I’ve been working on this shrug from Debbie Bliss’ Junior Knits ([I]Molly[/I] is the pattern). I did the back, front and sleeves, then had to pick up stitches along the front edging and collar for a ribbed edge, which I did.
Here’s how the pattern reads for the ribbing:
1st row[/B] (wrong side) P2, * k2, p2; rep from * to end.
Working in rib as set, cont as follows:
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 86 sts, turn.
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 82 sts, turn.
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 78 sts, turn.
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 74 sts, turn.
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 69 sts, turn.
[B]Next 2 rows[/B] Rib to last 64 sts, turn.
[B]Next row[/B] Rib to end.
Work a further 7 rows in rib.
Bind off in rib.
So… I’m now working the 7 last rows of rib, but my work looks really weird and I’m wondering if I read this pattern right. One side of my work is much thicker than the other side, because I turned and went back before I got to the end of each row. I must have misunderstood the pattern. Was I not supposed to turn, then rib my way back to the beginning? I will try to post a picture…
you can see the left side is thicker than what’s on the right
Here is what it looks like laid out as a shrug and the side on the left is so thick! I still have four more rows of rib to do along the whole edge:
So, can anyone please tell me what I did wrong and how I need to re-do it so I don’t make the same mistake? Thank you so much; any input would be appreciated!
