Hi All… this pattern is a 1 on a 1-5 scale on ease… but I can’t wrap my brain around it!
Drops Design (LOVE love their stuff) tank top.
Problems in [COLOR=Navy][B]blue bold[/B][/COLOR].
Rib: Row 1 (right side): * P 3, K 2 *, repeat from * - *.
Row 2 (wrong side): * K 3, P 2 *, repeat from * - *.
Decreasing tips: All decs are made on right side rows.
[COLOR=Navy] Dec by P 2 tog each side of the center 6 sts.[/COLOR][B][COLOR=Navy]
so do I Purl the knit and next purl stitches together?
- you must inc 1 st at each side for every dec at center.
- Inc on right side rows by K 2 sts in 1 st.
[COLOR=Navy]- Make incs inside 1 edge st to keep the edge smooth.
- Knit the increased sts in the rib pattern.
[B]Seems to contradict: Increase 1 stitch in, BUT, knit the increased sts in rib pattern… but if I am starting on a “RIGHT” side, the first 3 stitches are purl…??? OR does it mean when I do the next row, keep in pattern?
Front: Cast on and knit rib, keeping 1 edge st – begin and end rib with P 3 at each side. Put a marker at center front, between 2 K sts.
After 1 cm start dec at the center front and inc at sides – see Decreasing tips and Increasing tips above – dec and inc every other row.
[COLOR=Navy]I guess, I am not sure HOW I keep the pattern, if I am loosing parts of my pattern by inc. and dec… I cast on with scrap yarn, to try and figure out, but still can’t… not even sure if my questions makes sense, I am so confused…
