Deciphering written pattern

Hi all,

This is from a free pattern for Knitted Hen Jackets. It’s a Brit pattern, but I’m not sure if that’s the problem, or if there are some typos or something else:

“Inc 1 st at each end of every fol 6th row…”

and:

“Work 6 rows straight, change to gst and k 4 rows.”

Any help here would really, really help!
Thanks,

“Inc 1 st at each end of every fol 6th row…” means to work 5 rows in your stitch pattern and then on the next row, the 6th, increase at each end of the row and contiue to do this x many times or until you reach a certain stitch number. So, for example, increase on rows 6,12,18, 24 etc.

“Work 6 rows straight, change to gst and k 4 rows.” means to continue your stitch pattern without any increases or decreases for 6 rows and then change to garter stitch and knit the next 4 rows.

Salmonmac explained it well - just wanted to add it’s not UK pattern terminiology, but commonly used in many patterns.

Thanks–I figured it probably was just my issue, not a Brit issue! :slight_smile:

Thank you so much!!! This means those hens are going to get some great jackets!
Thanks again for your great help!

Oh please do post a picture of the finished jackets and on a model if possible?
