never understand

grammadMarch 18, 2007

i have been knitting for years and always come to this problem when reading the patterns. when it says "continue pattern for so many inches and end with a knit row (or perl row). are they telling me to end it after knitting this row or end with the next row being a knit row. (or perl) whatever the pattern says.I get confused evrytime. i like the patterns that say "end by doing a knit (perl) row.

Your question reminds me of one I tormented a cooking forum with: Is a quarter cup of melted butter measured when it is solid or liquid. I would accept it written as "melted butter, a quarter cup" or "a quarter cup of butter, melted. My personality, an ISTJ on the Myers-Briggs scale, makes me ponder all sentences like this.

When I am following knitting directions, the next set of instructions usually provides a clue because it will state that you either knit or purl the NEXT row, which I interpret as the first row after the continue directions.

I take "end with a knit row", to knit the LAST row.

They are telling you that your last row should be the named row--end with a knit row means that the knit row is your last row.
