LTK soaker question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I am working on my first soaker and it is going very well, a lot easier than I thought it would be. First off I never did a gauge swatch... I have no clue what that is so I just skipped it. So what is a gauge swatch?

Second, I am having trouble with this part of the pattern:
"Insert a short row across the backside approximately every 8 rows by working as follows:
After about an inch, knit across ..." yadda yadda

What is that inch refering to? I am assuming you knit until 1 stitch before the blue marker, wrap and turn, purl until 1 stitch before the red marker, wrap and turn, then continue knitting. But what does the inch have to do with anything? :

*note* I posted this on the LTK message boards but no one was on but me.... and DS is down for a nap and I have time to knit my little fingers off.

I was a little confused by that too. The inch is just refering to where you pt your first short row vertically -- I think it's an inch from the bottom of the ribbing. HTHs

Yes, it is an inch from the bottom of the ribbing.
