Hi: I am knitting a woman’s shaker sweater with raglan sleeves -
my 1st project. I am having trouble understanding the pattern.
The sweater is knit bottom up, and front and back of the sweater are knitted the same (if I understand correctly).
Can you please explain the following instructions with a little more
detail? Thank you
Cast off 4 sts beg next 2 rows.
Next row (RS) K3, Sl1, K1, psso. pat to last 5 sts. K2tog, K3.
I understand the direction for the “next row,” but I don’t know what row to cast off the 4 sts.
The pattern then says work 3 rows even in pat. I know what this means, but then the pattern says to - rep last 4 rows 7 (4-1) times more. The last 4 rows would not be the same because the pattern says to work 3 rows even in pat.
