I’m trying to knit a pair of baby pants and got confused about the instructions.
The pants are knitted from the legs up. The legs are knitted separately and the stitches are put on 1 needle. Then cast on new stitches for the crotch…[B]How to cast on in the middle of the needle?
Then the back instruction is given as follows:
“Divide the work in the middle of the legs and work over the back sts. While doing so rest in every 2nd rnd 3 x 3 sts, in doing so work shortened rnds. Then cont working again over all sts in rnds k1 p1 alternatingly, while Ktog the YOs of the shortened rows”
Those are the exact words. It sounds like I’m supposed to knit the back with short rows but when do I turn? How many stitches are in the short row? Not sure what they meant by “middle of the legs” either…
Thanks in advance!
