I am really new for knitting. Currently I am working on knitting a striped Cardigan on straight needle start from bottom to top. And now I’m struggling on some terminology in the pattern as listed below.
× k2,p2 rip (for edges)
× stocking stitches (throughout the rest of the work)
- On ‘Back’, what does the following instructions mean ?
" On each edge: on foll 20th rows, cast off 1 st once and on foll 18th rows, cast off 1 st 3 times "
My understanding is knitting to 20th row cast off 1 st on both edges -> start counting next row as 1st and work till 17th rows -> on 18th row cast off 1 st on both edges and repeat “**” twice more.
- On ‘Sholders’
" On each edge, cast off; 5 sts 3 times and 6 sts once"
My understanding is row 1- 3 cast of 5 sts on both edges and row 4 cast off 6 sts.
Thank you very much for your help and I do really appreciate.
