another dilemma on the teddy bear project has arisen…
after you knit the left side of the head and you bind off and all that jazz, the next bit to knit is the right side of its head. the first instruction on that is “Reverse shapings, work to match left side to **.” um, ya. how does that translate? for example, the very first instructions on the left side of the head say:
“Cast on 12 sts. Beg with a k row, work 4 rows St st.
5th row:(RS) Inc in first st, k to end. 13 sts. Purl 1 row.”
If you reverse shapings what does that translate to on these instructions? I’m rather new to using patterns… I’m sort of one of those people who just knits scarves a lot…
Thanks a ton for even reading it!
Ps. If you are feeling very ambitious please answer this other question as well… While knitting the top of the bear’s head (a separate entity unto itself) it says:
“Dec Row: K1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, sl1-k1-psso, k1. 12 sts.
Dec in this way at each end of 2 foll 4th rows and next 2 RS rows. 4 sts.”
I’m okay until I hit the second part of the instruction involving repeating the sequence. I can’t seem to decode it… Any suggestions would be more than welcome.
Thanks for getting me out of several tight spots! :doh:
