View Full Version : I cannot figure this pattern out!

11-11-2010, 10:25 PM
So i am knitting a hooded zipper jacket that i made about 4 years ago with no problem! And now i am having issues interupting how to place the pocket on the right front. The pattern is written with the Left front written out, but the right side it just says "reverse pocket placement and shaping" for the right side

Left Front pocket opening: (RS):K17 sts, sl next 22 sts to a holder; cast on 22 sts for lining. Work even on the 39 sts until pieces measures 10 from beg, ending with a WS row

Next Row (RS) : K 22 sts and place onto a spare needle: bind off rem 17 sts. Contin on pocket only, with the RS facing, join yarn and
k22 sts from first holder

Next Row: K1, p across

Dec Row (RS) : K1 ssk, k to end. Rep last two rows, dec every 4th row 4 times more -17 sts. Knit until 10 inch

Joining Row (WS) K1, p16, then p22 sts from spare needle. Work even on the 39 sts....

I need someone to write out the Right front instructions for me...i am so frustrated, i have tried twice and just can't figure it out. I would appreciate any help!....Pattie

I need to do some chores now, so I can not write the pattern out right now. (also it would be easier with a link to the complete instruction).

So my "quick tip":

take a few pieces of colored string (what ever you have at hand). Now cound the stitches from the "wrong" side of the needle. Place a marker on every important number of stitch and therefore "reverse" the pattern layout without knitting a single stitch.

That means, you count "backwards" and then have all your stitches layed out.
If you would have a problem with remembering what part is what, make little paper lables for the parts and tag them on (with a safty pin, for example).

Then, once you knit a row or two you will have everything infront of you.
