Help with Pattern please!
ok here is the pattern- look towards bottom for question (but you need to see the whole pattern to answer it )



Cast on 90 sts. Work in ribbing on K2, P2, for 4 rows.

Row 5: K6, ribbing to the last 6 sts, K6.
Row 6: P6, ribbing to the last 6 sts, P6.
Row 7: same as row 5
Row 8: K8, ribbing to the last 8 sts, K8.
Row 9: P8, ribbing to the last 8 sts, P8.
Row 10: same as row 8
Row 11: K10, ribbing to the last 10 sts, K10.
Row 12: P10, ribbing to the last 10 sts, P10.
Row 13: same as row 11
Row 14: K12, ribbing to the last 12 sts, K12.
Row 15: P12, ribbing to the last 12 sts, P12.
Row 16: same as row 14
Row 17: K14, ribbing to the last 14 sts, K14.
Row 18: P14, ribbing to the last 14 sts, P14.
Row 19: same as row 17

Continue in the this way to work 2 sts more in the crosswise ridges (at beginning and end) and 2 sts less in the vertical ribs at center, every 3 rows, until only the center vertical rib of K2 remains. K1 row plain and break off yarn, leaving at least an 18 end to sew with.


What does that mean? I know I should be able to figure out the pattern but I can't? Can somebody make it dummy proof for me and finish the pattern? Pretty please?
I see that everytime the beginning stitches are dropped by two. BUT I get confused since they same for example row 19 is the same as 17. HELP! :(

It looks like you gradually increase the edge stitches and decrease the center ribbing by two on every 3rd row. On each 3rd row, you are making a ridge across those edge stitches.

Row 5,6,7 would be

kkkkkk rib for 78 stitches kkkkkk
pppppp rib for 78 stitches pppppp
kkkkkk rib for 78 stitches kkkkkk

Rows 8,9,10

kkkkkkk rib for 76 stitches kkkkkkk
ppppppp rib for 76 stitches ppppppp
kkkkkkk rib for 76 stitches kkkkkkk

Keep going this way, increasing the edge stitches by one on each end and decreasing the center ribbing by 2.

It's a three row repeat. Knit, , purl, knit; on the edges with 2 x 2 ribbing in the center.

each time you start the repeat over you increase **TWO** stitches on either side of the central ribbing, and decrease the central ribbing 2 on either side.


20 knit 16, rib until 16 sitches left - knit 16
21 purl 16 rib until 16 stitches left, purl 16
22 - same as 20

23 knit 18, rib until 18 stitches left, knit 18
24 purl 18, rib until 18 stitches left, purl 18
25 - same as 23
