Can someone pls assist me in getting started with this sweater (my first) I purchased the pattern on line and think I’ll be ok if I can get going!
While Knitting circularly:
Round 1: knit 3 purl 1
Round 2: knit
Repeat these two rounds
with straight needles:
Row 1: knit 1, purl 3 (wrong side)
Row 2: Knit (right side)
With #7 circular needle cast on 77 stitches (for a Large). Begin working back and forth.
Row 1 work one wrong side row even, end K1.
My question what does “work one wrong side row even” mean?
Row 2 Set up "seams: as follows:
Increase into first stitch by knitting into the front and back of that stitch. M1, place marker, k3, palce marker, M1, k37, M1, place marker, k3, place marker, M1, k13, M1, place marker, k3, place marker, M1. Increase into last stitch.
As you increase along the raglan sleeve seam lines, you will keep a three stitch wide column of stocking stitch between your pairs of increases. Stitch pattern repeats within each section (sleeves, back, front) are centered. Incorporate increases into the est pattern . 87 stitches
Row 3 Pattern stitch row 1 , inc increase into pattern
P1, k2, p3 (seam), k2 p3,k1 3 times, k1, p3 (seam), k2, p3,k1 9 times, k1,p3 (seam), k2, p3,k1 3 times , k1, p3 (seam), k2, p1
Row 4 K1, M1, K to before marker. M1, slip marker, k3, slip marker,
M1, k to before next marker, M1, slip marker k3, slip marker, M1, knit to before next marker, M1, slip marker, k3, slip marker, M1,k to before next marker, M1, sip marker, k3, slip marker, M1 k to last stitch, M1, k1
Row 5 Wrok pattern stitich row 1, inc new stitches into pattern as est.
Repeat rows 4 and 5 until piece measures 2.5 inches from beginning and you have worked a totla of 9 sets of increases, ending after a right side row 167 stitches
If I stitch with the circular needles, are there any adjustments I need to make? or just follow the pattern.
I guess I can watch a video to learn how to increase the first stitch by knitting into the front and back of that stitch?
the same for increasing …I can watch a video on this site.
what does slip marker mean? skip it?
