Need Help with Berroco Pattern
I purchased Berroco knitting booklet #259 and started knitting the pattern Napoli.
I'm working on the Left Front and I'm totally lost with the instructions.
It says:
With larger needles, CO 28 (29, 32, 33, 36) . Work 3 rows ST st, end on RS. (I got this comes the issue).
Next Row (WS): CO 2 sts, p to end - 6 (11, 16, 21, 26) sts. (I already CO 29 so how can I purl to end - and have 11 sts.)? In this manner CO 2 sts at beg of every WS row 19 times more, then CO 3sts at beg of every WS 5 times. AT THE SAME TIME, when there are 28 (29, 32, 33, 36) sts on needle, end on WS.
Dec Row 1 (RS): K25 (27, 29, 31, 33), k2tog, PM, K1 (0, 1, 0, 1). Continuing to CO sts at the beg of WS rows, dec 1 st before marker every 4th row 10 times more. When there are 26 (29, 32, 35, 38) sts on needle after 1st marker, end on WS.
Dec Row 2 (RS): Work to 1st marker, K24 (27, 30, 33, 36), k2tog, PM. Still continuing to CO sts at beg of WS rows if necessary and to work decs before 1st marker, dec 1st before 2nd marker every RS row 9 times more.
It seems these 3 instructions are done simultaneously however, I don't understand if I start with 29 CO sts, how am I supposed to even begin the increases in the NEXT ROW section above when it says purl to end 11.
