My first attempt at reading a pattern turned into a beautiful beanie…
impressed with my first attempt…I am now knitting my first jumper. I am not sure of some of the instructions though.
After shaping the armholes and at 51 stitches, it says:
Divide for back opening - 1st row - K28, turn, Cont on these 28sts
2nd row - K5, purl to end
What does divide for back opening mean…I am knitting the back
Why am I only knitting 28 of the 51 stitches that I have and what do I do with the remaining 23?
Does the “purl to end” mean that I am going all the way to the end or does the “Cont on these 28” mean that I don’t touch them?
I am so confused. Any assistance would be great.
