Hi I’ve started knitting a top down sweater in the round and I’m stuck!
Please can you help me figure out this pattern, I am not sure when to turn for german short row.
Pattern as follows:
Pattern starts with 1X1 ribbing neck in the round and then asks to insert 4 markers while working 1 rnd ribbing =
" Work 4 sts (1/2 shoulder) PM, work 30 front sts, PM, work 8 sts, PM, work 30 back sts, PM, work 4 sts (1/2 shoulder)
The 8 sts at each side are for saddle shoulders and rnd beg at middle of left shoulder
Increase at outside of there 8 sts on each side, > at the same time work and turn GSR for lower neckline at from in this manner:
Cont St-st and inc to left after shoulder sts, and to the right before shoulder sts on ever row/rnd, at the same time work turning with GSR, first after 2 sts in on front sts at each side, then 2 sts after each turning a total of 5 times at each side.
Work inc every rnd and cont in rnd over all sts until a total of 21 times and until 160 sts on ndl.
Saddle shoulders are now finished, and cont raglan inc for sleeves"
I don’t understand the bit in bold, I am happy with the M1L and M1R increases on either side of the shoulders and understand that I need to continue in St-st for the GSR but am I meant to use GSR for the neckline or shoulders in each round? I understand i need to turn 5 times and go back and forth for GSR, just not sure what the pattern means by “first after 2 sts in on front sts at each side, then 2 sts after each”
Any help/ explanation would be useful, thank you so much in advance!
