Thank you that did help. However I did not have the pattern in front of me when I asked the question. For the neck band it way join shoulder seams, pick up and knit 18 stitches evenly along right side of neck 19 stitches from back of
neck and 18 stitches along left side of neck total 55 stitches work 2 rows in g-st cast off knitways. So do I join the shoulder on both sides and then pick up and knit. It is a little confusing to me and not sure how to do it.

Thank You,

In my opinion as it says join shoulder seams, then yes you should join both shoulder seams then pick up and knit

OK so here is another question. I have not done cable knit before. Attempting a hat and sweater. Hat first. In the pattern that I have attached is says Rib 1 (3:3:6:6) I know the brackets are for a different size. So would I do a rib
1 3 time or 6 times if making a bigger size? Then ml rib 5 11 or (again brackets for different sizes) times. It just is not making sense to me.

Thank You,

After the ribbing, for the smallest size, Rib 1 then repeat (m1, rib 5) 11 times.
For the 3rd size, Rib 3, then repeat (m1, rib 5) 12 times.
Then the pattern continues with more increases.
In each case follow the number for your size. It may help to circle or underline the numbers for your size.
Usually these directions are to help you distribute the increases.

So what is a rib 5? How do I know what a rib 3 or rib 5 mean? I do not see anything to say what a rib 1, 3, 5, or 4 mean. I just am having a hard time understanding what it means. I know for different sizes you go by what it is. Is there
a good video out there that would help explain the different rib numbers.?

Thank You,

Sally

Rib some number of sts means to continue the rib pattern you’ve already established in previous rows. So if it’s k1, p1 rib for example, rib 3 is k1,p1,k1. Rib 5 is k1,p1,k1,p1,k1. Then you would work the make 1 increase.
