BUT, the scarf is still going and I use both English (throwing) and Continental knitting style.
Knit 5 rows
K5, *yo, K2tog*x6, K5 repeat row until fed up with "like lace" then
K5, P12, K5 (I find that purling first is a better method then knitting this row)
Knit one row, then *K5, P12, K5* one row (aka stockinette stitch window) until a nice "band" forms (about 6-8 rows ending with a Knit row)
Then do the "like lace" until fed up again and make a stockinette stitch band ect until finished.
I used 22 stitches, you can use ANY number of even stitches and ANY number of buffer stitches so long as their combination is an EVEN number, I used 5 (or 10 in total) because I wanted the "like lace" stitch to look like a peek-a-boo window.
Pictures will be coming soon...
LOOK AWAY if you are of the squeamish type or scroll down if you want to see three cat bites:
|Bite 3: The two punctures on the other side that lay exactly in line|
where my knitting needle lays for my Continental Style.
In case you're wondering that is a Wii board as background.
