Begin by casting on 105 sts. Do not join, but work back & forth across needle in rows.
1st row:(RS) *K3. P3. Rep from * to last 3 sts. K3.
2nd row: *P3. K3. Rep from * to last 3 sts. P3.
3rd & 4th rows: As 1st and 2nd rows.
5th row: *P3. K3. Rep from * to last 3 sts. P3.
6th row: *K3. P3. Rep from * to last 3 sts. K3.
7th & 8th rows: As 5th & 6th rows.
These 8 rows form Box St. Pat.
Cont. in pat til work from beg measures approx. 10inches, ending on a 4th or 8th row of pat.
Ok, I understand all that, but it's the next statement I don't understand.
Shape sides: Keeping cont of pat, inc 1 st. each end of next 6 rows, taking inc sts into pat. Now I have 117 sts.
How can you continue the pattern, if you're only adding 2 stitches to each of these 6 rows? :shrug:
