I am currently working on the 12 line pattern for the back. I don’t understand the first set of even lines (2,4,6).
[I]Rows 2, 4 and 6: (front) lift the thread you carried across the first of the 2 stitches you lifted off onto the left needle and, including this thread knit 1 in the back of the stitch then lift the thread you carried across on to the needle again and including this thread knit one normally, purl 2, repeat to end[/I]
The last 2 stitches of 1 were slipped, so the yarn starts off behind the work and 2 stitches from the end, so I read this as bring the yarn over the front and knit into the back of the loop?
Then I don’t understand the increasing during the body. Doesn’t that throw off the pattern if I am adding 1 stitch every 4cm? And where does the 162 come from?
All help will be appreciated.
