Alice Starmore Sweater

Inishmaan SweaterLast night I started on this sweater, I've been wanting to knit one of Alice Starmore's famous patterns for a long time. I'd love to do it in 100% wool but for now have to be satisfied with an Acrylic Aran yarn with wool. I love the welt, the honeycomb pattern makes it more interesting, and it continues up into the main pattern of cables, twists and Celtic knots. The colour I chose is Loganberry, I have a length of Harris Tweed that I purchased from Katie Campbell on the Isle of Harris some years ago and have yet to make into a skirt, the colour of the yarn matches it perfectly. I'll post updates as I go along.

I have started the Inishmaan pattern and am on row 24 (finished the ribs) of the front, but have a problem. The instructions for lie 24 may as well be in Greek! She talks about m-1 which I found refunded in the back under knitting info, but then she goes on about rib1, etc. no where does it explain how to rib 1, 2, or any other number in the books that I can find. What did you do on Row 24?
