I have downloaded a “toddlers knitted hooded jacket pattern” from a “French” site. I now can not access this site again.
I am up to knitting the hood. [FONT=“Arial Black”]The pattern says “with 5mm needles, cast on 92 sts & work in garter st. In total 3 cm in ht, decrease on each side, 1 st all 8 rows (6 more time) Continue until 20cm in ht. Bind off 80 stitches”.
Gauge is 17st & 30 rows to 10cm square, in garter stitich on 5mm needles.[/FONT]
Has something being lost in translation from French to English?
Do I knit in garter stitch until work measures 3cm, then decrease at each side 1 stitch for the next 6 or 8 rows? (6 rows will remove 12 stitches!).
Do I start decreasing from the first row? as decreasing each side for 6 rows will give me b a height of nearly 3 cm.
Is all 8 rows a mistake?
I am knitting for my first grandchild and haven’t knit for about 30yrs.
