Help with chart and written instructions
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm having trouble with the instructions about the chart. Please explain "until there are not enough sts before the next marker". I followed the chart 1-12, repeat 13-28 until I can't repeat to the center stitch marker, do the center stitch, then back to 13-28 to the end marker, then when do I knit 29-40? I'm very confused everytime I read this. Hope someone can clear this up for me. Thank you very much.

Falling Leaves Section
RS (odd-numbered) rows in this section are worked as follows:
K3, sl m, yo, *work sts 1-12 from chart, repeat sts 13-28 (between the heavyblack lines) until there are not enough sts before the next marker towork another full repeat, work sts 29-40 from chart to next m, yo, sl m, k1(center stitch), sl m, yo, repeat from * to next m, yo, sl m, k3.

As you work through the chart several times, you'll add more stitches. So on the 2nd time doing the chart rows, you may be able to work the repeated stitches 2 or 3 times instead of once as you did the first time. That will leave you with just a few sts left over before the marker. You don't have enough sts to do a full repeat.

Thank you Suzeeq,
When I don't have enough sts to do a full repeat, do I start to knit the 29-40 row? See, this is where I'm very confused.

The 29-40 are stitches, not rows. So depending what row you're on (the numbers at the sides of the chart) you have either no stitch after a repeat or 12.

Yes, you work 29-40 (however many of those sts are in the row) when you don't have enough sts left to work another full repeat of 13-28.

Thank you salmonmac,
I believe I got the hang of it. I did a few rows and understanding it better of what you're saying.
