what does "patt and slip 6 ..."
Im making a cardi and i dont understand what this part meants on the pattern...

1st Row : *K1, P1, rep from * to last st, K1
Rep 1st row 6[6:6:10:10:10] times more.
Next Row : Patt and slip 6 sts onto a stitch holder, patt 8[21:23:12:29:15, (m1) 1 [0:0:1:0:1] times, patt 9[0:0:13:0:16]. 18 [21:23;26:29:32] sts.

its from the "Next Row" part i dont understand.

Im guessing it means i do the K1, P1 bit and then slip 6 sts onto a st holder, which iv done, but what does it mean with the "patt 8" bit? i understand that "m1" is make 1 st

im just a bit lost is all

thanks in advance

Lindsay

They're just telling you to work those rib stitches as you have been up to the increase, then do the m1, work your ribbing as you have been to the end.

You've got it right on the first 6--that'll be used for the front band.

I had this same problem last week with a hat I was doing. Basically "patt" is another way of saying to keep with the pattern that you are doing.

So to "patt 8" you would K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1. Then make 1 (an increase) however many times it called for. Then pattern 9 (or however many required based on size of garment).

Hope that helps. Just remember, whenever you see "patt" it means to keep with the pattern you were already doing.
