Hello dear knitting friends,
I am a beginning knitter and I recently learned how to read a knitting chart through You Tube but a term appeared in a recent pattern chart from "Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2012." The pattern is the Ipswich Scarf by Elinor Brown on page 122. The chart has several blocks that read "no stitch." What does this mean? Am i to skip over or drop a stitch or what? I am very puzzled. Can someone please explain??? Thank you.
You don't do anything when you come to a "no stitch" block. Just skip that block and go on to the next one. It can happen if there's a decrease in the previous row or if there's going to be an increase later on the chart. In order to keep the chart square the designer need to introduce this kind of block as a place holder for the chart.
Hi mtn, the above links will be helpful to read. crafty council shows a box 70% grey as a no stitch box. Just remember that not all patterns give same legend so to read each new pattern instruction carefully. Hope you enjoy your knitting pattern.
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
Thank you so much!!!
