I’m new to knitting and tackling a baby sweater. For the life of me I can’t figure out the pattern language. Can you please help?
Here is what it says:
Work 12 rows dec 1 st at each:roflhard: end of next and every foll alt row.
Since the decrease is to be 12 stitches and there are 12 rows to knit, I assume that there will be a decrease at the end of each row. Since its knit, purl and the shape would be / \ - I assume I would do k2tog for the decrease on the knit row, but what would be the decrease for the purl row?
Next troublesome spot is on the Left Front
Work 3 rows dec 1 st at raglan edge in 1st and following alternative row. Does this mean the first and third row? What is a raglan edge?
Finally … the dreaded AT SAME TIME
Work 5 rows dec 1 st at raglan edge in the next and every foll alt row AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st neck edge in every row.
Any guidance would be appreciated! Kathie
