Front edgings and neckband
I am knitting a baby cardigan and I am to pick up and knit 171 stitches (29 sts evenly up straight edge, 42 sts evenly up shaped edge, 29 sts evenly from 26 cast off sts at back of neck, 42 sts evenly down shaped edge and 29 sts evenly down straight edge to fold of hem).
Is there a technique to help me pick up the stitches evenly so that there are no puckers or holes?
Also, what does y2rn mean? Pattern reads:
Moss stitch 34, k2tog, y2rn, s1, k1, psso, oss-st to last 38 sts, k2tog, y2rn, s1, k1, psso, moss-st to end.
I do this for the edging for one row only - the 6th row of an 11-row moss stitch pattern.
Thank you so much for any assistance.
