I am knitting this Country Jacket Sweater
and want to make sure I understand a couple of early instruction. (size m)
Work in Twisted Garter St for 6 Rows, change to St st, Work until piece mearsures 17 inches from beg, ending with a WS row." Does this mean I measure from the very bottom edge where I started with the Garter Stitch or from the beginning of the St St?
The Second question is in the same part when I get to the shape armholes... it reads "bind off 2 sts at beg of next 2 rows." Dec 1 st each end of next row 0 at each end of next row---47 sts. Work until armholes measure 10 inches."
Soo, I would bind off 2, knit to end, turn, bind off two, is that considered 2 row? Then I am completely confused what the dec 1 for 0 means with 47sts?
And the next part of shaping the shoulders, "Bind off 7 st at beg of next 2 rows, 8 sts at beg of next to rows, then bind off rem 15. This means to bind off 7, knit, turn, bind off 7 knit, bind off 8, knit, turn, bind off 8 more, knit, turn I should have 17 st remaining that I bind off?
Perhaps this will help me with more of that pattern - but I am pretty sure I will have more questions when I get to the front, the buttons, the sleeves, etc!
Thanks, any help will be appreciated!
