Zigzag Eyelet Knit Throw

Nice and light for those cool summer nights and rainy days.

[Note: several readers have asked about the use of markers in this pattern. The abbreviation “pM” , for place marker, usually indicates that you place the marker when instructed to do so, then slip the marker each subsequent row until the instrux tell you to remove it. If it never indicates removal, just continue to the end of the pattern. Be sure to SLIP the marker, b/c if it becomes knitted in, you might not be able to get it out.]

    I want to knit the throw, I’m having trouble understanding if the 5 stitches and then place marker stays that whay throughout, or are those 5 stitches incorporated into the pattern and the marker is taken away.

    Jane and Linda,
    I’ve added a note to this post explaining the pM question. Please see above. Hope it helps.

    Thank you for the quick answer and I think I’ve got it now.
    Those 5 stitiches stay knited, slip the marker and then start the pattern knit stitches
    i.e. k 5 slip marker, knit 12 and continue the pattern, knitting 5 stitches at the end of the pattern row.

    Upon rereading the pattern, I think I’m wrong. Those first 5 stitches are counted in the first stitches of the pattern rows.

      Mickey, you can definitely make this in sport weight, but because it’s thinner that cotton,, I’d buy a couple of extra skeins.
