Need help understanding instructions
I am sure all you wonderful experienced knitters can help me. I have a few questions on a bonnet pattern in May 2009 Creative Knitting.
I have done the CO of 16 sts and worked it st st for 3-1/2 inches.
The next set of instructions I don't understand.
Using cable CO, CO 12 sts at beg of next 2 rows - 39 sts. (How do you get 39 stitches when you have 16 already and then add 12 and then 12 on the next 2 rows?
Work 2 rows in St. st.
When you do the cable CO, do you CO 12 sts, turn and then CO 12 more? After that, do you turn and work the next 2 rows in the St st?
I am sure this is something I am making harder than it really is?
