ok here is the pattern- look towards bottom for question (but you need to see the whole pattern to answer it )
Cast on 90 sts. Work in ribbing on K2, P2, for 4 rows.
Row 5: K6, ribbing to the last 6 sts, K6.
Row 6: P6, ribbing to the last 6 sts, P6.
Row 7: same as row 5
Row 8: K8, ribbing to the last 8 sts, K8.
Row 9: P8, ribbing to the last 8 sts, P8.
Row 10: same as row 8
Row 11: K10, ribbing to the last 10 sts, K10.
Row 12: P10, ribbing to the last 10 sts, P10.
Row 13: same as row 11
Row 14: K12, ribbing to the last 12 sts, K12.
Row 15: P12, ribbing to the last 12 sts, P12.
Row 16: same as row 14
Row 17: K14, ribbing to the last 14 sts, K14.
Row 18: P14, ribbing to the last 14 sts, P14.
Row 19: same as row 17
Continue in the this way to work 2 sts more in the crosswise ridges (at beginning and end) and 2 sts less in the vertical ribs at center, every 3 rows, until only the center vertical rib of K2 remains. K1 row plain and break off yarn, leaving at least an 18” end to sew with.
What does that mean? I know I should be able to figure out the pattern but I can't? Can somebody make it dummy proof for me and finish the pattern? Pretty please?
I see that everytime the beginning stitches are dropped by two. BUT I get confused since they same for example row 19 is the same as 17. HELP!
