The scarf is easy, the hood I am having a problem with. I will type out the instructions and maybe someone can tell me what I am not getting here.
I already cast on my 80 stitches. I completed the following two rows:
1. Sl 1, work Row 8 of Hood Pattern A, P20, pm, P16, pm,P20, work Row 8 of Hood Pattern B, P1.
2. (RS) Sl 1, work Row 1 of Hood Pattern A, K20, sl m, M1R, knit to next m, M1L, sl m, K20, work Row 1 of Hood Pattern b, p1.
Now This is where I am confused. I will give the next three sets of instructions along with Both A and B Hood Patterns. (please bear with me)
"Continue in pattern and work increases as established every 4th row 7 more times, ending with Hood Pattern Row 8. - 96 sts" ( I don't understand what they want. I know that I know have 82 sts on my needle and 7 more times every 4th row will give me 96 sts, but what pattern do I follow and how.)
"Continue in pattern, work Rows 1 to 8 of Hood Pattern twice more, then work Rows 1 to 4 of Hood Pattern again and at the same time work increases every RS row 10 times - 116 sts"
Work even through Row 8 of Hood Pattern, then work even Rows 1 - 8 of Hood Pattern again."
There are two Hood Patterns A and B. Which one are they talking about. I am not seeing something or I am ignorant to the fact of how to follow this pattern.
Hood pattern A:
1. K9, P1, K1 tbl
2. P9, K1, P1 tbl
3. C6B, K3, P1, K1 tbl
4. P9,K1, P1 tbl
5. K9, P1, K1 tbl
6. P9, K1, P1 tbl
7. K3, C6F, P1, K1 tbl
8. P9, K1, P1 tbl
Hood Pattern B:
1. K1 tbl, P1, K9
2. P1 tbl, K1, P9
3. K1 tbl, P1, C6B, K3
4. P1 tbl, K1, P9
5. K1 tbl, P1, K9
6. P1 tbl, K1, P9
7. K1 tbl, P1, K3, C6F
8. P1 tbl, K1, P9
Again I have no issue with stitches just how this pattern is supposed to be worked.
