I wonder if anyone is able to help with the below:
I am working on a small dog coat pattern and am attempting to knit the 'Milly' design.
I am now on the underside part of the pattern and I am a little confused. I would usually look up some videos but it's part of the pattern that I can't work out and I wondered if you could maybe give me some advice? When it gets to shaping under the front legs it says the below:
Next row - K9 (9,11), pattern to last 9 (9,11) sts, K to end.
"pattern to last 9..." does this refer to the 6 row pattern from earlier or from the beginning where we are making 1 after the first 4 sts and just before the last 4 sts?
I did the latter but I'm not sure it is right as I have now ended up with 31 sts instead of 25... (I'm aware I have gone wrong somewhere!!). Before I unravel it all and start again I thought I would broach to ask the question and see if anyone is able to advise me at all!
The pattern then says "Continue straight, keeping the first and last 4 sts K in every row until work measures 16 (20,22) cm from beginning...) - knitting straight, does this mean K one row and P the next or again does this refer to the 6 row pattern?
Thanks in advance and here's the pattern!
