The instructions reads:
With smaller needles and MC,cast on 51 sts.
*1st row:(RS).K1.P1.K1. Rep from * to end of row.
Rep last 2 rows for Rib Pat once more.
Proceed as follows:
2nd and alt rows: Purl.
3rd row: K0.*K3.P1. Rep from *to last 3 sts. K3.
5th row: knit.
7th row: k1. *p1.k3. Rep from * to last 2 sts. P1. K1.
8th row: Purl.
Rep last 8 rows for Dot Pat until work from beg measures 6.5 ins, ending with RS facing for next row.
Shape armholes: Cast off 2 sts beg next 4 rows. 43 sts.
Cont even in pat until armhole measures 4.5 ins, ending with RS facing for next row.
Shape shoulders: Cast off 6 sts beg of next 2 rows, then 6 sts beg following 2 rows. Cast off rem 19 sts.
I’m going to shape armholes.
- How do I cast off 2sts (Should be the 1st 4 sts, right?)
Should I knit 2 sts together instead of knitting one
or should I do the following way:
Knit the first 2 stitches; insert left needle into stitch you knitted first, and pull it over the second stitch and completely off the needle. One stitch is now bound off.
- While following those more specific instructions, I should still follow the previous instructions, which repeats every 8 rows until shoulders are finished. Am I right?
I’m new to knitting. Thx for your help!
