I am having troubles understanding two patterns and I was hoping someone here would be able to help me out.
The first one is for a pair of armwarmers. It is a Lion brand pattern called "Cashmere Arm Cosies".
It says to repeat the firt ten rows once you have finished once until the piece measures 2 in. But, the first time you do this it already comes out two inches anyway. Okay so then it says to countinue in established pattern until the piece measures 15 inches while decreasing 1 st from each side every 6th row. Until I am left with 37 stiches. But, if I do that I would have to repeat 1-10 twelve times. Which would obviously lead to 20 inches in addition to the two I already had.
The second pattern is a mesh bag. here is the pattern:
I am doing the Itsybitsy one. The problem is that it says the you knit into the circular needles at one point. But, then shouldn't it go by rounds? It countinues to say rows, and obviously that won't work the same way since a pattern has to be different to work in the round. For the Kitchen Sink one it does this. So at this point "K 2 rows, knitting second row onto circular needle" of the pattern I really do not know what to do.
