I finished my Tree of Life towel!

Don't they look pretty together?

The rest of my Mason-Dixon Knitting story is on my brand! new! blog!

wow! I made one in the same color and that looks way better than mine!
beautiful! good job! well done! pat yourself on the back!
I got a question (I warn you - I am still a newbie knitter!) On the moss grid towel pattern, it says "From this point, all pattern directions start in the 6th stitch.." or something to that degree.

My question is: what do you do in the first 6 stitches?

Sorry for my dumb question - but I really want to make the towel!
Dear Robin,
The sixth stitch is the first stitch in the directions for each row. Maybe think of it as "starting with" instead of "starting in"? The first and last five stitches of each row are moss stitches (K1, P1, K1, P1, K1).

I placed 2 stitch markers, one after the first five moss stitches to remind me to start the pattern and one before the last five stitches to remind me to start the border.

I'm a new knitter, too. After (and I'm so embarrassed to write this) decades of confusion, I finally figured it out this past winter. If I could do the moss grid towel, believe me, so can you!
