Help with a Sirdar pattern - 9427
Hi there - a little help needed for my wife. She's knitting Sirdar's Cropped Cardie from the Roman Holiday book - Design 9427.
She's having a problem with the Shape Front/Sleeve section... the stitch numbers don't seem to be adding up.
Below is a cope of the section she's stuck on... could anyone please simplify and explain what to do where? It's the 'shape sleeve' part that's causing particular trouble. The numbers don't seem to add up... the 47/48 etc.
Could anyone help?
