Another new knitting stitch - WARNING

I have taken a break from sewing to knit a short sleeved cardigan for DGD. The stitch I needed to learn was pfb, purl through front and back of the same stitch.

Thank goodness for the internet. The first video didn’t make it clear enough but the second one did. I am knitting the cardigan all in one from the neck down and this particular stitch is used to increase on every other row to go from 54 to 150 stitches.

The entire thing is created in 63 rows. I should be using 4mm needles but have opted to use 4.5mm instead. I was worried it might be too small, so this will either be okay or way to big.

Watch this space!

Pattern is from here: https://mariannaslazydaisydays.blogspot.com/2019/02/evie-baby-or-baby-doll-all-in-one-tops.html

WARNING - for the 0-3 month pattern there is an error.

Line 22 should read k4, (k9, p2) 11 times, k13.

    1. The download for the smaller ones are free, larger ones need paying for.
