Unable to decipher Aran Yoke Cardigan pattern by Patons

Can anyone give me advice on how to work these turning rows. It’s a free pattern available online from various websites but neither my mum nor I can work it out! Thanks.

rows … 83 (93-101-111-119-129) sts.
Sizes XL, XXL and XXXL only - Dec one st at each end of every
row until (107-115-117) sts rem.
All Sizes … 83 (93-101-107-115-117) sts.
Beg Turnings - When turning, bring yarn to front of work, slip
next st onto right hand needle, yarn back, slip st back onto left
hand needle, then turn and proceed as instructed,
this avoids holes in work.

The pattern uses short rows for shaping.

There are several ways to work these but the pattern is suggesting wrap & turn. Here’s a video that may help.

Once you turn, follow the directions for the next row.

Thank you very much for the video link. It is what we have been doing but seem to run out of stitches following the pattern.


I just looked at the numbers for the first size but there should be plenty of sts. In rows 5 and 9 you’re working across all sts.
On which row do you run out of sts?

I think the penny finally dropped. I worked thru the pattern this wkend and it all looks fine.

Thank you very much for the video links, it was so useful to watch the process b4 trying it myself.
