Hi! I’m trying to finish a doll sweater for my daughter, and I’m just not skilled enough yet to figure the next part out.
The pattern is here: http://sockpixie.blogspot.com/2007/05/18-doll-summer-fun-ensemble-free.html
The section I’m on is labeled “Shirt” and I’ve finished this: “Separate stitches into 2 groups of 35 stitches each. Put one set on holder.”
I simply cannot wrap my brain around the next instruction: “[I]BO 2 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows. You should be on a purl row, purl 1 row.[/I]
R1 (RS): K2, K2TOG knit till end of row, K2TOG, K2
R2 (WS): Purl
Repeat R1 and R2 twice.”
I do know how to do the R1 & R2 parts but don’t understand [B]which[/B] 2 rows to bind-off the 2 beginning stitches of, or why I should be on a purl row. Thank you so much for any help you can give!
