Ok, So I thought I would try a bigger project and settled on this jumping sun pattern that I found on Ravelry for my girls. I’ve progressed OK so far but am somewhat confuddled with the next instructions. The area in question is as follows: (I am including the first bit for clarity, but it’s the part in red that I’m unsure about.)
[I]Round 1: After knitting all 12 triangles, join to work in the round being careful not to twist stitches. Place a stitch marker
at the beginning of round and increase 9 stitches as follows: *knit 20, M1, repeat from * until the end of the round (189
sts). Place a second marker after 94 sts to indicate the side “seam”. The front has 94 sts and the back has 95 sts. The
increases are made because there are gauge differences between garter stitch and Stockinette stitch.
Rounds 2-7: knit
Shaping the sides:
Next round (decrease round): k 1, k 2 tog, k 88 (front), ssk, k 1, SM, k 1, k 2 tog, k 89 (back), ssk, k 1
Repeat these decreases as follows:
[COLOR=“Red”]1x every 15. rnd
3x every 7. rnd (the beginning of the pocket is right after these decreases, see below)
5x every 5. rnd (during the last of these decrease rounds, k 2 tog in the middle of the back, so there are same amount of
stitches at the front and back)
and 4x every 2. rnd (it’s possible that every 3. rnd could look better)[/COLOR][/I]
Does it mean to decrease 3 stitches every 7 rounds? or 3 stitches every round for 7 rounds? My confuddlement stems from the previous decrease which only has the k 2 tog and the ssk, for the front and the back.
The whole pattern is here on Ravelry
Thanks in advance.
