Help with a pattern
Hey guys. I'm making this pattern http://makezine.com/craft/craft_patt...lash_swimsuit/ and I just got to the body with increases part. I am confused about what the “main pattern” and the “shoulder pattern” are. Also, how long should I work the body with increases section? Thanks.

I can’t see the illustrations but the side panels seem to be 12sts and you would follow the instructions starting at rnd 1 right under “Shoulders” (a 12st repeat).
For the main pattern, look under “Sleeves” and follow the directions there for the main pattern. (“The last patterned round you worked will be your main pattern round for the rest of the garment (Rnd 1, below).
Rnd 1: *[K2tog] 4(5) times, [YO, K1] 8(10) times, [K2tog] 4(5) times, repeat from * to end”)
.The last increase for the main body seems to be referring to the increases in the shoulder pattern (now used for side panels).
Confusion is understandable. The pattern seems to be written to minimize space rather than to maximize clarity. I hope the illustrations help!

Salmonmac is correct - these instructions are definitely lacking in clarity.

Thanks for the link, Claire. That is cute. I wonder how it would make up in cotton.

I don't see why not. The shine of the silk is rather nice and also the drape of this yarn but there are some lovely cottons too.
