I am knitting a sweater, and I’m having difficulty with one point in the pattern.
I’m knitting the back pannel, and after the bottom edge in rib, the pattern changes:
row 1 (rs) P1, *sl 1, P1, rep from * to end.
row 2 purl.
row 3 P2, *sl 1, P1, rep from * to last st, P1.
row 4 purl
This I can do well, but after this section it changes again saying:
Cont in patt, shaping side seams by inc 1 st at each end of
next and foll 8 alt rows, taking inc sts into patt.
I thought I was following it correctly, but it seems to change the way the pattern turns out. I’m increasing at the beginning and end of each row 1 and 3, using a purl back and front to increase the stitches.
Can anyone help clarify what is supposed to happen/how to make it happen?
