1 Attachment(s)
im on row 9, and i was wondering what to do when it says work pattern until 1 stitch before marker, what will i do with the 1 stitch?

and also the repeat row 8 & 9 thus inc 8. every second row until, i get the until part. But do i work row 8 & 9 until i have enough rows and stitches?

thank you! there should be a picture of the pattern of row 9

It says you're to yo, k2 yo. Do the yO, k1, move the marker, k1, yo and do the repeat.

And yes, repeat row 8 and row 9 until the you've done the required number of rows and have the required number of sts.

some more questions....
it says until there are 22 rows and 264 stitches im on row 15 and have allot more stitches then 264:( sooo im waaay off with what im doing, ive done the y.o, knit 2, y.o part on every second row threw the whole row. Im guessing this is the mistake ive done:S

Are you adding only 8 sts per increase row? And did you start with the right number of stitches in the first place?

Don't forget that you do yo and k2tog on parts of that row, not just yo k2 all across it. You should have 4 markers on the needles which are between the k2 sts. You just do a yo before and after the k2s at the markers, not all the way across the row.

It seems to me that it takes 106sts to do row 7 and you increase 8sts as you knit the row so that you end with 114sts. You need to increase 150sts to get to 264sts. That's a little less than 19 more inc rows. But you certainly shouldn't be over 264 at 15 rows. It may help to keep track of the number of sts between markers and make sure you're increasing the correct number from one marker to the next as a check.

After i have divided the work it says to continue pattern on the right arm, but what im wondering is which pattern? the one from row 9? and if so how do I follow this without markers?

It means the stitch pattern, which looks like stockinette stitch, so you'd just continue that.

It may also help to look at the picture of the finished garment. What pattern can you see continue on the sleeve? Can you scan a picture so we can see it? or can you give us the name of the pattern?
