if a pattern says to continue in st st until the work is 8 inches long does that mean from the very beginnig or from where you began st st?
If it says ‘until work is 8 inches’ that means from the beginning. If it wanted you to measure from a certain spot in the pattern it would be more specific.
I agree…sometimes it will say, “from the beginning”, other times it will say refer to the length of the work.
When it say st st until the work measures 8 inches, thats exactly what they want you to do measure it your piece from the very beginning.
