I would like to make this sweater www.knitty.com/issuespring04/pattbadpenny.html. It is knit in the round. Patterns says to [I]CO 140 sts[/I]. Then there are a few steps and then the have the following:
[I]Inc round 1: K all sts.
Inc round 2: K to 1 st before marker, yo slip marker, k1, yo
Repeat these 2 inc rounds 19 times more[/I]
It all makes sense until I get to the next step that tells me how many sts I have: [I]60 sts per sleeve and 90 sts per body half - 300 sts in total.[/I]
The way I figure it I have 180 sts: 140CO+(2inc x 20).
Where did the 60 sts per sleeve come from???
Also, near the end of the pattern it says to [I]inc 2 sts evenly around[/I]. Would I do this 1 st at the beginning of the row and 1 st at the end of the row and would I achieve the inc using a yo?
As it is knit from the top down, what type of CO would you recommend?
Thanks in advance for your help.
PS I forgot to tell you that I am a beginner knitter (if you hadn’t guessed that by now):shock:
