I am at yellow marker. Instructions say: “Row 3: Knit to last stitch before turn, k2 together, k3, turn work.”

Do I knit to last stitch before white (LEFT) marker or knit all the way to the end, past white marker?

I’ve attached finished shawl shape for reference. Hoping to finish before Saturday ESSS short row show ‘n’ share.

THANKS!

“Captain Fantastic, raised and regimented, hardly a hero…

Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?Measuring Brother, Can You Spare A Dime , – there’s my friend again; I’m beginning to like him – because I have some purple wool – recently untangled by I – I could use.

41.5 (x2) = Total L = 83 in x 33 avg W

If I’m correct, I need 99 L based on my W…pattern check:

Remember that you need the 1:3 ratio to get the correct sizing for folding. Since our width is 13″ (ish) we need the length to be 39″ (ish).

…I was right!

Like A PrayerDing! Dang! So I need sixteen more inches…and I just realized the purple wool I had in mind to finish this matches the fiber content of Like A Prayer Shawl…LIGHTBULB!…that would make a nice felted knit bag also with the existing color blocking…OMG! Especially, if it measures up for the same bag!

Bing! Bang! Make it so!

But then I have no other wool on hand to continue with Brother, Can You Spare A Dime. 😦

Oh, but then I find something made 90% of New Wool. New Wool? Will it felt. On hold…tomorrow will call International Trade Association Office of Textiles and Apparel.

In the meantime, I suppose I will commence Captain Fantastic and The Brown Dirt Cowboy.
