I have read through some of the past posts on reverse shaping but I’m still confused. :wall:
I am knitting Sally Melville’s Not Your Mother’s Suit Coat and have completed the back and front left. However the instructions for the front right are to work as with front left but to reverse shape.
Here’s where I’m at, the instructions for the front left are to cast on 35 stitches and work straight for 6 rows (ie stockinette stitch). The next decrease (rs) row you are to k1, work left slanting decrease, k to end then work 5 rows straight. These 6 rows are repeated 5 times. For the front right would I cast on, work 5 rows straight then do the left slanting decreases on the wrong side of the piece. Or would I work 6 rows straight then do a right slanting decrease on the right side of the work?
I really hope that makes sense but I want to get this right and I’ve never done reverse shaping before. I will deal with the arm and shoulder shaping once I get there but unfortunately I’ve got to get past this hurdle first.
Thanks in advance.
