Fragments Clue 16

Hi there and welcome to the Final Knitting Clue for our Fragments KAL!  This last 'fragment' is really kinda cute and one of my favorites! Enjoy!

Pattern Notes:
This pattern is knit over 47 stitches- don't count your stitches after rows 5 or 11 (they won't add up!)

[K1, P1, K1, P1 all into the same stitch] This is an increase (making four stitches out of one) and is knit just like it sounds.  Knit, purl, knit, and purl into the stitch without slipping it off the needle.  This is knit the same way we did our little flame stitch from last week (you can also take a look at the bobble tutorial I posted a couple of years ago).  Take a deep breath- you can do it!

[sl-3, K1, pss3o]- Slip 3 stitches to the right hand needle. Bring the yarn between the needles towards the back as if to knit, K1. Move yarn back between the needles to the front as if to purl and pass each slipped stitch over the knitted stitch and off the needle (keep the knitted stitch on the needle)

Row 1: Knit across row
Row 2: K3 *purl across* K3
Row 3: Knit across row
Row 4: K3 *purl across* K3
Row 5: K8 *[K1, P1, K1, P1 into the next stitch], K5* K3
Row 6: K3, P5 *[sl-3, K1, pss3o], P5* K3
Row 7: Knit across row
Row 8: K3 *purl across* K3
Row 9: Knit across row
Row 10: K3 *purl across* K3
Row 11: K5 *[K1, P1, K1, P1 into the next stitch], K5* to last 6 sts [K1, P1, K1, P1 into next stitch], K5
Row 12: K3, P2 *[sl-3, K1, pss3o], P5* to last 9 sts [sl-3, K1, pss3o], P2, K3

Knit through the pattern rows completely and then repeat rows 1-9 again (21 rows).

Knit 1 row. 

Congrats!  The knitting portion of our KAL is complete- now we just need to put it all together!
Tomorrow there will be a long winded post on how to join the two halves together and Friday will have a post on how to block your scarf. 

Happy Knitting!


  1. Kathie was having a problems with bobble stitch, came over & we talked it over. Then discovered I was stitching it on wrong side. So now have to unknit a few rows. Somehow, my k side was on the back not front.

    1. Oh no! Were you able to fix it?

    2. This (http://yearofswatches.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-swatches.html) is what the section should look like
