Pattern for yoke help

Postby Olivia_Catherine » Wed Jan 10, 2018 10:50 pm

Hi all,

I'm just starting to knit my first jumper and am a bit confused by some of the instructions.

There are 4 rows to repeat multiple times:

1. [k1, p1] x4, *s5 wyif, [k1, p1] x2; rep from * to last 2 sts, k1, p1
2. [p1, k1] x3, *p5, [p1, k1] x2; rep from * to last 4 sts, [p1, k1] to end
3. [k1, p1] x4, k2, p1tog with float, k2 [k1, p1] x2; rep from * to last 4 sts, [k1, p1] to end
4. As row 2.

At the end it says: work yoke patt rows 1-3 one time more. On patt row 4, cast off neck sts as follows:
Work 22 sts in patt, cast off centre 13 sts, work in patt to end.

What does 'in patt' mean? Does it mean work the stitches in row 4 as described above unless casting off?

Many thanks,
Olivia

Yes, that's exactly what it means.

Thank you for your reply, darknit
So I've completed that row, and now should begin with LH shoulder. I presume that means left shoulder when wearing it?

It says work in patt as set to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. So I've done the first 11 stitches of row 1 again...is that correct?
The next row says to work in patt - do you start from the beginning of row 2 or will it be a stitch half way through that row?

I think I know what you are saying but it is quite confusing (not your fault :unsure: ) If you are working from the middle of your row outwards, you will need to work out which stitch you should be doing (either by counting from the end or looking at the rows below)

Yes it means left shoulder when you are wearing it.

I am not sure about the first 11 stitches bit of your question - but if you do it you should be able to see if it's wrong within a few stitches and go back.
