I am a beginner knitter enrolled in a local class. For our very first project, they have decided to have us make a sweater. She gave us a pattern (which I presume is her own made-up pattern) and basically no instructions. I have been working on the front and back sections for what seems like forever. When I go, I ask about how to make sleeves, and she tells me to just continue on the front section (so I'm basically doing stockinette stitch in my 2 hour class - which I already know how to do!). Anyway, here is my question and my pattern:
Cast on 30 (30, 31, 31) sts. K 1 row. P 1 row. Knit 1 row. Next row(rs); work in stst for 4 rows starting with a k row. next row(rs); k2 M1, work to the last 2 sts. M1, k2. Rep. inc every 4th row 2(2,3,3) times, the every 6th row every 9 times - 54(54,57,57) sts. Work even to 19" or desired length. Bind off."
I should also state that there is a very limited glossary that she included with the instructions. Can anybody decipher this for me. I understand everything up until "Rep. inc every 4th row". Does that mean I stitch four rows in stst then increase again?
All help is appreciated.
Very confused and frustrated
