I am knitting a lace matinee set. I have followed the pattern instructions for the left front and now I have instructions for the back which are as below:
Rejoin yarn to WS and work in patt from row 2 as for left front, from * 12 times, omitting the garter sts at each end.
Row 2 (wS): k4,p1, *p1,p2tog tbl,yo,p1,yo,p2tog,p1; rep from * 5 times. Turn, and work on these 40 sts
Etc to row 8
I don’t understand how the back works. Could someone explain in simpl words? I have the left front sts on a stitch holder and the other part on my needle. Does it want me to follow the pattern of the left front from row 2-8? What is meant by omitting garter st at each end?
