Help with pattern instructions

I am at the next round for the decrease round. I am confused because the pattern says to repeat at the star. I am doing the size medium which is for 200 stitches. I started the Next round but come up short at the end and. Ow need to start the round over. I have the 2 inch k1, p1 ribbing complete

With circular needles, CO 160 (180, 200, 220, 240, 260, 280, 300, 320) sts. Place marker (pm) for BOR and join to work in the rnd, being careful not to twist sts.

Next rnd dec rnd: K3 (4, 0, 4, 1, 8, 6, 4, 2), k2tog, [k13 (12, 12, 11, 11, 10, 10, 10, 10), k2tog] 5strong text**

(6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)] times, pm for side; rep from * one more time to end (BOR m also counts as
** rst side m) [12 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28) sts decreased]—148 (166, 184, 202, 220, 238, 256, 274, 292) sts rem [74 (83, 92, 101, 110, 119, 128, 137, 146) sts for each front and back].**

The link gives me an error. Can you give us the name of the pattern?

Pattern removed


The numbers work out correctly. For the third size it’s:
Next rnd dec rnd: * k2tog, [k12, k2tog] 7 times, pm for side; rep from * one more time to end (BOR m also counts as rst side m) (16 sts decreased]—184sts rem

It might help to add markers in before the round to mark the repeats of 14sts. That way you’ll be sure to come out correctly at the end.
@MsGip1234 Would you please edit your second post to remove the pattern? We run into copyright problems if we post large portions of patterns here.

Many thanks!

Thanks Salmonmac and you are welcome as well!! So sorry about that !

Ok so with the pattern I am still confused . After decreasing should I end up with an even set of 14 stitches ? I don’t get that after decreasing - k2tog [k12, k2tog]. I’m doing something wrong g I think and not sure what it is cauase I end up with 6 stitches at the end

Love the pattern. Wonder what it would look like with a three quarter or full length sleeve? It might be a elegant looking evening sweater

Remember that the first k2tog is only knit once. the repeat I (k12, k2tog).
That’ll take 14sts and times 7 that’s 98sts. The initial k2tog takes 2 sts so the total for one side is 100 or 200 sts for front and back.
Since there are 16 decreases total that’s 184sts remaining.

It is a lovely looking top.

Hi can’t figure out how this all works, looking for help on the felted clogs, I’m very fustrated hope someone can please help. I’ve been for years and can’t believ how difficult and complicated this pattern it’s FIBER TRENDS. They look beautiful but wow!!!

Another question on the sweater I’m now wondering if I started this pattern at the wrong place

I started where the wording Says "begin rib border; was this incorrect. I am asking because the pattern is now saying now do the neck bind off and I am very confused - I think totally did this wrong - see below

Body With circular needles, CO 160 (180, 200, 220, 240, 260, 280, 300, 320) sts. Place marker (pm) for BOR and join to work in the rnd, being careful not to twist sts. Repeat these 4 rows 3 more times—92 (101, 110, 119, 128, 137, 146, 155, 164) sts on needle.

Work even as est until pc meas 6½ ( 7, 7½, 7¾, 8, 8¼, 8½, 8¾, 9)” from separation for front and back, end after a WS row.

*begin rib border First rnd: *K1, p1; rep from * around. Work in rib as est until pc meas 2”.

Next rnd dec rnd: K3 (4, 0, 4, 1, 8, 6, 4, 2), k2tog, [k13 (12, 12, 11, 11, 10, 10, 10, 10), k2tog] 5 (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)] times, pm for side; rep from * one more time to end (BOR m also counts as first side m) [12 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28) sts decreased]—148 (166, 184, 202, 220, 238, 256, 274, 292) sts rem [74 (83, 92, 101, 110, 119, 128, 137, 146) sts for each front and back].

Bind off for neck Next row: (RS) (K1, p1) over next 24 (28, 32, 34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54) sts , join a second ball of yarn, BO center 44 (45, 46, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56) sts knitwise, (p1, k1) over rem 24 (28, 32, 34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54) sts.

This is confusing. Is this the way the pattern reads without anything omitted? Don’t post any more of the pattern but if you could just indicate where you’ve omitted any instructions.

The directions to “Work even as est until pc meas…” sound like the armholes. There should be directions for the cast on, the rib, the lace pattern of the main body, the split for the front and back at the armholes and then the directions for separate front and back which are now worked back and forth. The only other rib seems to be at the top of the shoulder and possibly armholes.

The errata (linked on the Ravelry page) don’t help here. Since this is a paid pattern I’d try messaging the designer. Don’t rip anything out until you hear from the designer.

Ok thank you ! I’m sorry about posting to much of the pattern; I don’t want to cause issues on this site so, my apologies again.

I will definitely contact the designer like you said. And let you know

Oh and no I did not omit anything , I like the way you layed out how the pattern should read -or I should say your format is what I am more used too

Me, too. I’ll be interested in what the designer says.

Hi Salmonmac!

I figured out the problem.

When the pattern was saved to my kindle reader, the kindle program integrated the two columns on each page together causing the pattern to read incorrectly. I opened the original file from quince and co and saw the correct format and was able to save the correct format to my Dropbox. When it uploaded there it formatted correctly and I have been able to finally start body the of my sweater . Ya-hoo!

Excellent! I wondered if maybe the original file from the company had gotten corrupted but I didn’t think of the transfer to Kindle. Good work.
Have fun with the pattern. You’re off to a wonderful start.
