hi, i have been knitting for years, but can only understand pretty basic patterns. i am trying to knit the i-matey dog sweater (free from Bernat.com), and i don’t understand the leg part (below). i’ve put the part i understand in italic, and the part i don’t understand is underlined.
[B]Shape Leg Openings and Place Chart:[/B]
[I]1st row: K4 (5-6-10). Cast off next 4 (5-6-9) sts. K8 (12-14-27) (including st on needle after cast off).
Work Chart A (A-B-B) across next 20 (20-26-26) sts reading row from right to left. K8 (12-14-27). Cast off next 4 (5-6-9) sts. Knit to end of row. [/I]
[B]Note:[/B] [I]All Leg Sections are worked at the same time using a separate ball of yarn for each section (keeping continuity of chart throughout). [/I] [U]Beg with a purl row work 1 (1½-2-2½) ins [2.5 (4-5-6) cm] even from cast off sts (keeping continuity of chart), ending with RS facing for next row. [/U]
does this mean that the stitches before the cast off are put on a stitch holder or moved from one needle to the next? or am i supposed to knit them as well?
if someone can help me that would be greatly appreciated! :cheering:
