View Full Version : Pattern trouble

09-19-2012, 04:56 AM
Hello everyone. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out with this step oft pattern for an Aran cardi.
Starting with 67 stitches

Rib 12 and place these sts on safety pin, (rib 11, inc in next st) 4 times, rib to end . 59 sts.

I'm a bit confused as to what it's asking me to do. If anyone could shed some light for a novice that would be great.

Hi and welcome to KnittingHelp!
It looks like you're setting up the pattern for one of the fronts. Work 12 sts in the rib pattern that you have been doing and place those sts on a safety pin or scrap yarn for the front band.
Work 11 sts in rib pattern and then increase in the next stitch. This will take 12sts to do one repeat. You can do a knit front and back (kfb (http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/bar-increase-english)) here if you like. Repeat this 3 more times. So you would: rib 11, kfb, rib 11, kfb, rib 11, kfb, rib 11, kfb.
Rib for the last 7sts. You'll end up with 59sts on the needle.
