Am I reading this pattern right?
I'm trying to work on this pattern, but as I'm following it, it's not turning out like the picture. Here's what the finished product looks like:


Here's what the pattern says:
1st row: (RS). *Work 1st row of Panel Pat A. **C5F. K3. Rep from * once, then from * to ** once.

2nd row: *Work 2nd row of Panel Pat A.**P8. Rep from * once, then from * to ** once.

3rd row: *Work 3rd row of Panel Pat A. **K3. C5B. Rep from * once, then from * to ** once.

4th row: *Work 4th row of Panel Pat A. **P8. Rep from * once, then from * to ** once.


When I knit it as it says the two cabled ropes (the c5f, k3 and the k3 c5b) aren't centered in the middle like the picture. It ends up with one in the middle and one at one end . I know how to fix it, but I just need to know if I read the pattern wrong, or if it was printed wrong.

Thanks!!!

I think you might be skipping the last part of the instructions. The part that says: "then from * to ** once" is the cable pattern A, so that should be the diamond looking cables on the far side, which would then put the ropes in the middle.

So, what I am reading, is:
Cable pattern A, rope, A, rope, A

I get there from:
*A, **rope, repeat from * (this means do A, rope) then from * to ** once (this means do just A once, because A is the only part between the single star to double stars)

help with same pattern
hi!

i am so glad that i found someone working this pattern! i have never followed a knitting pattern. although, i can understand the basics of this pattern, what i don't understand is a) what the "Panel Pat" instructions are for and b) if i am supposed to start with the "Panel Pat" or the "Bag" instructions.

any help is appreciated!!

Follow the main instructions for the bag, which tells you when to work on the cable panel. Just do it step by step, it's written fairly well.
