This is a really easy pattern of increases and decreases, perfect for novice knitters
I’ve been an avid crocheter for some time now and eventually decided to dabble in the world of knitting. Of course, I then inevitably made the mistake of telling people that I was learning to knit and getting sent requests as well as patterns to try out. Most of them were way out of my depth but one that a friend sent me seemed easy enough, though I can honestly say that I’ve got no idea where she must have gotten it from. The original directions were as follows: Cast on 5, increase to 50 stitches, decrease to 5, cast off.

It took me a little bit of research but I finally science’d out what it was that she was trying to say and I think I might have even managed to replicate the results quite well. I would like to think that my version of the written pattern is a wee bit easier to follow though, as it has actual steps and not just a couple of vague ideas all in a row.
