Ok, so I guess I'm changing my first Knitting project to This Teddy Bear Baby Blanket.
CO 104 sts loosely.
Work 3 rows Seed Stitch:
Row 1: *k1, p1; rep from *
Row 2: sl 1, *k1, p1; rep from *, end k1
Row 3: sl 1, * p1, k1; rep from *, end p1
I understand * is for repeat, so when I go back to do these Rows again, I drop the stitches not between the * ? (I highlighted them in blue)
Technically, you slip the first stich, then work K1, P1 until the last stitch and that stitch is a Knit.
Same for row3- you slip the first stich, then work in P1, K1 pattern and the very last stich is a Purl.
sl 1 means slip one. Usually you slip the stitch purlwise [you insert the needle as if you are purling].
Row 2, you will slip the first stitch purlwise, then knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch to the last stitch. The last stitch will be a knit stitch.
Row 2, slip the first stitch purlwise, then purl 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch to the last stitch. Purl the last stitch.
Hope this helps.
This is a great pattern and I made a smaller one (four bears -- two by two) as a "nap blankie" years ago. It is adorable and it will make you comfortable reading the chart! In this pattern there are no increases or decreases so all the rows will always be 104 stitches long. FYI I did find it helpful. to put markers betweent he blocks and between the edge and the beginning of the bear chart part.
Keep us posted, and don't forget the Impressionist Afghan in the future -- I will knit it along with you if you want!
I am holding on this one since you helped me out so much on the Impressionist Afhgan!!
Thank you all for you're help. After I finish the Afghan, I be coming back to this one!
