I am a little confused as to how to work this pattern. Up until this part, I have had no troubles so I am feeling a little helpless here right now.
This is how it goes…
CO 36 (39, 42, 45, 48, 51) sts.
Begin first row, knit across first row to last 3 sts.
Wrap next st, turn and work back.
Next row: Work to last 6 sts, wrap next st, turn and work back.
Continue in this manner, wrapping every third st until
12 (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19) sts have been wrapped.
AT THE SAME TIME, shape side:
Working in st st, work even for first 6 rows from beg.
Beginning with next row, inc 1 st at the beginning of every 4 rows;
continue to inc 1 st at the beginning of every 4 rows. When all sts
have been wrapped, work across row, picking up and knitting all
Work first 6 rows of neckline even. Next, dec 1 st every 4th row.
Continue to work side incs until 10 incs have been made, then work
even on side until piece measures 6½” from lowest (left-hand) corner.
BO 5 (6, 6, 6, 6, 6) sts at the beginning of next RS row. BO 4 sts at
the beginning of the foll RS row.
Dec 1 st at armhole side next 2 (4, 5, 6, 6, 6) rows.
Continue shaping neckline until there are 21 (21, 24, 24, 27, 30) sts
Work even until armhole measures 8” (8½”, 9”, 9½”, 9¾”, 10”).
There are instructions on how to do the wrapping and shaping with the short rows. What is confusing me right now is when and how do I do the shaping on both sides of the garment. If someone could walk me through this I would be very happy.
