Question about a pattern...
I am working on http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...html?noImages= and it is REALLY going very well. One question....once I finish the increases, it says work until piece measures 8 (10) in 44 (48) sts... does that mean work it until its 8 or 10 inches OR 44 to 48 rows?

Thanks!

well, first--it's not 8 to 10 inches or 44 to 48 inches--it's 8 or 10 and 44 or 48 depending on the size you've chosen to knit...

second--doesn't it say 44(48) sts? I haven't looked at the pattern but I'd take that to mean you knit 8 or 10 inches long (depending on the size you've decided to knit) keeping w/ either 44 or 48 (again, depending on size) sts wide....

That's just my thoughts w/o looking at it...hope this helps...

Depending on what size you are making, you incr until 8 or 10 inches at which spot you shoul have 44 or 48 stitches....

Thanks! I understand now. If you look at the pattern (I am ALMOST at 10 inches in length and have my 44 stitches) it says

Shape armholes
Row 1 K1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
Row 2 Purl.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 thirteen (14) times more. Place rem 16 (18) sts on holder.


Does that mean after I reach my 10 inches, the VERY next row, I will start with these instructions? I'm just trying to make sure I don't have to take this piece off yet....

Thanks! You guys are great!

Thanks!! Ok, now I am at this point
Shape armholes:
Dec row
Row 1 K1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1--32 (34) sts.
Row 2 and all even-numbered rows (WS) Purl.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 ONCE MORE--30 (32) sts
Next row and every odd-numbered row (RS) K to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. Rep this RS
row and purl WS row fourteen times--16 (18 ) sts. Purl 1 row and place sts on
stitch holder.

...can you tell me if I am understanding what I am supposed to be doing???



I do exactly what is says for row one and row two.....
then it says repeat row one and row two (am I supposed to have 30 or 32 stitches
on my needles depending on my size????? after I finish this step?)
Then it says every odd row, do I no longer have to ssk since it's not in this
set of instructions???? and when I am finished with these steps I should have
either 16 or 18 stitches on my needles depending on the size?????

No, you DO need to do the ssk (this is row 1 in the directions). This will make the decrease even more prounounced as you are now doing it every row.
and when I am finished with these steps I should have
either 16 or 18 stitches on my needles depending on the size????
Yes

No, you don't do the ssk. Because if you're starting with 30/32 sts and dec 2 sts (ssk and k2tog) for 14 times you'd end up with 2 or 4 sts. Do only the k2tog - the instructions plainly say to knit the row until the last 3 sts.

sue

ETA: Also, you won't be doing the decrease on every row, just on the odd numbered rows; continue to purl on the even rows.
