I purchased Berroco knitting booklet #259 and started knitting the pattern Napoli.
I'm working on the Left Front and I'm totally lost with the instructions.
With larger needles, CO 28 ([COLOR=seagreen]29[/COLOR], 32, 33, 36) . Work 3 rows ST st, end on RS. (I got this part...now comes the issue).
Next Row (WS): CO 2 sts, p to end - [COLOR=red][B]6 ([COLOR=seagreen]11[/COLOR], 16, 21, 26)[/B][/COLOR] sts. [COLOR=darkorchid][B](I already CO 29 so how can I purl to end - and have 11 sts.)?[/B][/COLOR] In this manner CO 2 sts at beg of every WS row 19 times more, then CO 3sts at beg of every WS 5 times. AT THE SAME TIME, when there are 28 ([COLOR=seagreen][B]29[/B][/COLOR], 32, 33, 36) sts on needle, end on WS.
Dec Row 1 (RS): K25 ([COLOR=seagreen][B]27[/B][/COLOR], 29, 31, 33), k2tog, PM, K1 ([COLOR=seagreen][B]0[/B][/COLOR], 1, 0, 1). Continuing to CO sts at the beg of WS rows, dec 1 st before marker every 4th row 10 times more. When there are 26 ([COLOR=seagreen]29[/COLOR], 32, 35, 38) sts on needle after 1st marker, end on WS.
Dec Row 2 (RS): Work to 1st marker, K24 ([COLOR=seagreen][B]27[/B][/COLOR], 30, 33, 36), k2tog, PM. Still continuing to CO sts at beg of WS rows if necessary and to work decs before 1st marker, dec 1st before 2nd marker every RS row 9 times more.
It seems these 3 instructions are done simultaneously however, I don't understand if I start with 29 CO sts, how am I supposed to even begin the increases in the NEXT ROW section above when it says purl to end 11.
