# folklore cardigan help

hi so i started knitting the folklore cardigan and i’m not sure what this means:

Shape Sleeve
Row 1 (Increase Row – RS): K1, work in Moss St as established over next 0 (2, 4) sts, M1, work in patterns as established to last st, M1, work in Moss St as established over next 0 (2, 4) sts, k1 – 46 (50, 54) sts.
Keeping first and last st in Garter st for selvedges, work in patterns as established AND rep Increase Row every 6th row 9 (7, 5) more times, then every 4th row 6 (10, 16) times.
Incorporate increased sts into patterns as follows:
Work first set of increases (6 sts) in Left Cable, second set of increases (4 sts) in Narrow Left Cable, third set of increases (6 sts) in Left Cable, then work any rem increased sts in Moss St – 76 (84, 96) sts.
Keeping first and last st in Garter st for selvedges, work even in patterns as established until piece measures about 18 (18, 19) in. (45.5 (45.5, 48.5) cm) from beg, end with a WS row as the last row you work.

more specially, i’m confused about the part where you increase every 6th and 4th row. do you increase every 6th AND 4th row simultaneously? or do you increase every 6th row 9 times THEN increase every 4th row 6 times?

also, what do you do with the increase stitches before you have enough for the new cable stitches? do you just knit them?

thanks in advance sorry this was a lot

Welcome to the forum!

Increase every 6th row for the number given for your size (9 more times for the smallest size) then when those increases are complete, increase every 4th row for the given number (6 more times for the smallest size).

You could incorporate the increases into the cables as given and work the sts as knit or purl. When you have enough for a cable, work the cable pattern otherwise just work the potential cable in stockinette. Or you could do as this knitter and work the increase sts in Moss pattern.
