Hi all. I’m confused about the instructions for the square that the mini sweater is attached to.
…cast on 57 sts. [B]Work 3 ridges, inc 4 sts evenly along last (WS) row-61sts.[/B]
then you begin the center of the sq for 11"
[B]Work 3 ridges,dec 4 sts evenly across first row-57 sts.[/B] Bind off.
The areas in bold are what I’m confused about.
What does she mean by work 3 ridges?
And does it matter where I increase on the last row? The first 3 to 4 and the last 3 to 4 stitches of each row make an edge design so I can’t increase there.
Also I’m going to be surrounding a number of assorted blocks with some aran sampler strips I’ve been knitting. I’ve been using a size 8 needle on the strips. The Rainey block calls for a smaller size 6 needle for the background block. I’m thinking I should stick with the size 8 to make the stitches look consistent. What do you think?
