I’m a relatively new self-taught knitter so this is probably a pretty basic question. I usually figure out most things myself by extensive googling and trial and error but I’ve just embarked on a jumper that’s for my sister’s birthday so I want to get it right and I don’t have loads of time to trial and error it!
I’m just starting the front panel and the instructions read:
(1x1 rib. Row 1: *K1, P1, rep from * to last st, K1.
Row 2: P1, *K1, P1, rep from * to end.)
Cast on 59 stitches and commencing with 2nd row of 1x1 rib work for 3cm, ending with a ws row.
So my questions:
Do I measure the 3cm from the very edge or from the start of the actual knitting? As in, do I include the cast on row in the 3cm?
Which is going to be the wrong side row in the rib? Is it a Row 2 which I’d usually think of as ws, or is it going to be a Row 1 as that’s the second row knitted in this case? If that makes sense? To me, the rs is when the cast on tail (basic cast on) is at the bottom of the left needle before starting the row but while trying to google the answers to my questions I am getting the feeling it’s not that simple!
Any help gratefully received!
