Newbie here. Have crocheted for years, now attempting to knit. Have completed a couple of basic projects now trying something a tad more complicated. A sweater from Big Needle Knits to Wear. It is the off-the-shoulder sweather shown on the cover.
I need help with the pattern. It says…Cast on 50 sts.
Row 1: p1, *k4, p4; rep from * to last 5 sts, k4, p1.
Row 2: k1, p4, *k4, p4; rep from * to last st, k1.
Continue for all sizes.
OK, I understand how to read a pattern, but here is my problem. The pattern appears as a stockinette stitch with 4 knits/4 purls per section.
When I get to the end of the first row, I end up with 8 knit stitches then 1 purl.
When I do subsequent rows, it doesn’t come out as stockinette but a jumbled mess of knit and purl stitches that do not line up.
I hope this makes sense…I need help
