I am making a sweater and it’s my first. Now, the instructions for making the raglan were pretty clear, but now I get lost after having bound off the necessary stitches for the neck. The pattern reads:
“At 47cm for the neck, knit 14, cast off 24
stitches and knit 14”. (This I did).
“Finish each side separately, knit 2 rows and cast off on the neck side 4sts, and repeat once. And bind off”
I am super confused!!! I cannot cast off on the neck side when I am coming from the arm side (thus ending on the neck side). Does it mean then, cast off 4sts when starting the row on the neck side and then simply knit (or purl) the other row to come back? Then I will need 4 rows to cast off 8 stitches right?
And when it reads to “repeat once”, I think it’s a mistake, I have the pattern also in French and the French version reads to cast off 6 stiches (makes sense because I will have 6sts left, not 8).
I’m sorry for the confusing message, I am also confused because the English and French versions don’t really match. But the sweater is super pretty and I want to try.
If you can help me, I’ll be super grateful!
Thanks in advance
