Ok here's what's giving me issues....
In the transition between the "Begin Coat" and "Leg Openings" I get a little twitchy because in the Begin Coat section she says to inc at the end of every row, then purl the next. I got to the end of that part without my eye twitching.
Then I read:
Row 1: k5 (7, 11) cast off next 6 (6, 10) sts, k46 (56, 80), cast off next 6 (6, 10) sts, k5, (7, 11).
Next row: k5 (7, 11, turn, cast on 6 (6, 10) sts, turn k46, (56, 80) turn, cast on 6 (6, 10)sts, turn, k7, (11, 13) Total: (68, 82, 122) sts.
Cont until work measures 5-3/4" (7-1/4", 10") or (14, 18, 25cm) ending with a purl row.
Thus far I've been doing stockinette stitch... and now Row 1 of leg openings is knit and I'm ok with that... but then the next row says knit too and my little brain goes KABOOM and I'm like
Because clearly if you knit two rows without a row of purl between them it's not stockinette.
I'm slightly obsessive complusive. Sometimes my friends (especially the ones that knit and believe in "design features" have strong urges to smack me).
I'm going to cast on again tonight and see how it goeth. I am a little confused here too though......
Change to size 5 (4.00mm) needles. cut contrast yarn, join (A) and work 2 rows in stocking st. Inc at each end of every
row until there are 58 (72, 104) sts, then in alt rows until 68 (82, 122) sts.
Next row: Purl
In that section when it says "at each end of every row" should I purl between those rows? That would mean that the alternate rows go:
row 1 K1 make 1 K to the st before last make 1 K1
row 2 p
row 3 k
row 4 p
Repeat till 68 st
Is that right?
