So I am celebrating my first week of summer vacation plaing catch up on some of the knitting I have cast aside to write finals, prep students, grade finals, write progress reports, and end the school year. I am knitting this Irish sampler scarf that has a lot of tricky techniques in it that I have never used in my 18 months of knitting. (Yes, I am still pretty new to the craft).
Here is my dilemma/question:
One of the patterns has me k1,p1,k1,p1,k1 all into one stitch. I have done this before and this has created four extra stitches that I have passed over to create a bobble of sorts. This particular pattern has no mention of passing the extra stitches over. Is there a way to do the multiple stitches into one without increasing the total number of stitches on the needle? or should I just assume that I am to pass them over?
