I'm new to knitting and have been trying to knit a little jumper for my son. The back finishes off in reverse stocking stitch and tells me to "work straight until back measures 20cms ending with a knit row".
This raises the first questionb- does this mean that the last row should be purl ready to start a knit row, or I should complete a knit row ?
Then to shape the shoulders it says - " cast off 14 sts at beg of next 2 rows. Slip remaining 17 sts onto a holder" This again confuses me. Should I be casting off 14, then knitting or purling 17, then casting off 14 ? Or should I be casting off 14, knitting or purling to the end of the row, then casting off 14 ?
If anyone can help I'd be really grateful as I'm really confused.
Thanks in advance,
