I have knitted several projects, but none of them have been very complicated, mostly just knitting, purling, using two strands of yarn, etc. I got a pattern for a shawl collar jacket for my husband and am completely lost. The back beings with a rib for 17 rows. Then as follows:
[I][FONT=“Georgia”]Row 18 (WS): Rib 2, M1, Rib 8, M1 eleven times, rib to end. 104 sts.[/FONT][/I]
I understand the make one and have the instructions to learn how to do this, but the rib 2 and rib 8 completely escapes me.
The rib instructions for Rows 1-17 are as follows:
[FONT=“Georgia”][I]Row 1 (RS): P2, *K3, P2; rep from * to end.
Row 2: K2, *P3, K2; rep from * to end.
These 2 rows form rib.
Work in rib for 15 rows more, ending with WS facing for next row.[/I][/FONT]
I have tried to work this out on paper to come up with 104 stitches, but can’t seem to get the right number.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
