So I started knitting a couple of weeks ago and started out with quite a hard pattern for a dog jumper… I’m a bit confused about how the pattern has been written, if someone could explain that would be awesome thanks!
So I have knitted the beginning neck bit and then increased stitches into the back part. Its a P2.K2. pattern to make the ribbing. There are 4 rows which establish the pattern including chart rows in the middle. Then at the end of these four rows its states:
"Cont in pat as established, keeping cont of Chart, inc 1 st at each end of needle on next 5 rows, then following alt rows 15 times, take incr sts into pat and ending with the RS facing for next row. "
I took this to mean, go back to the top and repeat those 4 rows with the appropriate row in the chart. I’ve struggled to keep track of numbers of stitches so I have started using markers. But the pattern still doesn’t look like anything so Im wondering if I should have just been P2.K2 as I could see in the pattern, incorporating the inc stitches instead of repeating those 4 rows? The third row of those 4 rows includes a C2B.P2 stitch though which I wouldn’t know where to place without those 4 rows?
