Hi I’m working on Capri, a top from the new Rowan magazine number 43. I’m working on the back section with 95 sts on the needles following an 8 row repeat pattern. [B]Once I worked 1-8 of the repeat it says:
Cont in patt., dec 1 st at each end of next and following 14th row. 91 sts (for my size).
Work 19 rows, ending with RS facing for next row.
Inc. 1 st at each end of next and foll 16th row, taking inc sts into patt. 95 sts.
Cont stright until back measures 34 cm, ending with RS facing for next row.[/B]
I know that “dec 1 st at each end” means that I k2tog in the beginning and end of the row. But does “and the following 14th row” mean I count the 1-8 I did before work row 9 with the two decreases then follow 5 rows of the pattern to 14 and decrease again? Then after I do that does the “Work 19 rows” mean I really work 19 rows from the pattern or do I keep counting from the 14th row where I left off?
I really need help as I am very confused! Thank you in advance.
