Cast on type

:???:I’m knitting the sweater from the cover of Knitter’s Magazine K86. The right back panel sz to cast on 2 stitches each RS row: Do I use the cable cast on for these rs row stitches as I did for the beginning. Or do I do the K2M1 cast on. The instructions say cast on 2 sts at beg of ever RS row… The note in the corner sz inc rows "At beg of RS rows K2, M1.

Help!!! Too confusing?

Thanks.

A cast on is different than a M1 increase.

Do you have to increase later on–one stitch each edge?

If it’s truly a cast-on that you have to do, and it sounds like it, since the increase will only give you one stitch, then the cable would work out well.

The instructions say cast on 2 sts at beg of ever RS row… The note in the corner sz inc rows "At beg of RS rows K2, M1.

I think what it means is to CO 2 sts, then knit back over them and M1. That would give you a total increase of 3 sts per row.
