I'm thinking of trying to make a baby sweater, but am totally unsure of the instructions. I've got Sirdar pattern 1642, and for the size I'm thinking of using, I need to cast on 234 sts. Then comes the confusing part - "1st row: *K1, cast off 1 st, rep from * to end - 156 sts" per the instructions.
Am I to decrease by 1/3 by binding off every other stitch? I'm thinking I'd end up with 1/2 the original stitch count. Somehow this isn't making sense to me - any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, this might be my first attempt at a project that isn't square - so I'm still pretty new at this. Thanks for understanding.
