I found this thread because I was searching for a clue as to how to interpret the egg cosy sweater pattern on www.agoodyarn.net (http://www.agoodyarn.net/PT_Cosy.htm). I'm working my way up to a sweater, and thought I'd try the mini one to get some basic skills down. So far, I've only knitted a few scarves and one hat.
Anyway, the pattern is as follows:
Cast on 20 sts. Work in K1P1 rib for 2 rows. Continue in stockinette stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) for 18 rows.
Next row (21 rs) work 8 sts.
Bind off center 4 sts, work remaining 8 sts, row 22 purl
Row 23 - Dec 1st each neck edge
Row 24 - purl
Row 25 - Dec 1 st each neck edge
26 - purl
So, I've successfully cast off the center 4 sts, and finished up the rest of the row, and I'm at row 22. So, how do I successfully do a "row 22 purl"? In other words, what do I do when I get to the bound off spot? I presume that I will end up with a little mini neck hole in the little mini sweater, but I'm not sure how to proceed.
Has anyone done this pattern before?
I appreciate any help, and I apologize if I should have started a new thread.
