This is a pattern for a small knit hobo purse that I am having trouble with…
[B]Row 1 (RS):[/B] Work row 1 of Texture Stitch patt over 12 sts, sm, inc 1, k11, m1, sm, work row 1 of Texture Stitch patt over 12 sts. Continue to work first and last 12 sts in texture patt, keeping stitches between markers in St st. At the same time, increase 1 st after the first stitch marker and before the second stitch marker on every RS until there are 48 sts (24 sts St st in the center).***
Increase 2 sts in the center on every sixth row once more (50 Sts). Work four rows even. End on WS. Place stitches on stitch holder.
***I got to here in the pattern, but am not sure what to do next - how many more rows are left in the pattern? Do I start increasing by 2 stitches in the next row or not for six more? And what does the 50 sts refer to? I am really stumped on this one… just not sure how to proceed in general. Any help would be much appreciated!
Here is the Texture Stitch pattern in case it helps:
[B]Rows 1 and 3 (RS):[/B] Knit
[B]Row 2 (WS):[/B] *(P2tog, K2tog) in the next two sts, drop both sts from left hand needle; rep from * across.
[B]Row 4:[/B] P1, rep from * of row 2 to last st, p1.
Repeat rows 1-4 for Texture Stitch patt.
