Gearing up for my 8 hr. sweater from last minute gifts(hourglass sweater) and I'm confused about the directions. I've never followed a pattern for knitting in the round.
I get through the 1st paragraph okay... CO...joining,...knit 10 rnds (got that!), [color=red]end last rnd 2 sts before the beginning marker[/color] [color=darkblue]*Will the remaining 2 sts. become ssk, k1 (of decrease round)?
[/color]Decrease rnd: ssk, k1, k2tog, knit to within 2 sts. of next marker; repeat from* once more--4 sts. decresed. Knit 8 rnds.
[color=red][i]Repeat the last 9 rnds[/i]. UH?... :?? [/color][color=darkblue]Which last 9 rnds? [/color]Am I suppose to knit a decrease rnd once followed by the 8 knit rnds??
Increase rnd:*kf&b, k1, kf&b, k within 1st st. marker repeat from * once more--4 sts. increased. knit 13 rnds.
[color=red][i]Repeat last 14 rnds[/i][/color]. [color=darkblue]which 14 rnds?? [/color](once I understand how to repeat 9 rows in (above confusion) then I should be able to figure this one out.)
If ya'll can help get me through this part of the sweater, then I will only have a bizzzzzillion more questions. :oops:
