it says this for the basketweave cape pattern
"Work first 4 sts of chart,
work 8-st rep 9 times, work last 7 sts."
is it saying:work the 1st 4 stitches according to the the corresponding row, repeat the 8 st section 9 times all the way through the row until you reach the last 7 stitches, where you keep going according to the chart?
I can understand the 1st 4 stitches for the odd rows - RS.
but what about following the instructions for the even rows -WS?
to follow the chart wouldn't it be the reversal of the instructions :"Work first 7 sts of chart,
work 8-st rep 9 times, work last 4 sts." instead?
