still i don't understand how you figured out that it should be worked in that way....am sorry to give you a hard time but this part was confusing on the pattern when it says keeping pattern correct as actually it says correct and not to continue with the same pattern...to have a better idea here's the pattern number, it's: P1034

I'm working the left front

Keeping the pattern 'correct' is the same thing as keeping the remaining sts in the pattern. Since you're losing sts you can't work them the same way as on previous rows, you have to subtract a stitch. It may help you to put stitch markers between the repeats, then you can just work stockinette sts after you dec sts to the next marker.

Where's the pattern located - P1034 where?

search on google by typing knitting pattern P1034

in fact that's what i did i continued working in stocking stitch....it is still nice but like that the upper part differs from that of the pic so that's why i was getting confused whether am i doing the right stitch or not

If you're doing the entire row in stockinette, that's not what I meant. Just the beginning and end of the rows where you don't have enough sts for the k1, c2f, k1 repeat.

ok i got it so i should have worked the rest of the rows by k2tog k1 c2f k1 till i have 15sts remaining. I don't know why they don't make it clear on the pattern instructions...i will try it out and see what happens if i see that it's getting too complex i revert to st st after the 4th row

It would take too much room to write it out. And you won't work every row k2tog k1 c2f k1.... Here's how the first few rows go..

Row 5 - k2tog, c2f, k1 * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
Row 7 - k2tog, k3, * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
Row 9 - k2tog, k2, * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
Row 11 - k2tog k1 * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
Row 13 - k2tog * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
Row 15 - same as row 5, then repeat row 7, row 9, row 11, row 13 and so on.

Do you see how you begin the rows with k2tog BUT you do one less st in the pattern sequence each time.

cool it looks like you kept working the first row with some adjustments. How did you figure out that it should be worked like that? do you have some books that instruct you how to go about it?

the rows that you skipped should be worked in st st?
