I'm currently working on a Sirdar pattern, #2195, a cable sweater. I've completed the back and both sides, and have just started on the sleeves. I've finished the 8 rows of ribbing, and now the pattern says:
1st Row. k10, p2, k3, work from * to * as given for 1st row of back, p2, k10.
2nd Row. P9, k4, work from * to * as given for 2nd row of back, p1, k4, p9.
Okay, so I've done these 2 rows, no problem. Now here is where I get confused:
1st and 2nd rows set st-st and cable patt as set (throughout) and starting with 3rd row of patt as given for back between asterisks and working inc sts in st-st inc 1 st at each end of 3rd and every foll 8th row to 59 sts.
So I understand that I'm going to include 2 stitches in row 3, 11, 19, 27, etc., but what stitches do I use leading up to the * to * part? I hope what I'm trying to say makes sense?!
