I need some advise on the below pattern.
The pattern states to CO 10 sts, then knit 4 rows [B]even[/B]…i’ve done this, but the work I did, looks nothing like the picture; am I missing something? Does this mean to turn the work in order to get the smooth edge? The cables I’ve done, look fine, it is just at the start. Here is the actual pattern and a link to the picture:
c6f: Slip 3 sts to cable holder & hold in front of work, k3, k3 from cable holder
c6b: Slip 3 sts to cable holder & hold in back of work, k3, k3 from cable holder
Section (make 7):
[B]Cast On 10 sts. Knit 4 rows even[/B]
Row 5: (right side) k1, inc 1, work to last 2 sts, inc 1, k1. 12 sts
Row 6: knit.
Rows 7 and 8: Repeat rows 5 and 6. 14 sts
Row 9: Row 5
Row 10 and all even rows: Purl
Repeat rows 9 and 10 until there are 36 sts, ending with purl row.
Knit 2 rows
Next row: Row 5
Next row: knit
