I have the right needles... (what luck.. I only have one pair...!!!)
I'm going to make it in the large size.... But, without the stripes, (my yarn is variagated (is that the right word..? It has bits of diff. colors in it anyway.)
So, is this what I would do...
Cast on 42 stitches, 2 rows in rib pattern, which is....
Rib Pattern Row 1: *k2 (p2, k2), p2 (k2, p2)*, rep to last 2 sts, k2 (p2, k2) Row 2: *p2 (k2, p2), k2 (p2, k2)*, rep to last 2 sts, p2 (k2, p2) These 2 rows set the rib pattern. (can someone explain this bit to me.... Im guessing k2 is knit 2 and p2 is purpl 2 (now I have to work out how to purl aswell... gah) why are they in brackets...?? and, what does rep to last 2 sts mean..?
Dec 1 st at each end of next row and every foll 3rd row until 24(28, 32) sts rem.
so... after the 2 rows of rib pattern, I knit normally.... but decresse one stitch at each third row..? (Dec. is just "Knitting" two together isnt it..??) Until i have 32 st. in my row....
Work 3 more rows ending with a WS row.
Im guessing I do three rows....... but, what does WS mean..? Inc 1 st at each end of next row and every foll 12th row, taking inc sts into rib pattern, until there are 38(42, 46) sts.
Does this mean, from the next row, increase one stitch, then, every following 12th row you increase it by one stitch..?
Work 11 rows.
Does this mean 11 normal rows..?
If anyone can help me at all...... that would be SO appreciated.... Im such a noob And this is just one sleeve...
