as usual, i find myself knitting and confused. i've never had to do reverse shaping before. i'm knitting the right front. the pattern sez:
Dec Row (RS): K20(20-24-25-29-30), k2 tog, k16(18-20-23-25-28) – 37(39-45-49-55-59) sts. Complete to correspond to left front, reversing all shaping. Work neck decs as k3, KSP and armhole decs as SSK, k2. Bind off for armholes and shoulders on WS rows.
okay, so i see that i'm going to have to consult the left front and do everything backwards. the left front part that the right front would correspond to sez:
Work even on 31(33-39-43-49-53) sts until piece measures 9” from beg, end on WS. Inc 1 st at beg of the next row – 32(34-40-44-50-54) sts. Rep this inc every 3/4” 4 times more, then every 1/2” twice. Work even on 38(40-46-50-56-60) sts until piece measures 13 1/2” from beg, end on WS.
so, i thought that this would mean that after the right front measures 9", i would end on the RS. then i thought that i would inc 1 sts and the end of the next row, which would be the WS. i tried this and found that the inc turned out right over the front band, when i think i should be making the inc to make the armhole side bigger, because that's how the left front was. so, i unknit back to the part where i'm supposed to do the first inc and i'm trying to figure out this mysterious reverse shaping.
where am i going wrong?
best sunday evening to all,
