  1. it wants you to do ribbing did that now dec. ok do do it now or knit a row.
    2then they want you to inc.at each side every 8th row do you cout the frist row or do you increase on the 9th row:grphug:
    thanks wimpy

I don’t understand the sentence on #1.

To increase you the 8th one is the one to increase on -

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8 increase
1
2
3
etc…

You can decrease on the row after the ribbing. For the inc every 8th row, follow Jan’s chart.
