I don't understand this instruction in my pattern
by: Ratchadawan

Let's break down the instructions:

"Keeping facing fold line slip st correct throughout as now set": This part is instructing you to maintain the stitches along the facing fold line as they are currently set. It's important for maintaining the structure or design element of the garment.

"Cont straight until left front matches back to beg of raglan armhole shaping": Here, you're being asked to continue knitting straight without any increases or decreases until the left front section of the garment matches the back section in terms of length up to the point where you began shaping the raglan armhole.

"Ending with a WS row": This indicates that you should end this section of knitting on a wrong side row.

To put it simply, you're maintaining the stitches along the facing fold line, knitting straight until the left front section matches the back section in length up to where you started shaping the raglan armhole, and finishing this portion of the knitting on a wrong side row. Then follow the next step from the instruction.

Thanks for asking,
Ratcha
