    Help!! Can someone please tell me what the reference to row 2 means throughout this pattern? Thankyou

      It means to work each stitch the way it is — if it’s a knit stitch, knit it. If it’s a purl stitch, purl it.
      Let me know if you need more help, or a visual of some sort.

    How much yarn do you need for this?

      I don’t have a yarn meter so I’m not positive, but it was less than one half of a skein of Hobby Lobby’s “I Love This Yarn”, which is about a 250 yard skein.

    i need visual help for row 2 please!!!

      I will work on getting a picture of this part up ASAP. Just look at each stitch as you come to it and if it looks like a knit stitch with the “bump” (where the yarn wraps around the stitch) in the back, then knit it … and if it looks like a purl stitch with the “bump” in the front, purl it.

    Just made this in coco brown for my 19 year old daughter-couldn’t wait to finished! It’s adorable and turned out great. She loves it- perfect fit too. Thanks so much.

    Am I correct that row 2 refers to row 1, row 4 refers to row 3, etc? So row 2 would be K3, K1, P2, K4, P4, K1, K3? I’m fairly new to cables so that part is confusing. Row 4 would be K3, K1, P2, K4, Cable 2 back, K4, P2, K1, K3? On row 6 and succeeding rows will the cable row be opposite what the cable row above reads? (K3, K1, C3R, k2, C3L, C3R, K2, C3L, K1, K3?) I love this earwarmer and would love to knit it! Hopefully you can help me understand the pattern.

      When a pattern says “work each stitch in the manner it presents itself” (or anything similar to that phrase) it basically just means that if it looks like a purl stitch, purl it, and if it looks like a knit stitch, knit it. I hope that’s helpful! If not let me know and I’ll try to explain it in greater detail.

        I’m very new to cables so this is very confusing. Please give more detail or refer to my last question and tell me if I’m headed in the right direction. Thank you.

          That direction (“work each stitch in the manner it presents itself”) isn’t at all exclusive to cabling, it’s just an easier way to write out a pattern when the reverse is just the opposite of what stitches you’ve done on the front. So for this pattern Row one and it’s reverse, Row 2, which is the opposite of the stitches done for the previous row since you are working each stitch in the manner it presents itself, would be as follows:

          Row 1: Knit 3, Purl 1, Knit 2, Purl 4, Knit 4, Purl 4, Knit 2, Purl 1, Knit 3
          Row 2: Knit 3, Knit 1, Purl 2, Knit 4, Purl 4, Knit 4, Purl 2, Knit 1, Knit 3

          With the rows following the cable rows it is the same principle; you are working each stitch in the manner it presents itself which will be the opposite of how you worked it in the previous row:

          Row 5: K3, P1, Cable 3 Left, P2, Cable 3 Right, Cable 3 Left, P2, Cable 3 Right, P1, K3
          Row 6: K3, K1, P3, K2, P6, K2, P3, K1, K3

          But it is infinitely more simple just to look at the stitch and work it the way it presents itself than it is to try to go through and write out those rows of the pattern. If you’re unsure of the difference between what a knit stitch and what a purl stitch look like and that’s why you’re having trouble working them in the way they present themselves on the reverse side, here is a good reference: http://www.lionbrand.com/faq/73.html

          If that is still not helpful let me know what else needs clarified and I will try my best to reword it.

            Thank you so much. It was the cable rows that were confusing me. I think I understand now.

          • Devin February 4, 2014 at 1:18 pm

            No problem! Let me know if you need any other help. 🙂
