Old man needs Help with pattern
Hi,
I am going to try my hand at knitting my first sweater. I have done hats and various kitchen things so I do have a little knitting knowledge.
The patern for the sweate I want to knit is here, http://www.berroco.com/patterns/dan
but I don't understand the pattern. It seems to start decreases at the beginning of the first row after ribbing and doesn't say how many rows to work before finishing off.can anyone explain this pattern to me ant help will be greatly appreciated. Love your site.

Row 2: P2(4-6-7-9), work Row 2 of Twisted Rib over 7 sts, * p7(8-9-10-11), work
Row 2 of Twisted Rib over 7 sts, rep from * 4 times more, p2(4-6-7-9). Work even in
pat as established until piece measures 16 1/2” from beg, end on WS.



This is from the pattern. I bolded the part that says how long it should be from the cast on. Is this what you were looking for? That's a really nice sweater.

The decrease after the ribbing and change in needle size is to adjust the width of the sweater. After that first row you continue with the pattern as set up just as GG has indicated.
It is indeed a very good looking sweater.

Thank you GrumpyGramma and Salmonmac for your help. I don't know what they mean by "knit twisted rib over seven stitches. I think I get the rest of the instructions. Thanks again for your assistance.

The second line under the "Back" instructions tells you how to do the twisted rib (sounds like a new dance step, huh?):
Twisted Rib: Row 1 (RS): P1, * LT2, p1, rep from * across.
Row 2: K1, * RT2, k1, rep from * across.
Above that in the sitch Glossary are the directions for LT2 and RT2.
Basically over 7 sts you'll have p1, LT2, p1, LT2, p1.
That'll give you that nice double mini cable that is featured in the close-up photo.

Thanks a lot, I knew the twist stitch but the over 7 sts threw me off. I got it now, thank you much.

Welcome to KH!

That's a very good looking sweater, Rick. Be sure to come back here and ask questions if you get stuck again!

I'd love to see the finished sweater. Bet it turns out lovely!

(Meanwhile, if twisted rib is a new dance move, it sounds painful to me!)
