Dear Alexia, Yes it's a bobble. The explanation is right above the square with the pattern: bobble: K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1 in the same st (= 5 sts). Work 4 rows stockinette st on these 5 sts. Now lift 2nd st over 1st st , 3rd st over 1st st, 4th st over 1st st and 5th st over 1st st = 1 st left. /Lotta

Please ask your shop for help. If you bought original Garnstudio yarn you will get great help at the shop.

I am not understanding the dots in the M2, M4 and M6 patterns. Am I supposed to knit/purl the dotted stitch? Am I then supposed to lift the stitches as indicated and then slip them off the needle (so a form of decrease going from 5 to 1 stitch?)? If it is a decrease, where is the equivalent increase? Or is this meant to be some type of bobble? Thank you.

1st row in pattern is explained seen from RS. Next row when knitted from WS: 3 garter sts – see above - * P3, K1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times until 6 sts remain, P3, 3 garter sts. Continue established pattern with 3 sts in garter each side.

Alexia Gaffney 18.10.2008 - 03:04:

In the very beginning of the pattern, it talks about garter and knit stitches separately. What is the difference between them? Thank you.
