I've just started knitting a bolero jacket for my DD which has a fancy edge.  I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing, but would feel more confident with some clarification, if that is ok?

It says to cast on 6 stitches, cast off 3 stitches, slip stitch now on right needle back onto left needle.  Repeat.

So does this mean that when I finish the first repetition I should be left with 3 stitches on the needle?  I have done this and have 2 stitches, then a bit that goes down where I did the casting off, and then the 3rd stitch.  Does that sound right?

You'll have 3. CO 6 sts, BO 3 - there's 2 sts on left needle and 1 on right needle. Put that single st on to the left needle and do it again.

Excellent.  That's what I thought, and that is what happened when I followed the instructions Smiley
