I’m having trouble with the 6th and 5th last rows of my garment (the collar).
The pattern is a double-rib and I start the 6th last row with an even amount of stitches (118). The instructions say to cast off 6, then rib 18, then sl 1, K2 tog, psso, rib 3 (12 times), rib to end.
The 5th last row says to cast off 6 stitches, then rib to end. I have 2 questions.
After casting off 6 stitches in the first of those rows, do I count the single stitch I have on my right needle as the first of the “rib 18” instruction or should I start counting with the stitches on the left needle?
And when I do the second row, “cast off 6 and rib to end”, should there be a discernible double rib pattern that I am knitting into or should I just carry on regardless? Many thanks in advance. Karen.
