I am challenging myself…perhaps beyond my current skill level. Nevertheless, this is the Diary Cardigan by Anke Strik. The pattern calls for contiguous sleeve construction and german short rows. I am practicing on scrap yarn until I fully understand what the hey I am doing here. The pattern begins with the collar and then forms a yoke. Then, there is a second set of increases—and where I am confused.
My markers are as follows: green, German short row turn point; red, shoulder marker; pink, back marker.
The area of the pattern marketed in yellow indicates that I sM, k1, M1lk… but there is no indication of the first set of instructions… k1, spl, k slipping first marker until the red shoulder marker. Is this just assumed on the part of the pattern designer? Bit confused here and would appreciate some expert feedback.
