Hi - I’m working on a sweater that has stocking stitch on both ends and a cable pattern in the middle. I’m at a point in the pattern where I have increased one stich on the second stitch of the knit row and cast off stitches at the beginning of the purl row. There are two instructions that i’m not sure about and would greatly appreciate help.
- when casting off, it says “slipping first st tightly”. Does this just mean when i am putting the yarn over for the first cast off to make sure it is pulled as tightly as possible?
- The pattern then says "repeat these last 2 rows 3 times, taking inc sts into St st at beg of rows. What does this mean?
Thank you! Diana
