I just finished frogging my entire work on this shrug because I got confused reading the pattern.
Here’s where I got confused and started to make mistakes:
"*[B]Inc Row 1[/B]: K3, yo, work in patt as established to last 3 sts, yo, k3.
[B]Inc Row 2[/B]: K3, yo, k1, work in patt as estbalished to last 4 sts, yo, k4 – 48 (50, 52) sts.
Work 12 rows even.
Rep from * 3 times more, then work Inc Rows 1 and 2 once more – 64 (66, 69) sts."
My confusion is multiple: on the first increase row, are they saying to knit 3, yarn over, then following the established pattern, yarn over again and knit 2 together to last 3 sts, then yo, knit 3?
After working 12 rows even, are they suggesting to work the two row increases 3 more times, then once more? Or are they suggesting to work the pattern stitch 3 more times, then work the increase rows once more? The first go-round I read it to do the increase rows 4 times, which didn’t give me the correct amount of stitches, which is why I decided to frog the whole thing and start over.
Pattern reading is an art, apparently.
