Has anyone knitted the Crystal Palace Teddy Bear sweater?
I’m working on the cardigan. I finished the ribbing and the chart of the bear for the left front. After that the directions say to knit in stockinette for 11 rows. Then the directions get squirrely for the shaping:
Dec 1 st at end of next row and at same (front) edge on every foil 3rd row until 17(19,21) sts rem. Work 7 rows straight. Cast off loosely.
Per the newborn directions, I currently have 24 stitches. If I dec one stitch per row I’ll have it down to 17 stitches in 7 rows. I’m not sure if that’s what the directions say to do, though, and if they do – do I dec along the front where the buttons will be or along the side where the seam to the back will be? Does anyone know what “foil” refers to?
