Okay I know this is basic stuff but ive never knitted from a pattern before and am stuck already! I am going to put the exact text from my pattern below:
Cast off 8 (9:9:10) sts at beg of next 2 rows.
34 (36:39:41) sts.
Cast off 9 (10:10:11) sts at beg of next 2 rows.
Cast off rem 16 (16:19:19) sts.”
Okay, so my jumper is 57 stitches wide, the maths don’t seem to add up (my size jumper is the first number in the brackets), also what does the “37 (36:39:41)sts” section refer to… what do it do with 34 stitches??! It doesn’t say knit them, or cast them off… and if does mean cast off 36 stitches it still doesn’t add up! I really hope you can help me, I was just getting into it.
