Where would I find an appropriate tutorial on row 7 of the Twilight Lace Shawl? Specifically, “k1, yo, k1, ssk, k2tog, k1, yo.”
Thank you for your help.
I’m twenty rows into creating this sweater shawl and I’m confused by the tighter stockinette stitches in the middle of the lace stitches and garter stitches. Not to mention I am a tight knitter and not sure if it will help any other people creating this, but I had to edit the row eight-row to have e-wrap stitches on the stitches that are moved so stitches, pegs two and three as well as pegs six and seven of reach repeat are e-wrap knits so that I have more yarn to help me move those stitches to the other pegs. It still looks great and allows the more open lace effect instead of being so tight, all other knit pegs are standard u-wrap knits.
