I could really use a second set of eyes on [this pattern.] (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/eggzakly/knitted-blouse-no-454) It’s knit flat, starting at the bottom of the back, up over the shoulders and neck and down the front - sort of poncho-style. I’m getting confused by the pattern repetition starting at the blouse back (from where it says to change needles and start pattern).
First question is simple: do I hold the cable needle to the front or back?
As far as I can make out, the pattern repetition is as follows:
Row 1: (Cables) k8, sl4 sts to CN, k4, k4 from CN, rep. to end.
Rows 2-7: Stockinette
Row 8: (Cables) sl4 sts to CN, k4, k4 from CN, k8, rep. to end.
Rows 9-14: Stockinette
- while adding sts at the sides for the sleeves in stockinette.
Have I got this right?
It then says to repeat from double star of first row to double star for yoke - but I’m just not seeing this second double star! How far do I work in the repeat? Do I work it all the way until it says “now discontinue the pattern stitch” in the second column of the directions?
I am also not exactly clear on how I lap the two edges of the right and left front, but I think I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it
Thank you so much for the help!
