Gretchen, if you don't mind please call me on my cell-972 955 9857. I'm struggling and would like to talk to you asap! thank you honey
The photo appears to have many more stitches on needle; with only 30 stiches cast on, how do you get it as wide as photo shows?
Gretchen, I'm lost, please help me understand how to "Knit rows 1 - 4 until you have 24 stitches between your two markers. Now we'll continue without any increases, or knitting just rows 1 & 2, until the piece measures roughly 15" inches along top edge, or until you're about 9 inches from your desired finished length (obviously, if you decide to make this a bunch longer, you'll more yarn). Now, we'll begin some decreases in the stockinette portion of this item, which go as follows:
Hi Debby! I'm not sure what went wrong, but I only just saw your messages. I apologize. And to answer your question, in Row 3 of those first four rows, you're including a make 1 left increase, so you should gain one additional stitch for each four rows knit. Like I said, I'm very sorry for taking so long to reply. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this doesn't clear things up for you or if you have any further questions. I should be prompt in my reply!
