Cardigan shaping help!

Postby Rach0910 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 8:36 pm

I need some advice, I've taken over knitting a cardigan from my mum (she's terminally ill and can no longer knit) and I'm stuck understanding part of the pattern.
I'm on the Right Front ... Shape Front Edge
1st row. K2tog (front edge), knit to end.
2nd row. Purl
1st and 2nd rows set front shaping.
Working 28 rows dec 1 st at front edge in 5th and every foll 6th row.
30 sts.

I've done the 1st and 2nd rows but I don't understand the next bit. The pattern up to the shaping was st st. Please can someone advise.

Many thanks

Hello Rach

Hope I can help.

See if this makes sense:

Row 1. k2tog knit to end.
" 2. purl
" 3. knit
" 4. purl
" 5. k2tog knit to end
6. purl
7. knit
8. purl
9. knit
10. purl
11. k2tog knit to end

Now continue to knit and purl rows and on each sixth row k2tog until there are 30 stitches left on your needle.
Hope this makes sense.
