Hello! I hope someone can help me interpret this. I am working on the hood part of the sweater, here are the written instructions:
HOOD (worked sideways) With larger needles, cast on 21 sts. 1st row: (RS). K2. Work 1st row Panel Pat. K2. P2. 2nd row: K2. P2. Work 2nd row Panel Pat. P2. These 2 rows form pat. Panel Pat is now in position. Work 1 row even in pat.
Shape neck edge of Hood: Keeping cont of pat, cast on 4 sts beg next and every following alt row until there are 53 sts, taking inc sts into reverse stocking st. Work 1 row even in pat. Cast on 5 sts beg next row. 58 sts. Place first marker at beg of last row.
Cont even in pat until work from first marker measures 11" [28 cm], ending with a WS row.
Shape back of Hood: Next row: Pat to last 4 sts. Turn. Next row: Pat to end of row. Rep last 2 rows 4 times more. Next row: Pat across all sts. Place second marker at end of last row.
I’m at the “Shape back of Hood” where it says to knit to last 4 and then turn. I don’t understand if it’s telling me to leave those four stitches unworked on the right side, turn the work and start the next wrong side row, or am I supposed to turn the work and work only those four stitches for the next 8 rows, like short rows? I’m having a hard time visualizing how it’s supposed to be and the pattern doesn’t include a schematic for the hood. Please help!
