Please help to understand a chart
http://gosyo.co.jp/english/pattern/e...ooded_Vest.pdf

HOOD

Please help me to understand this chart on pick up stitches from front n back pcs

I understand the calculation is 41+14+14+11=80

But It stated 42 sts & 42 sts where I don't know where to get the other 2 sts?

Question 2: on the top of the hood it has 30sts & 30sts=60
But from my 80 or 82 sts-12=68

Where should the other 8 sts go?

Thank you for your help

You pick up 41 sts on the back and 14 + 14 on the fronts, that's 69 sts and there's 1 more, not 11 for a total of 70 sts. The sts at the top of the hood is what you'd be left with after decreases.

It looks like you pick up 41 for the back neckline, which will be 20 + 1 center stitch + 20 and then pick up 14 + 14 for the front edges--thats a total of 69. According to the schematic, you'll gradually increase to 85 (42, center stitch, 42) and then decrease down to 61 (30, center stitch, 30) .

Are there more directions? The chart doesn't show the increases and decreases, just that the happen on each side of the center stitch.

You work the hood in patt stitch B which is 16 sts before the repeat, repeat 10, then 6 sts at the end. I don't see where you get the 11 sts from. It says 41 on the back (20+1+20) + 14 on each front. 28 plus 41 is 69. I was mistaken about the 1 st, it's accounted for in the 41 sts. That doesn't fit the pattern repeat though.

Japanese patterns and charts are not easy to read, couldn't you find something else you like that's a bit less challenging?

Thank you for both of your uncertainty n I will officially give up this chart.

But seriously I can't find anything like this to go on with the hood tht I need to add to the vest I'm knitting for my son

This silly chart has the right numbers of stitches n size n hood in chart that I want ..... If u care to help me to search, there r really not many I can find to fit to my requirement:

-Chest measurement 32"
-Pick up n knit the hood, instead of a new cast on piece
-With a hood in drawing for me to understand
-Button up

Please help!!!!!

Thank you

I didn't go through all these, but if you enter hood in search there is a long list.

Wow, I didn't know you could search KPC.

Jane, you can also find a ton of patterns at ravelry.com. Also groups that can help interpret that japanese pattern.
