I am very new to knitting and I am working on this pattern for a purse. The instructions read:
(I am skipping some of it...)
"At the same time, increase 1 st after the first stitch marker and before the second stitch marker on every RS until there are 48 sts (24 sts St st in the center). Increase 2 sts in the center on every sixth row once more (50 sts)"... etc....
I am confused? Do I increase 2 stitches in the center on every sixth row or just after I have completed creating 48 stitches? I don't think this pattern will even have 12 full rows to begin with? Why does it say EVERY sixth row?
Also, when it says to work "four rows even" does that mean to just do the Stockinette Stitch back and forth?
Any advice will be much appreciated. I need all the help I can get!
