Hi I m trying a cardigan pattern called Marion. The pattern starts with the back casting on 68 st. Then P next row. Row 2 it is K17 w and t. I think I understand wrap and turn. It then has short rows for 4 rows. then P and K rows to the end.
I don’t understand how this is the back. What are the extra short rows for? Why is it only on one side of the back? The pattern has K and P rows for 40 rows then start on the front right side. But it doesn’t seem like it will be long enough for a back.
Can some one explain this?
