Fresh Bite Scarflet

  1. Not sure is you are aware but row 7 does not add up to 30 stitches – it adds up to 31. To make the pattern work I elimiated th K1 after the last K7.

    K1, P1, K7, P3, K6, P3, K7, P1, K1

  2. so since you’re doing the first 4 rows seed stitch.. row 1, 3 are *K1,P1* and row 2,4 are *P1, K1* (knit the purls, purl the knits) so you’re not doing seed stitch for the sides? or else it would be ending in K1, P1 at the end of row one instead of P1, K1.
    and you still haven’t changed row 7..
    also is the 3rd “next row” as written or is it supposed to be “K1, YO, K2tog, (P1, K1) 3 times, K1, YO, K2tog, (K1, P1) 3 times, K1, YO, K2tog, (P1, K1) 3 times, K1, YO, K2tog”?

    • No the edges are not seed st. Row 7 was changed on the pdf form of the pattern and I thought I had updated the pattern here as well- I will have to check that. It has been updated now.

      • on the pattern rows you’re doing the edge as K, P, K…..K, P, K and you repeat that for the beginning and end of every row (knitting the purls, purling the knits) so you are getting a seed stitch edge. but since you’re not ending the first row of begin pattern with a P,K,P that edge on the first row will be the only one that is technically wrong.. which isn’t a big deal cuz you won’t see it since it’s tucked under at the end. but since i’m a perfectionist :P.. i’m doing odd rows beginning and ending with K,P,K…..P,K,P and even rows beginning and ending with P,K,P……K,P,K.

        and i noticed row 7 and “next row” 3 were already changed on the pdf. thanks so much for the pattern!!!
