I’ve started knitting a baker boy style cap from a pattern in a magazine. It’s my first venture into cables. However I’m finding the instructions tricky to understand and wonder if someone might suggest what I should be doing.
The first 5 rows were knit rows and get you to a point where you have 72sts on the needle. It then says to continue in cable patt as foll:
1st row: (WS) K3, (p4, k5) 7 times, p4, k2
2nd row: P2, k4, (p2, inc in next st, p2, k4) 7 times, p2, inc in last st. 80sts.
3rd row: K4, (p4, k6) 7 times, p4, k2
4th row: P2, C4F, (p3, inc in next st, p2, C4F) 7 times, p3, inc in last st. 88sts.
5th row: K5, (p4, k7) 7 times, p4, k2
6th row: P2, k4 (p4, inc in next st, p2, k4) 7 times, p4, inc in last st. 96sts.
7th row: K6, (p4, k8) 7 times, p4, k2
8th row: P2, C4F, (p5, inc in next st, p2, C4F) 7 times, p5, inc in last st. 104sts.
So far so good. I followed that and it all seems ok. The instructions then say “Cont without further shaping in patt as set until work measures 14cm from beg, ending with a WS row.”
This is where I’m stuck - I don’t know what to do.
At first I thought I just had to go back to the beginning of the sequence, and just omit the increases, but how can I go back to what row 1 says, because that was for a row of 72 sts, not 104sts as I’ve ended up with?
Any advice would be appreciated.
