Ok, I've finally gotten brave enough to try my first garment (although I'm being cheap and using all black Caron Simply Soft until I sort of know what I'm doing, but that's neither here nor there).
I'm having a little bit of trouble deciphering the pattern (located here
), which reads as follows...
Next Rnd: K2, place marker, p2tog, p1, work 51[57,
63, 69, 75, 81</span>] sts in patt as set, place marker, p1, p2tog, k3, place
marker, p2tog, p1, work 51[57, 63, 69, 75, 81] sts in patt as set, place marker,
p1, p2tog, k1.
Work 3 rnds in patt as set.
Next Rnd: [Work in patt to marker, slip marker,
p2tog] to last st, k1. 112[124, 136, 148, 160, 172</span> ] st.
When it says, "work 57 sts in patt as set," is the p2tog, p1 that "pattern?" Or is 3x3 ribbing, the pattern up until that point, the "pattern?" Because p2tog, p1 over and over seems like an awful lot of decreasing and doesn't make a whole lot of sense at the bottom of the vest. I'm confused.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
Also, while I'm posting... I chose this pattern because I wanted a basic, fitted, v-neck vest. Does anyone have good options for this? Maybe something with a deeper v-neck I could try next time? I like the shape of the Eunny Jang argyle vest, but I am absolutely not up for the colorwork or the steeking, so, you know, a solid, easy version of that would be nice.
