Slouchy Cardi knit leaflet 603 by Panda


#1

Hi I need some advice on this cardigan pattern that I am trying to knit .I had trouble understanding the pattern with area on shape for back neck . It said
Cast off 4 sts, k7 incl st rem on left-hand needle after casting off, Cast off next 7 sts, knit to end. Cont. on last 11 sts for left side of back neck. Please, can someone tell me, do I knit all these in the same row??
Next row - Cast off 4 sts, purl to last 2 sts, P2tog.
Cast off rem 6 sts. (Which one?)
With wrong side facing, join yarn to rem 7 sts for right side of back neck. Work one row. (knit or purl??) Cast off rem 6 sts. Please help me understand.
I am knitting this in size small.
Thank you very much

“Cast off 4 sts, k7 incl st rem on left-hand needle after casting off, Cast off next 7 sts, knit to end. Cont. on last 11 sts for left side of back neck.” Yes, this is all worked across one row.
(The pattern should say to K7 incl st rem on right-hand needle after casting off.) For the following directions you’ll be ignoring the 7sts between the cast off gaps. You’ll get to them later.

You end the row with knit the remaining sts (looks like 11sts in this section), turn to the purl side and follow the Next row directions on the same sts that you have just knit. Now turn to the knit side and cast off the remaining sts in this same section, the left side of the back neck.

When you reconnect yarn to the 7sts that have been waiting on the needle, you’ll have the WS (wrong side) facing so purl the sts.

Hi. I need to asked again regarding the pattern on slouchy cardigan 603 by Panda. I did get all the part that you had explained. There is these part which I am still confused. It’s said
Next row- P2tog, purl to end. Work one row. Cast off rem 6 sts. My question is does work one row mean P2tog, purl to end then I turn my work and knit one row. Cast off the rem 6 sts in purl row. I am loss. Please help. Thank you

Row 1 P2tog, purl to end.
Row 2 Knit across the row.
Row 3 Cast off remaining 6sts.

So row 2 is just knit across the row without any decrease.

Hi. Thank you. It make sense now.

Hi please help me understand this slouchy pattern again . I had 20 sts on the needle at he moment. It is so confused the way they wrote this pattern. Here it is
Shape Front Slope
Dec one st at end of next row, sizes S,M,L and XL only-then in foll ( 16th -16th-12th-12th) row once.
I got all these part.
Shape Armholes-
Inc one st at beg of next row, then every foll 6th row 5 times, AT THE SAME TIME dec one st at front edge in (16th row) from previous dec (2-2-3-3) times…(22-24-26–28) sts
What I got confused is where the pattern said on Shape Armholes. Does the (22-24-26-28) sts meaning it’s include one st inc at beg of next row for Shape Armholes
Thank you so much for helping

Dec one st at end of next row, (call this row 1) sizes S,M,L and XL only-then in foll ( 16th -16th-12th-12th) row once (this is row 17) 2sts dec
Shape Armholes-
Inc one st at beg of next row (row 18), then every foll 6th row 5 times, (rows 18,24,30,36r,42,48) 6sts inc

AT THE SAME TIME dec one st at front edge in (16th row) from previous dec (2-2-3-3) times…(rows 33 and 49) 2sts dec
(22-24-26–28) sts

So 20sts +6 -4=22sts. Does that make sense with your stitch count?

Hi. Thanks for the instructions, it was very good. There was one part that I do not really understand. Pleasr advise me again . Here it is
At the same time dec one st at front edge in 16th row from previous dec (2-2-3-3) times (row 33 and 49) 2 sts dec (22-24-26-28) sts. So 20 sts +6-4=22 sts.
What I am confused was if I made inc one st at front/beg edge in (16th row) , the next row will be on the (32 row) and (48 row) instead of (row 33 and 49) as what you had written
Please guide me. Thank you

"Dec one st at end of next row (I was calling this row 1) , sizes S,M,L and XL only-then in foll ( 16th -16th-12th-12th) row once (This would be row 17).
Shape Armholes-
Inc one st at beg of next row, then every foll 6th row 5 times, AT THE SAME TIME dec one st at front edge in (16th row) from previous dec (2-2-3-3) times (rows 33 and 49)

So the 16th row from the last dec would be row 33 but if you want to call that initial dec row, row 0 and count from there (16, 32, 48) that’s fine too. That’ll work!

Hi
Thank you so much for your direction. It does made sense now.
I had just finished the slouchy cardi back . It looks weird ! Do not even looks close to picture. I might have misread around shape armholes for back from start. Please advise me.
Inc one st at each end of next row then in every foll 6th row until there are 53 sts . Work 5 rows.
Does this mean (row 1), inc one st at end only and then on (row 7) inc one st end and so on until I had 53 sts .

Increase at each end means to increase at the beginning of the row and at the end of the row. There will be 2 sts increased every time you work an increase row.
This is often a source of error but you’re almost there!
