I'm new here & I am trying to help my Mom find an answer to a knitting question. She's 86 & has always knit & crocheted. She's getting a little forgetful & since I can only knit very little, I came here to ask.
She is knitting a scarf with Lion Brand Thick & Jiffy yarn. The beginning has a point but then increases to about 5 inches across. The problem is with her edges. They are rolling in. She thought mybe she is working too tightly? The increased part of the pattern is row 1 K 5, p 4. Row 2 K4, p 5. Rows 3-6 repeat rows 1-2 twice more. Row 7 P 4, k 5, Row 8 P 5, k 4, & rows 9-12 repeat rows 7-8 twice more until piece measures approximately 54 inches long.
Hope you can be of some help.
Thanks in advance,
smiling is contagious
