This is long but if anyone can help, I'd be so appreciative:
I am making a sweater for the first time..there are 48 stitches on the needle; then the instructions read:
"on next row knit 13, k2tog, slip center 18 to holder, join new ball and k2tog, knit across until 4 stitches remain and k2tog, k2" There were 15 sts on each side of the center 18
At this point, there are 14st on one side, 18 in center and 13 on other side.
Here's where I am confused..."Working both sides at once, continue raglan decrease as established 9 more times and AT SAME TIME decrease 1 st at each neck edge ever;y knit row 3 MORE times. Work until 2 stitches remain on each side. End having just worked row 2. Slip sts to safety pin.
The raglan decrease is row1: knit till 4sts remain, k2tog, k2
row2: purl till 4 sts remain, p2tog, p2
I've tried working this out on paper and just don't get it....Thanks for any help at all!!
