I am a relatively novice knitter, and am working on a vintage lady's cardigan sweater (Lee Target #5942). I just started the right front, which requires that you "slip the first 14 stitches onto a thread". Since these are the first stitches in this row, I end up with a narrow tube at the start of this row. Is this correct?
The next section says to "Con. in patt. inc. once at the end of the next and every foll. 8th row (keeping extra sts. in patt.) until there are 49 sts. on the needle, ending on the wrong side".
I'm not sure if the increases involve the 14 stitches on the thread, or if they are new increases. If anyone has some advice, I would appreciate it.
