So, I'm working on a pair of armwarmers from a Bernat pattern. I'm about to start into the ribbing on the other end and I'm a bit confused.
It was 3x2 ribbing, then stocking stitch, then back to 3x2. So, it wants my right side to be facing me as I start my ribbing, but when I went from ribbing to stocking, I made sure that the purl stitch was the next row I'd start. So, why am I starting the ribbing that has a purl at the beginning on the row that would be normal knitting?
And then, I don't understand the part that says "cast off in pattern". My mother doesn't understand it either. What pattern are we talking about? The exact piece says:
"Rep 1st and 2nd rows of (K3, P2) ribbing until work from beg measures 13 ins, ending with RS facing for next row. Cast off in pat."
How does one cast off in a pattern?
...and why do I see that the other armwarmer is going to look beautiful and this one will be super shoddy in comparison? XD
