I’m a basic knitter and I purchased a pattern today for a layette afgan that looked like something I could handle. However, I’ve run into a problem with the pattern already. Following the pattern I have 163 stitches on my needle after 3 rows the pattern reads:
ROW 4: K2, P2, K2: * P4, P2 tog tbl, YO, P1, increase, P1, YO, P2 tog, P4, K2; repeat from * across until last 4 stitches, P2, K2: 172 stitches.
I’m having problems figuring out the “increase” above. The only type of increase they refer to in the instructions is a YO, so I’m not sure if the “increase” should just be another YO or something else. I’ve worked this row several times using a YO but I keep ending up with the wrong number of stitches.
Any tips? The pattern is called Lilac Loveliness ing the book Our Best Knit Baby Afghans published by Leisure Arts.
