I just took up knitting and my first pattern is a dog sweater but I’m having a hard time understanding it.
The instructions say:
With larger needles cast on 40 sts. Knit 5 rows inc 4 sts evey across last row. 44sts. Proceed in stocking stitch, inc 1 st at each end of needle on 3rd and every row to 50 sts then on following alt rows to 54 sts. Purl 1 row.
[B]Leg openings:next row:[/B] (RS) K5. Cast off 4 sts. K36 (including st on needle after cast off) cast off 4 sts. Knit to end of row.
[B]Note:[/B] all leg sections are worked at the same time using separate balls of yarn for each section. Beg with a purl row work 1 ins in stockig st ending with purl row.
Okay so this is where I’m confused. I know this is where the leg opening part is but what is unclear to me is where I add in the new balls of yard and how do I add them in?
The next set of instructions are:
[B]joining row:[/B] K5. Cast on 4 sts. K36. Cast on 4 sts. Knit to nd row. 54sts. Cont even work after neckband measures 5 ins ending with purl row. Place marker at each end I last row.
What does that set I instructions mean after “cont even work…”
Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
