For illustration purposes, let's say I have 10 stitches on my needle and I have placed a marker between stitches 5 and 6 (making 5 stitches on either side of the marker). The row to be knitted looks like this:
Row 1: K4, k2tog, k4
What would you do?
- Slip stitch 5 to the right needle, remove the marker, slip the stitch back to the left needle, then knit two together.
- Do #1, then place marker on the right needle.
- Do #1, then slip the stitch just worked back onto the left needle, place marker, slip.
- You can't k2tog while there's a marker between the stitches! There is a problem with the pattern.
