I'm a newbie and I'm now stuck at knitting the following vest:
I'm stuck where it says "Rnd 1: K2, *p2, k2, rep from * to 2 sts before marker, work 2 tog, p2, sl marker, k2, sl marker, work 2 tog, p2, * k2, p2, rep from * to end - 154 sts."
Can someone elaborate what "work 2 tog, p2, sl marker, k2, sl marker, work 2 tog" means??? After that it says to "working in ribbing as established, continue to dec 1 st before 1st marker and after 2nd marker every rnd until band ...." Does that mean dec 1 stitch by knitting 2 stitches together and then continuing with the ribbing? wouldn't that alter the pattern?? please help, i've been unravelling my work the whole day. THanks!!
