I am starting on my 9th project (still calling myself a Beginner - hoping that soon, I can call myself Intermediate :-)) as I learn to crack patterns more easily …
This is Geraldine top - for my daughter.
So confused with “work in pattern as established” despite reading several clarifications already done in this forum … any help would be greatly appreciated !
The pattern says
Provisional CO 37, place marker, CO 47, place marker, CO 37
Row 1 (WS) : k3, p1tbl, (k2,p1tbl) to 3 sts before end, k3 : This is clear to me
Row 2 (RS) : p3, k1tbl, (p2, k1tbl) to 3 sts before end, p3 : This is also clear to me
Short row 1 (WS) : work in pattern as established for 85 sts, wrap & turn
Question : when I work short row 1, in pattern, for 85 stitches -
does the 85 stitches cover all of Row 1 pattern, which is,
k3, p1tbl, (k2,p1tbl) to 3 sts, k3. OR
does it only cover
k3, p1tbl, (k2,p1tbl) (without the last 3 knits)
Short row 2 (RS) : work in pattern for 49 sts, wrap & turn : I can figure this out once I have the answer to the above
Short Row 3 (WS) : Work in pattern to last wrapped st, pick up wrap and knit it tog with its corresponding st, work 5 stitches, wrap & turn
Question : when I work Short Row 3,
after I “Work in pattern to last wrapped st, pick up wrap and knit it tog with its corresponding st”,
the work 5 stitches - what would that mean ?
Oh my ! This pattern appears to be a mathematical challenge !!
Thank you in advance
