I’m a beginner knitter looking to make my first jumper and I have got confused with some of the terms used. I am working on a pattern by Rowan called Bev, it’s from the Rowan Loves book.
I’ve worked the initial six rows of garter, and then rows 1 to 4 which form the basic knit pattern, the first row has two increases.
It goes on to say - “These 4 rows set g st pip pattern and side seam shaping. Working inc sts into pattern, inc sts as set at each end of next and 2 following 4th rows, then on 1 foll alt row.”
It’s here I get confused! I’m starting with 93sts and need to increase to 103sts.
After my first attempt the pattern was going diagonal rather than in straight vertical lines!
Any translation, guidance would be much appreciated x
