I just begin to knit (and I am french), and I found a beautiful pattern for a sweater.
I have a really hard time to understand it. I did the first 2 rows but I’m stuck at the third. If I knf on either side of markers I’ll have more than 50sts. And what means work across row? Do I knit or purl? Shame on me, I’m really bad!!
Thanks for your help.
With larger needles CO 38sts.
Row 1: k1, pm, (p1, k1) 3 times, p1,
pm, (k1, p1) 11 times, pm, (k1, p1) 3
times, k1, pm, p1.
Row 2: Work in seed st (knit the purl
sts and purl the knit sts), increasing
one st at each end of row. 40sts
Row 3: kfb of first st, work across row
knitting through the front and back of
the sts on either side of marker, kfb of
last st. 50sts
Row 4 and all WS rows: Work even
Repeat these last two rows until there
are 16sts before the first marker.
Continue increases as established for
raglan shaping until there are 25sts

increase any more sts at the neck
Next Row: Work even placing sleeves
onto scrap yarn as you come to them.
Work even until piece measures 5in
