I have started knitting the Long Jacket found in Plus Size Knits by Phildar. After increase instructions, the pattern has notations that I don’t understand. A local knitting shop said it is probably more information than I need, but I’d like to understand anyway.
Here is an example: I’ll bold the part that confuses me.
At 27 1/4 [27 1/2, 28, 28 1/4, 28 3/4] in. up the sides, form the shoulders by binding off on each side every 2 rows: 2x9 sts and 2x10 st.[3x10 sts and 1x11sts; 4x12 sts; 2x13 sts and 2x14 sts; 3x15 sts and 1x16 sts.]
Thank you for any help you can offer.
