I think I'm over thinking this pattern
. Or it's not written very clearly to this sweater newbie.
First of all, for the 2nd knit row in the short row section, it says:Work back to within 4 stitches of ribbing [ed- 1st wrapped stitch was the last before ribbing], wrap stitch, turn, work back within 4 stitches of ribbing, wrap, turn. Continue until six stitches are wrapped one each side (for a C Cup; see notes for larger cup sizes).
Which I took to mean that every 3rd stitch is wrapped, instead of every consecutive stitch. I knew this couldn't be right, wrapped stitches should be all in a row to work. Besides, 12 wrapped stitches are needed to fit a D cup, and that'd put the wrapped stitches all the way across the front of the sweater in a chest point not seen since early Madonna videos.
Anyway, now I'm at the picking up wrapped stitches part, which says:Next row, work all the way to your wrapped stitches, picking up wrapped stitches along with regular stitches and knitting as one stitch. Continue row in pattern.
This doesn't mean to pick up all the stitches in the same row, does it?
I've only used short rows in socks so far, and those are picking up one stitch per row. The pattern seems vague to this sweater newbie. It continues:On wrong side, purl across until you reach your wrapped stitches, picking up the wrapped stitches along with the regular stitches, and purling as one. Continue row in pattern.
I searched the community and found the one Donna sweater FO post, but I couldn't tell from the pictures what she did.
Thanks in advance!
