Hi All! I’m new here so please be gentle with me.
I’m knitting the Bahia Tie Front Cardigan from the April 2010 issue of Knit N’ Style magazine. First off, I found a few errors in the pattern, which had me going crazy until I found them.
I’ve kntted the back and the left front panel of the pattern with no real problems – other than the aforementioned mistakes in the pattern. But now, I’m seriously about to pull out every hair on my head. I thought I understood what it meant to “reverse the pattern placement” but when I do the pattern in reverse the right front panel is not the mirror image of the left front panel as it should be. Here’s the Left Front panel instructions for Row 1 and Row 2:
Row 1 (RS): K1, K2, K3, K2tog, YO, K1-TBL, YO, SSK, K3, P1, K1, K2tog, K2, YO, K1-TBL, YO, K2, SSK, K1, P1, K3, K2tog, YO, K1-TBL, YO, SSK, K3, P1; work 9 stitches of front band in 1x1 rib
Row 2 (WS): work 9 stitches of 1x1 rib; K1, P4, P1-TBL, P1, P1-TBL, P4, K1 (3x)
So, if I were to reverse these rows, would I do the following:
Row 1: Work 9 1x1 rib stitches; P1, K3, SSK, YO, K1-TBL, YO, K2tog, K3, P1, K1, SSK, K2, YO, K1-TBL, YO, Ks, K2tog, K1, P1, K3, SSK, YO, K1-TBL, YO, K2tog, K3, K2, k1
Row, 2: K1, P4, P1-TBL, P1, P1-TBL, P4, K1 (3x)l work 9 stitches of 1x1 rib
I’ve tried that and it just doesn’t look quite right. Any ideas? Before I go bald?
