The symmetric sub-program is typically used for armhole and shoulder shaping. The main feature of the symmetric program is that the shaping codes apply to both the left and right edge of the knitting. It often appears after the band sub-program, but may appear elsewhere as well. It is possible for the symmetric sub-program to contain a divided neckline. In these cases the base value for this sub-program will have 128 added to it. (96 + 128 = 224)
|18||101||Base code 96 + 5 shaping instructions = 101.|
|19||184||Decrease both sides by 14 stitches. See 'Shaping Instructions' heading for more information on these codes.|
|21||191||Decrease both sides by 10 stitches over 9 centimeters. See 'Shaping Instructions' heading for more information on these codes.|
The asymmetric sub-program performs shaping on the left side or right side of the knitting only. The asymmetric program is often used for divided necklines. (Necklines may look symmetric, but the same program is repeated for the left and right side of the neckline and within shaping one side of the neckline or the other the shaping is asymmetric compared to the shoulder/armhole.) The first instance of an asymmetric sub-program will refer to the neckline if a divided neckline was indicated in the previous sub-program. Otherwise, it indicates shaping for the even rows. The following instance will indicate shaping for the odd rows.
|18||69||Base code 64 + 5 shaping instructions = 69.|
|19||184||Decrease one side by 14 stitches. See 'Shaping Instructions' heading for more information on these codes.|
|21||191||Decrease one side by 10 stitches over 9 centimeters. See 'Shaping Instructions' heading for more information on these codes.|
