Today's clue has a double increase (increase twice into the same stitch) and then a double decrease (decrease two stitches at once) that you may not have knit before. There's a bunch of pictures to help you through it.
[K1, yo, K1 into the same stitch]
|Knit one stitch and don't slip it off the needle...|
|Yarn over the needle and don't slip it off the needle...|
|Knit again into the same stitch. Remove it from the needle.|
You've just turned one stitch into three (increased two stitches).
|Slip your right hand needle into the next 3 stitches|
|Purl them together!|
|All Done :)|
You've just decreased two stitches (gone from three to one stitch).
If it helps to know...
You'll start this pattern with 48 stitches. Rows 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 12 will have 48 sts.
In rows 3, 4, 5 you will be increasing 14 stitches (two per pattern repeat) to 62 sts.
In rows 9, 10, 11 will be increasing 12 (also two per pattern repeat) to 60 sts.
