|Finally got our Christmas tree|
I am continuing my posts about the 2012 Advent Calendar Scarf by Kristen Benecken, who is wollkistchens on Ravelry.
Day 14 is a pretty easy day. The only challenging stitches are knit 4 stitches together for which Kristen
uses the symbol 4, and knit 4 stitches together through the back loop, ∫
She recommends that you use a crochet hook if you have trouble with these stitches. I have a little tutorial at the end of this post showing both stitches with knitting needles and with a crochet hook.
Here is what the Day 14 section looks like:
Knit 4 stitches together, k4tog, 4
There are 4 stitches on the left needle
Insert the right needle as for a regular knit stitch through all 4 stitches.
YO and bring needle back to the front through all 4 stitches (this can be tough if you are a tight knitter)
K4tog using a crochet hook:
Insert the crochet hook as through the 4 stitches as though it is your right needle.
Pull through all 4 stitches to the front.
Knit 4 through the back loop, k4tbl,
Insert the right needle through all 4 stitches from right to left behind the left needle.
If you have trouble bringing the needle back to the front without losing the YO, you can do this stitch with a crochet hook.
Insert the crochet hook through 4 stitches from right to left behind the left needle.
shaping the planet with Day 14.
