I’m working on Lionbrand’s Short and Chic Cardi.
The skill level is experienced, which from what I’ve read in the comments/ project notes is because the pattern is written poorly. I just finished the lower band. I’m about to start the body but I don’t understand the wording of the instructions.
With smaller circular needle, cast on 98 (102, 106, 110) sts.
Rows 1 and 3 (RS): K2, *p2, k2; rep from * across. Row 2: P2, *k2, p2; rep from * across.
Row 4: Rep Row 2 to last 7 sts, bind off next 3 sts (buttonhole), work to end of row as established. Row 5: Continue in rib as established, casting on 3 sts over bound off sts of previous row.
Rows 6-17 (6-19, 6-19, 6-19): Rep Rows 1 and 2. Rows 18-19 (20-21, 20-21, 20-21): Rep Rows 4 and 5.
For all sizes, work 2 more rows in rib as established. Bind off, but do not cut yarn.
From WS, using attached yarn and larger circular needle, pick up and k sts as follows:
Pick up and k 1 st in next p ridge, *pick up and k 1 st between next k sts of rib, pick up and k 1 sts in each of p sts of rib; rep from * across – 74 (77, 80, 83) sts."
I searched the website and though the post I found is the same question, I still don’t understand.
