I really don’t want to frog this… I consider myself to be an advanced knitter, I successfully completed the Tree of Life afghan for goodness sakes! But I don’t understand “fitted” patterns very well.
I’m trying to make a dog sweater (I would send the link, but this forum isn’t letting me since my account is so new).
I’m completely fine until I get to the Shape Leg Openings section:
[I]K5 (5, 7, 11, 13), join second ball of
yarn and bind off next 4 (6, 6, 10, 13) sts, work to last 9 (11,
13, 21, 26) sts, join third ball of yarn and bind off 4 (6, 6, 10,
13) sts, knit to end of row.
Working all sections at same time with separate balls of
yarn, continue in St st until pieces measure 1 (1½, 1½, 2½,
3)” from beginning of Leg Openings, end with a wrong side
OK, so since I’m making medium size here is what I did so far: I knit 7, I joined a new ball of yarn, using the ORIGINAL ball of yarn, I bound off 6 sts. Using the ORIGINAL ball of yarn I knit to the last 13 sts, joined another ball of yarn, bound off 6 sts with ORIGINAL ball of yarn, and finished the row with the original ball of yarn. Did I do that correctly?
If so, I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s telling me to do next. “Working all sections at the same time with separate balls of yarn…”. What sections exactly am I going to be working? I realize that the bind off sts are the leg holes, but I’m not sure what to do with the other balls of yarn… is there a video somewhere? I’ve searched and searched the internet for help but every explanation doesn’t make sense to me. I know I’m probably making this harder than it is, but that’s how my mind works
