Help with Bettna Long Cardigan/Noro
I have started the Bettna cardigan and I am confused about something. For the back, I have cast on, knit 14 rows and have changed to St st. When the directions say "work evenly until piece measures 16 1/2", is that measured from where I began the St st or from the bottom edge? The sleeve and upper body also gives measurements in the same many so I am just confused what they mean by "piece".

I think it means from the beginning, unless otherwise stated. For example, it's common to see "until armhole measures...." which would be from the beginning of the armhole.

I've knit 7 Bettna cardigans. Yeah, 7! :wink:

Knit until the piece is xx" means the whole piece. From the cast on til xx" is achieved.

GrumpyGramma is right.

You might find my notes helpful. (see links all'll need'll see what I mean....)
