Commencement of yolk on baby matinee coat.

by Judith

I have slipped all the sts from left front, sleeve, back, sleeve and right front on to a size 10 needle. I have correct number of sts in each piece.

Now to bring all together:

1st Row: (Buttonhole and decrease row) K2 cast off 1 st K3 (including st on needle)

Do ! presume this refers to the 5 stitches that form the border on the front?

So I would knit 2

then knit 2 more to cast off 1 st

then knit 2 more, these and the 1 from from the cast off making 3

I would appreciate some clarity on this please...

Hi Judith,

I'm picturing you are working around the top edge starting from right front or maybe the bottom corner of the right front. I'm not sure.

I would just do k2, then cast of 1 st, then k3. and then move on the next instruction. I would think that the next row will be an increase row to make up the cast off st. There no need to knit extra 2 sts. after the first 2 sts.

I could be wrong on this because I don't have the complete details of this pattern. If this doesn't sound right then you can give me more details.

Thanks for understanding and the question.
