I asked about the patternFenceawhile back and some of you tried to help me (thank you), but I am still confused. I do understand a little better, but what is [U]still confusing [/U]me is the instructions for the neck. It seems like the more I read them the more confused I get. The pattern instructions say:
Split for Neck (RS): Work 6 (7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15) sts, rejoin new yarn, BO 23 (25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37) sts, work 6 (7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15)
Then it gives instructions for all sizes --there are parenthesis giving different numbers—regarding the Left Neck, Right Neck, and Front Neck. THEN, farther down it does different sections for different sizes and has instructions with the same headings (split for neck, right neck, left neck, front neck) . I would say that this is just repeating the same instructions, except that there is a difference in the RIGHT NECK instructions that seem to cover all sizes and the ones specific to the size 36 which I will be knitting. Here are the instructions that seem to cover all sizes:
[U]Right Neck [/U]
[I]Row 1 (WS): Purl
Row 2 (RS): Knit
Row 3 (WS): BO 3 (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) sts, p3 (3, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5)
Work even in st st until piece measure 1½” from Back Neck edge. Place rem sts on stitch holder or safety pin.[/I]
Here are the instructions specific to the size 36:
[I]Row 1 (and all WS rows): P
Row 2: BO 4 (4, 5) sts, work to end of row .
Work evenly for 2 rows.
Rows 5, 9, 15 (Dec Row): Ssk, work to end of row.[/I]
:wall: Please, please help me. I have tried copying and pasting this pattern to MS Word to rearrange it so I can understand, but I keep hanging up on what seems to be repeating instructions. But even though it seems they are repeating, they are different. :wall:
Thank you for your patience.
