Newish knitter in search of experts. I’m knitting an aran sweater - ALICE STARMORE, Na Craga. Have completed the rib :
RS pp, cable back, k, k from cable , pp
WS kk, pp, kk and so on.
Have 142 stitches as I’m making the third size.
Next WS row reads Rib 5 [1,3,5,8]; m1, rib 8(9,8,7,7]; rep from to the last 5[2,3,9,6] sts; m1, rib 5[2,3,9,6].
146 [154,160,170,180] Sts.
HELP! can anyone explain this row to me?
I presume I would Rib 3, *m1, Rib 8;
then repeat *m1, rib8 to the last 3 stitches
then m1, rib 3
Am I reading it right? And what does ‘Rib 3’ and ‘Rib 8’ mean?
Many thanks for your pateince.
Then it’s changing needles and reading the charts.
