I want to start my first jumper.....eeeeek, and just want to check I understand the pattern before I start.
Its a Debbie Bliss pattern in case anyone has it - from simply soft
Its says Issue 1: And I'm just going to show one size cause its easier
1st Dec row (right side) K6, [K2tog, k7, skpo, k3] 9 times. 117 sts.
work 5 rows in st st
So on the right side (which is marked with a safty pin), I am going to knit 6, then follow the instructions in brackets 9 times, then what? I have 117 stiches on the left needle? (i think I am right on this one, as the number of stiches decreases at the end of each dec row instruction)
Then the next issue. Issue 2
Inc Row: (right side) K1, kfb, k to last 3 sts, kfb, k2
Cont in st st and inc in this way at the each of 5 foll
8th rows. 93sts.
Work 9 rows in st st
I really don't understand anything from Cont in st st. I am knitting in st st every 5th row after I have kitted 8 rows? Then when I have 93 sts knit 9 rows?
issue 3 -
Mostly it says to work x number rows in st st
But on one section it gives instructions for a inc or dec row ie K6, [K2tog, k7, skpo, k3] 9 times. 117 sts, and then says to work 5 rows? Do I do that in st st, or in the same as the previous instruction? I am guessing st st, because the number of stiches left on teh needle (issue 1) decreases appropriatly
Issue 4 - am I really ready to start this jumper?
