Need help reading a pattern please :)

Recently started knitting a jacket in king cole aran, the pattern number is 3293. Was doing ok in it until i met this line,

     "Cont in rib with cable patt front band until work is 32 rows 
      shorter than back to beg of armholes, ending with a wrong 
      side row"

Not sure if this means 32 rows shorter than the back or 32 rows shorter than the armholes. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciate :slight_smile: Thank you!

Sounds like 32 rows shorter than length to armholes. So if you’re knitting from the bottom up, you would be somewhere in the main body of the sweater before the armhole bind off. What is it that you are supposed to do at this point?

After this i’m suppose to shape the front slope and then its on to the shaping the armholes.

OK, looking at the pattern that seems about right. The front border starts to slope in below the armholes. Very good looking sweater!

Thank you for your help :slight_smile:
