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.
Thank you so much!!!
