HI, I’m trying my hand at knitting something beyond a straight scarf. Found a nice pattern for a baby bib. I don’t know how to follow the pattern. Could someone explain step by step?:
the pattern doesn’t have a glossary or key, so i’m unsure about the abbreviations.
[B][U]Could someone translate and explain for me?[/U][/B]
"This bib…worked in “segments.” Decreases are worked at the edges of each segment, bringing each one to a point.
Using Long-Tail CO, CO 86 (100) sts [I][this i understand][/I]
[B]Decrease Row 1 (RS):[/B] K1, [k2tog, k8 (10) sts, ssk, pm] 7 times, k1—72 (86) sts remain. Knit 5 rows.
[B]Decrease Row 2 (RS)[/B]: Change to St st. Decrease 14 sts this row, then every 4 rows 3 (4) times, as follows: K1, [k2tog, knit to 2 sts before marker, ssk, sm] 7 times, k1—16 sts remain. Work even for 3 rows, removing markers.
[B]Decrease Row 3 (RS):[/B] K1, [k2tog] 7 times, k1—9 sts remain. Work even for 1 row.
[B]Decrease Row 4 (RS)[/B]: [K3tog] 3 times—3 sts remain. BO all sts.
