Beginner(ish) struggling to understand pattern!


Emsy

Question

Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong area but I have just signed up. Hoping someone can help me decipher a baby cardigan pattern I am attempting. I believe it is in UK terms...

 

It says, for row 2, 1tr in each st to end, 1tr in third of 3-ch from previous row.

 

What does the '1tr in third of 3ch... row' mean? It comes up a lot in this yoke section.

 

Any tips or pointers would be gratefully received!

 

Thanks a million :)

In US double / UK triple, you normally have a turning chain of 3 chains which brings you up to the stitch height of the next row, and those 3 chains also 'stand in for' a DC.

 

In the next row, when you come to that turning chain, you normally make a stitch into that turning chain, in the top chain.  '1tr in third of 3ch' means '1 tr in the third chain of the 3ch in the row below'.  They were trying to be less wordy I guess, but ended up less clear.

Right.  If you were just doing plain trebles, you start each row with a chain-3 (a functional treble), and end each row by making your last TR into the ch-3 that started the row below.
