Unsure of understanding the pattern instructions
I am working on a Dale of Norway pattern #8101-6 Zebrafoll.
I am not sure how to interpret the following written instructions: "cont. St st and C OFF every other row at neck edge, 2 sts twice".
Does this mean to cast off 1 stitch every other row for a total of 8 rows knitted?? (Counting the rows I don't cast off along with the 4 rows that I would cast off)
does this mean to cast off 2 stitches every other row for a total of only 4 rows knitted??
(counting the rows I don't cast off along with the two rows I would cast off, casting off 2 stitches at every cast off row).
The pattern is not difficult and I can usually figure things out by going by the # of stitches needed to end the section, but in this case the count is going to be the same no matter which way I interpret the directions.
Thank you for your time, Kathleen
Without seeing the rest of the pattern I cannot be absolutely certain that my interpretation of your instructions is correct, all I can do is provide you with how I would interpret them.
Your instruction is: "cont. St st and C OFF every other row at neck edge, 2 sts twice"
The way I read this is: continue in stocking stitch and cast off 2 stitches at the neck edge on alternate rows twice.
So yes, cast of twice for a total of 4 rows.
