Please can someone help me I do not have a clue how to complete the hooded cardigan I am knitting for my son. The pattern reads as follows; HOOD - Join shoulder seams. With rs facing starting at marker pick up and knit 20sts evenly along rs of front of neck ( this I understand), knit across 16sts left on stitch holder at back of neck as follows;K2 pick up loop between last and next st and work into the back of this loop ref m1 ( where do I k2 from? do I pick up loop from row below I am so confused ), k3,m1 4 times,k2, pick up and knit 20sts evenly along left side of front of neck end at marker.61sts.cont until hood measures 17cm ending with ws row.
Then even more confusing; Shape top; cast off 20sts,k20,cast off 20sts.with ws facing, rejoin yarn to rem 21sts and k to end. cont without shaping until hood measures 11cm from cast off sts.cast off. join side edges at top of hood to 20 cast off sts.
hood border; rs facing pick up and k34 evenly along rs of hood,19sts from 21sts cast off at top of hood and 34sts along left side of hood.work 4 rows cast off.
Please can someone explain this to me in a simple way.
