Beginner Knitter

by Cassie
(Maryland)

I am knitting my first sweater and want to make sure I have the terminology down before I begin.

The first instructions after casting on 100 stitches is "work 3 rows rib *1a-1r* and though I know what ribbing is, I am not sure about the rest of that step.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

YOUR ANSWER



I haven't actually seen this abbreviation before so I did a google search on the phrase and found the pattern for this Three Movies Sweater.


Three Movies Sweater


As it starts with same instructions as your exert above, I am betting this is the pattern you are attempting. Having read the pattern (the English bits of it at least), I am still none the wiser about what *1a-1r* means.

However by taking a good look at the photos on the site, I can tell you that the instructions are telling you to knit a K1, P1 rib for three rows.



Hope this helps...
