help needed with baby sweater please
Appreciate the help. ladies. The pattern is here: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patt...rterstripe.htm
Question:
Work 17 sts for front, pm, work 8 sts for sleeve, pm, work 22 sts for back, pm, work 8 sts for sleeve, pm, work last 17 sts for front
If there are 17 sts for the sides, and
5 sts for the border, that leaves 12sts for the body of the sides right? Therefore, if I want two cables (one running down each side) i would {K5(for border), K1, P2, K6, P2, K1} for each side, right?
And then I would make sure to put a cable in the middle of the sleeve on the sides right?
So, 42 (end sts on row 9) divided by 2 is 21, and 21 minus 4 is 17....so if i am starting with 46 sts, i would knit 19 sts on either side?and then decrease carefully!lol

Thanks in advance for all the help....and rest assured we all know how much you guys love to help!
