Hi, I am having trouble interpreting a pattern. It is as follows:
Using 3.25 needles cast on 100 sts. Knit 3 rows garter (1st row wrong side).
Work 18 rows pattern as for Back of Coat decreasing 3 sts. evenly across last row (97)sts.
Work 11 rows rib as for Sleeves of Coat.
Now the confusing bit, COAT BACK
Knit 3 rows garter stitch (1st row wrong side).
4th row is pattern
5th row is pattern
6th row is pattern
7th row is pattern.
Repeat rows 4 - 7 incl. three times, then 4th and 5th rows once.
Then it goes on to say work in stocking stitch until work measures 18cm from beg. ending with a knit row.
Nest row P1, *P2 tog, P1 repeat.
I am not sure what row is the 18th row.
First 3 garter (as on both), then rows 4,5,6,7 x 3 to me is 15. I am not an experienced knitter and this is for my first grandchild so any help would be very much appreciated.
