what do they mean by work in reverse?
 
I am new to all this knitting a sweater thing for sure. All your help has been so very, helpful :D that I was able to complete the left side and it looks great! I will have to get someone to take pics and show you what it looks like.

My new question is: Work as given for left front, but in reverse.
Ok, left front said: edge st, P2,*K2, P2, rep from * K2, P1, edge st.
So does this mean that I start at the end and work backwards like this:
edge st, P1, K2 *P2, K2 rep from * P2, edge st.

Or,am I to reverse the stitchs like:edge st, and where it is a purl I do a knit, and knit when it says purl? :doh: :thinking: :??

Im voting for the first option.

holy cow the idea of that scares me and would make me have to click on to the next pattern! :shock: however i think if you are doing the opposite piece of the left front then it would make sense to me that it is the first option.

buuuuuuuuuuuuuut...i am still trying to figure out if i am doing YO right!! :rofling:

the first option is correct --

if the original pattern was: K1, P1, K2tog, P1
then the reverse would be: P1, K2tog, P1, K1

Good luck!!
