Baby shawl pattern question
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Sabina,

This is the first time I ever had a question send in from Singapore! Welcome.

From the pattern instruction your gave me, you be able to fit all those sts into the last 6 sts.

Here is how;
K1, Sl 1, K1, Pass the slip stitch over the stitch just knitted --- This takes 3 sts to do.
Then yarn forward doesn't require any stitch, just bring the yarn to the front, then k 3. So, the total number of sts are 6.

Just go over each st and try again. I am sure you'll get it.
If you still have more question then feel free to drop me a line.

Thanks for the question and good luck with the knitting,
