I can not understand directions - Kelly Kit Aran Sweater

by Marie
(Spring Hill, Fl. USA)



I recently purchased a Kelly kit with yarn from Aran sweater Market in Ireland. I have in the past made many sweaters, and understood the directions. This one has me baffled. I will start with the first Diamond panel of 22 rows

Diamond Panel (16sts)

1 P6 C4L P6

2 and all back rows follow sts. what does this mean??? all back rows follow sts?

3 P5 C3R(P) C3L(K) P5 etc.... I understand the rest.

continue on next problem, Repeat these 22 rows Ok I understand that, but the next direction follows is another Diamond Panel of (18 sts) and 26 rows that need to be repeated, also to (all back rows follow sts.) and to repeat the 26 rows. Its just not coming together in my mind. 96 rows altogether is not long enough, 22+22+26+26+=96
I called Aran sweaters many times and they will not help me.

I would appreciate any help, I'm making this sweater for my 2 sons and Godson.
Thank you

Marie Kelley

I am struggling with this pattern too
by: Mjlap

Love to see an update on how Marie's sweaters are coming along. I think I am going to have to create my own line by line instructions from the one's they gave me...

This is the worst pattern ever
by: Anonymous

I have knit a lot and never had any trouble reading a pattern. I purchased the Malone clan pattern and I’m on my 3rd rip back and I’m not even half way up on the back. I also purchased the plaque and the the piece of sweater on that looks different to the picture of the sweater. I’m so confused I’m not sure what to do with this.

Can't understand Aran Sweater Directions
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Marie,

"All back rows follow sts" means to knit the knit sts and to purl the purl sts.

The diamonds panel patterns tell you to repeat those rows are just the way the patterns are written. I see many of those in the stitch patterns. They have to say which rows to repeat to get the complete or the right look. e.g. some patterns repeat from row 2-x instead of row 1-x, something like that.

It doesn't mean you will have to repeat it once for this sweater, you'll probably have to do more than that. This will depend on the size and length of your chosen sweater.

So, don't worry about the length of the sweater. It'll be fine.

Thank you for stopping by and share your question. I'll email you a link to this post personally. You'll probably get one from the auto notification too.

Best to your Project!

Ratcha
