  5. Hi everyone! Thanks for all the great comments...glad everyone is enjoying this pattern.

    The K1, P1 bind off is very similar to the standard bind off. K1 stitch, P1 stitch - there are 2 stitches on your right hand needle. Slip the K stitch over the P stitch - 1 stitch on your needle. K1 stitch. Slip the P stitch over the K stitch. Continue alternating with the K1 P1 until all your stitches have been bound off.

    Hope this helps!

  6. Oops, one more thing!

    Maria, the rows you inquired about are part of the odd rows: (K1, P1) x2, P41, (K1, P1) x2.

    Let me know if there are any more questions! =)

  7. Kelly -
    Is there any way you could post this pattern without the black background? I'd love to make it, but can't copy it this way.
    Thanks!

  15. I was surprised to see a yarn shop selling this particular pattern, copied right from this blog as it is, comments and all, for $5 today. It is being used as part of a monthly knit-a-long, and they are planning to also use others from here throughout the year.
