I need help please
I am making a baby cardigan which has ribbing added to the front sections and neck.... something I have never done before!
The pattern says:
starting at lower edge of right front pick up and knit 44 along straight edge, 34 evenly along shaped edge, 22 from back of neck, 34 along shaped edge and 44 along straight edge. Starting with 2nd row of 2x2 rib work 1 row.
My questions are
1. is it the right front edge as I look at it? or right front as if wearing it?
2. where is says pick up and knit - does that mean there is one row of knit before I start the rib?
3. if so, does that mean that I am then at the left front to start the row of rib or the right front?
This is very confusing for a first go of picking up stitches and adding
Oh, and one more thing!!!! The finishing is different for a boy or a girl - my friend doesn't know which hers is to be, so which should I do????
