Wish to add: Project is a pullover sweater for a 12 month old using sport weight alpaca and size 3 needles.
Inst:#2 - Q#1- okay, good. Q#2 - okay, got it. That helps. I was definitely starting the increase row too soon at row 5.
Inst: #3 - Q#1, Q#2, Q#3 - okay, good. thank you so much.
OKAY, Here Are The Issues:
Q#1: Increases that occur on an "all knit" rows (rows 1 & 5): Type of increase: an MIT added about 1 inch from each end? Or should I use k1f&b about 1 inch from each end? (I hate k1f&b, but not as much as p1f&b - too tight, too time consuming, too easy to drop a stitch.)
Q#2: Increases that occur on "all purl" rows (rows 2 & 4): Type of increase: p1f&b about 1 inch from each end? Do I have any other option?
Q#3: Increases that occur on "all mock waffle stitch pattern rows" (rows 3 & 5): Q#3-A: When adding the increase on each end, I should choose the easiest for me, whether that is a knit increase or purl increase? Q#3-B: If increase st. added about 1 inch from each end, this will disrupt the pattern (of P1,*k1, p1) on that row, won't it? I would have 2 purls (or 2 knits) together when each stitch is to alternate.
