Good evening, I see people have mentioned loving this pattern. I want to love it but I don't understand it and stuck at 118 sts.
See below, I have no clue what "continue as a set refers to' and I can't envision what I am even trying to knit. I looked for a video or one similar I could get an idea but this will be my first real sweater and I'm lost. Any help would be appreciated. I hate to try to find another as I had such a bugger of a time making the pants. Net time I think i'll buy the bear some clothes ! I thought it would be an easy way to get me more comfortable with clothing articles but at this point i'll stick with amigurumi and minor items (hats etc).

Continue as set for 5/6 cm (2/2,5") from cast on edge then cast of for sleeves as
follows :
Knit 18/23 sts for 1st front, knit 23/28 next sts for 1st sleeve.
Turn work and knit back on sleeve sts only then cast off these 23/28 sts.
Knit the following 36/40 sts for back; knit 23/28 next sts for 2nd sleeve.
Turn work and knit back on sleeve sts only then cast off these 23/28 sts.
Knit last 18/23 sts for 2nd front.
Join fronts and back, 72/86 sts on needle. Continue in st st keeping the garter st
When work mesures 4/6 cm (1,5/2,5") from the underarm, work 7 rows in garter st
then cast off.
Sew on the button.

thanks for any guidance.

Continue as set means whatever you have been doing, keep doing that stitch for 2 or 2.5 in. The either or is one size (2) or (2.5). Whenever you are having a problem with a pattern, please name the pattern or provide a link (not the full pattern itself).

Guessing that you are making a sweater for a bear?

Is this the pattern?

Continue as set
Likely means whatever pattern has already been established before this. It could be stocking stitch. It could be garter stitch. It could be rib. It could be whatever the instructions have already established. We really need to know the pattern. From what you’ve written, it sounds like some kind of garment for a bear. Are you knitting the front? The back? The sleeve? We just don’t know.

Yes, Sorry! I meant to list the pattern. It's 'Little Kina' by Muriela (Ravelry). I did think it meant carry on but carry on with the increase or plain knitting?

You are making the smallest size and if you read ahead, the smallest size inst. adds up to 118, showing that you are not making further increases at this time.

left front, sleeve, back, sleeve, right front
Knit 18 st. for 1st front, knit 23 for 1st sleeve. Turn…..
Knit 36 st. for back, knit 23 st. for 2nd sleeve. Turn…
Knit last 18 st. for 2nd front. 118 st.

On the front, don't forget the garter borders.

Here are some patterns by KP's Gypsycream that are specifically for bears.

This looks like a top-down cardigan. Not having the rest of the pattern to look at, I'd say by "continue as set for 5/6 cm..." means to keep working as you have been (in stockinette stitch working raglan increases or whatever) until your work measures 5 or 6 centimeters from the cast on depending which size you're making. At 118 stitches, it looks like you're making the smaller size and have reached the end of your raglan shaping, in which case you're done with the "continue as set" part. Whew!

Now you're at the part where you're going to create the arm holes.

You're starting from the center front. The first 18 stitches are the left side of the front. Knit those.
The next 23 stitches are the left sleeve. Knit those 23 stitches, turn your work and then knit those same 23 stitches again. Then turn your work again and bind off those same 23 stitches.
Now you're on the back left side. Knit the next 36 stitches for the back.
At this point, you're going to make the right sleeve. Knit the next 23 stitches, turn your work and knit those same 23 stitches again, just as for the left sleeve. Then turn again and bind those 23 stitches off.
Finally, knit the last 18 stitches, which are the right front, and you're at the end of the needle (if you're working flat).
For your next row, you'll work a border of garter stitch at the beginning and then work all live stitches. When you get to the stitches you bound off for the sleeves, ignore them completely and knit the next live stitch on your needle. Remember to work the garter stitch border at the end of the row. Once you've reached the end of your work, you should have 72 stitches on your needle.
Keep working this way with garter stitch on each end and stockinette stitch in the middle, until your work measures 4 cm from the underarm, work 7 rows in garter stitch and bind off.

Hope this helps!

looks like the poster has gotten lots of help already.

There are many wonderful people on the forum able and willing to help others.

I do not know what pattern this is but in my mind, "continue as set" should mean to continue in the stitch pattern that has been previously set. What is the pattern and what comes before the part you have quoted? Oops, never mind. You have already been helped!
