I’m starting with the sleeves and after 5 rows I’m stumped.
The bolded numbers are what I have to use to get a 46" chest. (It’s for my hubby) Here’s the instructions…
Begin with 42 sts. Note: Work all inc in pat. Beg chart at st 1 ([B]10[/B],10,9) work to st 10, rep chart from 1-10 across for pat, ending with st 10 ([B]1[/B],1,2).
The chart is as follows: p 5 k 5, repeat to end of row. Next row: k5 p5 repeat to end of row. After 6 rows I’m to switch the pattern so I get these nice little boxes of knit and purl. I’m to do this for 18 rows.
I’m fine with the chart, but what I’m doing is this: I knit for the first 9 sts, then start the pattern on st 10 as it tells me too and I repeated the st pattern as far as I could go, but instead of ending with st 1, I’m left with 3 sts at the end of the row.
What am I doing wrong? I thank you in advance for your help.
