Trying to decipher knitting instructions
I am working with a pattern (Without a Paddle Knit Sweater, Yarnspirations)
The sweater is worked from the bottom up. Sleeves are knit separate and incorporated into the sweater at the beginning of the yoke.
I am confused about what to do with the markers , so the best I can do is copy the instructions here for you so that you can have a clear picture of what I am talking about:
*k44 of sleeve. PLACE MARKER AFTER LAST ST.
K67 of body. PLACE MARKER AFTER LAST ST. REP FROM * once more. (222 st)
K44. (This has to be the sleeve again) MARK LAST ST AS END OF RND.
Here is where I'm getting confused:
NEXT RND: PLACE MARKER AFTER LAST ST. K1 K2TOG.
*kNIT TO 3 STS BEFORE MARKER. SSK K2. K2TOG. REP FROM *
twice more. Knit to last 3 sts. SSK. K1
So, am I to LEAVE THE MARKERS IN PLACE, AND NOT MOVE THEM, EVEN THOUGH IT IS HAVING ME DECREASE IN EACH SECTION (2 SLEEVES 2 BODY SECTIONS), OR, AM I TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE "PLACE MARKER AFTER LAST ST" MEANS THAT I MOVE THE MARKER ALONG AFTER THE K2TOG EACH TIME?
I HAVE TORN THIS OUT TWICE AND I AM FRUSTRATED BEYOND BELIEF, BECAUSE THE AMOUNT OF STITCHES WITHIN EACH SLEEVE IS DIFFERENT, AND, THE AMOUNT OF STITCHES IN EACH BODY SECTION ARE DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER! PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!
