Hi. I’m fairly new to knitting - absolutely loving it and have found a new passion for life!
However… I am attempting to make the Yarnspirations Sugar Bush without a paddle sweater and have unpicked my work so many times now! I might be being ambitious as its an intermediate level but ambitious is definitely me!!!
I need help with the short row instructions as no amount of research and video watching has resolved what I need to do! I’ve learnt about japanese, german, wrap and turn short row methods but none of them match what the pattern is telling me to do…
It’s a bottom up in the round pattern. I’m making the smallest size with 136 stitches CO and have got to the shape front section. The pattern says
Shape Front: Next row: (RS). K85 Sl1P. Turn.
Next row: Sl1P. P102. Sl1. Turn.
Next row: Sl1. K97 Sl1P. Turn.
Next row: Sl1. P92 . Sl1. Turn.
Next row: Sl1. K87 Sl1P. Turn.
Next row: Sl1. P82 Sl1. Turn.
Next row: Sl1. K7 ( (you are at marked st).
I cant get my head round why you would slip purl and knit differently at the end of each row and how this is done in reality as it seems I’m just moving the stitch backwards and forwards after turning my work. Whatver I am doing (and I’ve tried various methods) doesnt take me back to the beginning marker - although I’ve counted the instructions out and they are obviously decreasing the stiches in each short row by 5 stitches each time which I would expect and should take me back to the beginning marker.
Any ideas anyone? thanks
