I’m new here, and this is my first post. I’m a Kiwi, and I’ve just bought a new pattern that is American. It’s a little different, and I haven’t seen a pattern set out like this before.
So, this is the first part I am stuck on.
"[I]Body (Ribbed rectangle): CO 82 sts. Row 1(RS): p1, * k3, p2, k3, p1* Rows 2+: K knit sts, p purl sts. BO after 280(315, 350, 385, 420) rows, approx. 42 (47, 52, 58, 63)[/I]”.
(Notice my confusion begins immediately after the casting-on bit!..lol. This does not bode well for the rest of the pattern.)
So, I understand it up until it says “Rows 2+: K knit sts, p purl sts”
What I did was cast on 82 stitches. Then I did “p1, k3, p2, k3, p1” once. I would then expect to see something like, “Repeat from * to * to the last stitch. P1.” Then it would instruct me to begin row 2, etc, etc. However, instead, it gives me the whole “Rows 2+” scenario.
Oops, I went to post the link to the pattern, but it seems that’s breaking the rules as this is only my first post.
You can google it, if you’d like to. It’s called the “Rib’N Shrug” and if you put that in google along with “tangram knits” you’ll see it. The grey one.
I really appreciate your help. Thanks so much.
