Help please- newbie
Hi there
Have a pattern that is 20 rows -
1st row K2, YO, SL1, K1, PSSO, *K6, YO, SL1, K1, PSSO
2nd Row P
3rd row K2tog, YO, K1, YO, SL1, K1, *K3 etc rpt to last X stiches

Now my work has reached required length it says "keeping in pattern" Cast off 4 at beg of next 2 rows
As I Am back on Row 1 does that mean I cast off 4 then continue to K2, YO, SL1 etc or do I Cast off 4 then start 4 stiches in to row? If its the latter I'm a bit confused as to where the 4th would end and the 5th start Would it be the K6 ?Can anyone help please? Cheers- Ciara

No you're getting rid of the first 4 sts, and the 5th one has to be knit to BO the 4th one. So cast off in knit on the RS, then the next st will be the 6th st which is a knit. After you have 1 st on the R needle from binding off, k4, YO skp and repeat k6, yo, skp, etc. The RS row will be all purl. Then on R 3 you begin with the 5th st which will be k1 before the repeated sts begin. Unless you have to decrease on the RS rows, so you would ssk, then begin with the k3.

Thank you so much my cast off rows have worked out thanks to you! Just one more Q please as this is a slightly more advanced pattern than I'm used to but thought I'll never learn unles I try. So I hope you don't mind me bothering you.
It now says to decrease each end of next row which is

K0 (brackets other sizes) K2tog yfwd k1, yfwd sl1 k1 psso.
*K3 K2tog yfwd K1 yfwd sl1 K1 psso* repeat
to last 0 (4, 0) st K 0 (4, 0)

I have 61 stitches on. So to decrease- I need to k2 together dont I? But then I'd have to start with the K2 tog again other wise I havent actually decreased ... is that right. When I tried it I ended up with only 1 st at end because I'd K2 tog before the YWD K1 SL1 to keep in the pattern... if I just knit it its not actually decrease at the end..so how do I do this? Once I've got this out the way I'll understand the rest I promise! Sorry hope you can help. Ciara

Since the dec rows begins with no knits before your k2tog in the pattern, skip the first YO and k2tog, k1, yo, skp follow the pattern; end the row by skipping the last YO.

I can't tell if this row begins - K0 (brackets other sizes) K2tog yfwd k1, yfwd sl1 k1 psso, *K3 K2tog yfwd K1 yfwd sl1 K1 psso* repeat to last 0 (4, 0) st K 0 (4, 0)

Or with - *K3 K2tog yfwd K1 yfwd sl1 K1 psso* repeat to last 0 (4, 0) st K 0 (4, 0)?

If the first one, then skip the first YO, if the second one, then ssk k1, k1tog, yo, k yo skp, k3 etc.

It's a lot faster and easier to help if you can link to the actual pattern, because sometimes cutting and pasting won't format the same way and leads to lots of extra time figuring out how it should be.

Yes, then skip the YO between the k2tog and k1, then do the next YO, dec and continue with the pattern.

No need to send the pattern, I thought it may be one that's online somewhere. It's just that since the *k3.... pattern repeat was on another line I thought it might be for a different thing.

Morning! Thanks again. I just thought that by skipping the YO It would muck up the pattern as I wont have a "hole" there. Thanks very much you've been a great help.

No you won't want a hole and it won't show that close to the edge anyway. Remember to leave out only the one at the beg of the row and at the end of the row; do the others.
