The first set - work 4 [4:5:5:6:6] - means to do that many sts in pattern depending on which size. These numbers - 41[47:51:59:65] - are how many you have after the increases or decreases. Same with the others, they're measurements. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

Since you're knitting the smallest size, just use the very first numbers when a string of them are given. So when you see - work 4 [4:5:5:6:6] - work 4 sts. Dec 1 st at each end of row means to decrease at the beginning and end of that row. That doesn't have to mean in the very first st, you can work 1 st, dec, then work the row to the last 3 sts, dec and do the last stitch. Many people like to leave the edge st plain so it makes seaming easier. For the other sets of numbers - 41[47:51:59:65]; measure 10[11:12:13:14:15], (4[4 1/4 :4 3/4 :5 1/4:5 1/2 : :6]in) after your decreases or increases you'll have 41 sts, measure 10" and 4" __________________ sue- knitting heretic

But I got a little question please. When the instruction says. Ending with a wrong side row, does it mean next row you will start with right side?

Those instructions mean the last row you do would be a WS row and begin the next set of instructions on a RS row. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
