Could someone explain this line in the pattern for me?  I feel kinda stupid at this point. It's the Textured Tunic with Side Buttons. I'm trying to finish it but I'm stuck on this point.  Thank you.

Before this part, the sleeves are separated and you start to knit the Box Stitch for 5", which k2,p2 for 2 rounds and p2,k2 for another  2 rounds. Then purl 3 rounds and knit straight until the piece measure 10" from the armpit. Could someone please explain to me in lamen terms what I have to do after this?

"SET-UP RND: [Knit to marked st, purl to marked st] twice. Cont working side slit trim at each marker for 5 more rnds, following chart from rnd 2."

It refers to a chart, or maybe it's also written out. Start with row 2 of that pattern.

There's a chart for the second sentence on the last page. I was looking at the first one more.  What marked stitich is she talking about? And I forgot, It's suppose to read "knit to marked stitch, purl marked stitch".


Sorry, I'm just freaking out.

I don't have the pattern to check, but does the pattern tell you to put a stitch marker on a stitch? If so, that's the marked stitch.

I've read this so many times and I don't see where does it say to mark a stitch. It does mention the stitch markers after separating the sleeves. But that's just to tell where is the front and the back.

Is it listed in the errata page ? It might be a typo in the pattern. (and I just looked at the errata's 'home page' link - it's Stefanie Japel's website! You could probably contact her directly and ask Smiley )

And, like I said, I don't have the pattern, so this may be a really stupid question, but... the slits you're asking about, they're at the side seam, aren't they? Isn't that where the markers are? Could they be the same markers?

I have the pattern in front of me, and I think ThreadOrYarn is right. I think that the author is referring to the markers that you placed when you separated the sleeves from the body: "Place a removable marker in the first front st and the first back st. Consider the right underarm the beg of the rnd from now on."

I'm sorry. I'm just been through and it's not sinking in. I did check her errata page and it just has that "knit to marked stitch, purl marked stitch" for that page. I also looked for her email and couldn't find her email address and I did asked her at the Fitted Knits KAL.  I don't want to bug her more cause she's busy teaching and being pregnant. I was hoping if someone else could look at it and tell me what it means.

"SET-UP RND: [Knit to marked st, purl to marked st] twice. Cont working side slit trim at each marker for 5 more rnds, following chart from rnd 2."

I don't have the book with me, but the errata page says the following for page 104:
Set-up rnd: [Knit to marked st, purl marked st] twice.

It looks to me like this is when you're starting the slits at the bottom. I think it is talking about the markers from under the arms, because the slits are along the sides. It sounds like you didn't put them in because you already know which is the front, and which is the back. So you just have to find where you want to make the front and back slits, mark those, and then follow the directions. If that doesn't make sense, let me know and I will look it up when I get home and try to help you out!  Smiley

No, I didn't forget the markers. I followed the pattern until this point.
