I’m working on a pattern for a baby snuggle (all in one type outfit). Last night I finished the left front…let me tell you, it was a year and a half in the making, so this was quite the accomplishment. I’m ready to cast on for the right front and the directions say :
Work as given for the Left Front, reversing all shaping (an easy way to do this is to follow pattern for Left Front but read p for k, and k for p), and ignoring motif.
So…here are the beginning rows as described for the Left Front :
Start at foot. With 3 1/2mm (US5) needles and M (main colour yarn), cast on 11 sts. this part I understand
1st row : knit
2nd row : cast on 3 sts, p to end (14 sts)
So, if I’m to be reversing the shaping as instructed, do I purl row 1, then for row 2, cast on 3 sts and knit to the end? And then continue in this manner for the rest of the rows until I’m all done?
And if this is the case, much of the arm shaping is done by casting on 2 stitches at the beginning of all knit rows for a specified number of rows. Would I then, cast on the 2 stitches on purl rows? How does one cast on to a purl row? I only know how to do a knitted cast on when adding stitches to a work in progress.
