Starting main body of a Rowan knitting pattern
Hello and I am hopeful you can assist me with following question. I just started knitting the Skibo Poncho pattern by Martin Story in the Rowan Knitting and Crocheting magazine Number 68 page 120. I have reached the step that says Main Body and would like to have clarification on the instructions before starting Round 1 (RS) and it reads as follows: Now work in moss st and place chart as follows *Work next 45 stitches as round 1 of chart, K1,(P1,K1) 9 times, rep from *. I know the pattern is in the center of the poncho with a moss st panel on either side of pattern column. Do I start the round with moss st panel first then follow pattern graph (45) sets across and then the other moss st panel. I am starting with 128 sts and gradually increasing up to 460 sts for poncho.
Anxious to know if you can possibly help me!
