OK I am attempting my first garment, unless you include socks It is the Alene Camisole that was featured on Knitty Gritty. I included the link to the pattern incase it makes it easier to see the actual pattern in order to help better answer my question/fix my problem
“Beginning at lower edge of bodice and using size 6 needles, cast on 87 (93, 99, 107, 119, 121, 131) sts and work 1” in stockinette st. With RS facing, increase 1 st at each end of needle this and every 6th row 2 times-- 91 (97, 103, 111, 121, 125, 135) sts.
Work evenly until back measures 4 (4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6)" from beginning."
Ok I’ve casted it on my 87 stitches (I’m doing a small), my gauge is just about spot on and I’ve knitted 1" and I’m ready to start the increase. Now I know I have 87 stitches and I need to get to 91. Keep in mind I’m not working in the round yet.
So my question is, that on the RS I need to increase 1 stitch at each end of needle (does this mean I increase 2 times, one at the first needle and one at the end needle?) But then I would end up with too many stitches if I increased 2 stitches at row 1 and 6 and then repeated it 2 times.
So should I only increase 1 stitch on row 1 and row 6. Does that mean at row 7 I increase another stitch or is it JUST on row 6, 12 and 18? Or is it on rows 1 and 6, and then on rows 7 and 12? I’m unsure of what “2 times” includes I guess.
I’ve frogged twice, so I figured it was time to ask. I hope my question makes sense as I’m just trying to figure out which rows I’m actually increasing on so I can get my 91 stitches.
I hope someone can help me, thanks!
