    You don’t really go into what to do with that dropped stitch. We’re only dropping one stitch every 4 when we bind off. Maybe I missed something in the directions…

      Once you drop the stitch in the bind-off process, all of the stitches below it will also drop on their own — giving you the effect shown in the pictures.

    I did not understand directions – looks like you only “drop stitch” when you are binding off – did I miss something? Please explain – this looked interesting.

      See my response to Victorja above — the dropped stitch in the bond off row takes care of the rest πŸ™‚

    Could you please post a video showing what you mean in the bind-off directions? I cannot visualize this. Thank you!

    How do you figure the difference in width after the stitches are dropped; when you are casting on?

    What do you do with the dropped stitch at the ribbing rows? How do you keep the dropped stitch from going all the way to the cast on stitches and creating a space in the ribbing?

    I’m like these other ladies, it makes little sense if none at all and to keep saying I just explained that above when obviously the explanation did not help. I was interested in this until I read instructions or lack of

    ILOVE this pattern, but I have to say I am with these other ladies, I am one of those people who just can’t seem to learn things by reading a lot of times. I need visual aids also.

    I am dyslexic so sometimes reading I just can not make it work. and this is one of them. I alsohave had a closed head injury, and sometimes things just won’t click in my head I am trying very hard to understand this but it just isn’t working.

    This is very easy, for those having trouble – get a swatch going and do a little square. I bet you go ahh-ha!

    I have always wondered how this was done! Came across technique in several other patterns, but it was never explained how to accomplish. Maybe state at YO that it is the stop point of the run. We all drop stitches when knitting, and know what happens when they aren’t “caught” in time. Same results, but are stopped from progressing by the YO. Thanks! Now can maybe work on the other projects! And yes, Swatches make the difference.

    Worst instructions ever. I am a beginner and the instructions never mention what you do when you reach the YO stitch on Row 2. It should be noted as it happens, ie. P4 K1 (release YO), continue to end. I had to go on youtube to see how it was done –Good Grief πŸ™‚

      It’s a bit mean to say “worst instructions ever.” Perhaps a more constructive comment would have been to say why you personally were confused and how perhaps they could be improved? There is another human on the other side of the screen, after all, and you never know how much it might hurt to have something you spent time on to be branded as “worst ever.” Just some food for thought. πŸ™‚ The crafting community should be kind and helpful, not judgmental and mean-spirited. πŸ™‚
