Hi my names Marie i started knitging about three/four years ago and am getting better with each pattern i try but this section has me really confused. 'm working on a toy and am at the section where it says shape the back of the head. Please note pattern started at the nose.
I have 45 stitches on my needle at this part of the pattern.
My question is two fold
- When it says sl1, p to last 2, turn
Then sl1, k to last 4sts
Then sl1, p to last 4sts
Then it says cont in this way working 2 less on every row ‘sl1, p to last 16 sts’, turn has been worked
Please help how does slipping 1 stich reduce 2 on each row. Am i suppose to slip the slipped stitch over the next k/p one. And where does the second stitch each row get reduced/slipped decreased.
- Then the next part says
Sl1, k to last 2sts, inc 1 in next st, k1, 46 sts
Utterly confused here how many stitches would i have left on previous section to now have 46 stitches on this row.do i end previous section with 16 sts total. And if so how do i get to 46 from 16 sts in one row??
Please could anyome guide me through what this means. Its a toy from my childhood and would love to be able to get this section finished.
And in advance thanks for any help getting me theough this confusing set of instructions.
