Hi,

I am going to be making a sweater by Rowan’s Martin Storey - the Corallina, but I don’t understand the following instructions:

Dec 1 st at each end of next and 5 foll 8th rows;
Inc 1 st at each end of next and 4 foll 16th rows - i think understand, not 100% sure;
K2tog tbl Psso Front opening edge st worked as a slip st at beg of every RS row and all other sets in g st

I believe those are my main questions. Thank you so much for your help.

knitting pattern question - decrease instruction
by: Ratchadawan

"Dec 1 st at each end of next and 5 foll 8th rows"

This is to dec 1 st at each end on the next row and then on every 8th row 5 times.

"Inc 1 st at each end of next and 4 foll 16th rows - i think understand, not 100% sure;"

This is to inc 1 st at each end of the next row and then on every 16th row 4 times.


"K2tog tbl Psso Front opening edge st worked as a slip st at beg of every RS row and all other sets in g st"

This is a little bit confusing to me because I don't know how the work looks like. I know that the instruction states to Knit 2 together through the back loops and then passover the front opening edge st. This will create slip stitch and making the edge look neater. You would do this at the beginning of every right side row. Not sure about "and all other sets in g st". Maybe it just saying that you don't need to do anything else to the wrong side rows, just keep them in garter st?

Sorry for not completely helping. If this doesn't help you then You can email the full pattern to me at; ratchachambers@to-knit-knitting-stitches.com and I will be happy to take a good look at it.

Thanks for sending in your question! Happy New Year!
