So I got this tiny chihuahua-minipin mix puppy recently and he’s constantly cold, so being the warm hearted knitter that I am I decided to try to knit him a nice warm sweater.
I picked this pattern: http://www.ptyarn.com/6plydoggiejacket.html
And a nice sportweight lorna’s laces yarn and…
Everything was going fine till I slammed into the following instructions:
Row 1: k5 (7, 11) cast off next 6 (6, 10) sts, k46 (56, 80), cast off next 6 (6, 10) sts, k5, (7, 11).
Next row: k5 (7, 11, turn, cast on 6 (6, 10) sts, turn k46, (56, 80) turn, cast on 6 (6, 10)sts, turn, k7, (11, 13) Total: (68, 82, 122) sts.
Cont until work measures 5-3/4" (7-1/4", 10") or (14, 18, 25cm) ending with a purl row.
As I understand it I am still knitting flat (and joining into circular knitting at some point later) when I run into that part… which means every other row is a purl row… right? SO… i did row 1 there and was fine and then tried to purl my way back and hit the gap from those bound off stitches and then I was like :??
How on earth is this supposed to work??? HEEEEEELP!!! :shrug:
