I am knitting a guernsey in the round. the pattern came with the wool so is not a commercial pattern. I have reached a stage where I am doing neck gussets (whatever they are). I have stitches on the front shoulder needle and stitches on the back. Then there are 26 stitches in the middle. The pattern reads:
Row 1 Work 26 stitches in k2 p2 rib then k1 st from back shoulder stitches
Row 2 p3 *k2 p2, repeat from * to end, p1 from front shoulder stitches
Row 3 K3 *p2 k2 repeat from * to last 3 stitches, k2 take 1 st from back shoulder sts, k 2tog
Row 4 p3 *k2 p2 repeat from * to last 3 sts p3 p1 from front shoulder sts. . Continue in this pattern for a further 20 rows until the back gusset is 6sts wide and the front gusset is 12 sts wide. Reading this, what on earth is row 5?
This is as clear as mud to me and I am ready to throw the whole thing in the bin.
