hi guys…im new on here so I’ll say hello
Anyway im currently knitting a Patons Decor Crewneck sweater pattern and have got along fine until ive come to the sleeves. The pattern reads as follows:-
With smaller needles cast on 62 sts.
Work 1½ ins [3 cm] in (K2. P2) ribbing as given for Back ending on a 2nd row and inc 19 sts evenly across last row. 81 sts.
Change to larger needles and proceed as follows:
1st row: (RS). P2. (K3. P2) twice. Work 1st row of Panel Pat B. P2. K3. P2. Work 1st row of Panel Pat C. P2. K3. P2. Work 1st row of Panel Pat B. (P2. K3) twice. P2.
2nd row: K2. (P3. K2) twice. Work 2nd row of Panel Pat B. K2. P3. K2. Work 2nd row of Panel Pat C. K2. P3. K2. Work 2nd row of Panel Pat B. (K2. P3) twice. K2.
Panel Pats are now in position.
Cont in pat, keeping cont of Panel Pats as placed in last 2 rows, inc 1 st each end of needle on next and every alt row to 91 (103-99-107) sts, then every following 4th row until there are 137 (143-143- 151) sts,[COLOR=“Purple”]taking inc sts into (K3. P2) pat.[/COLOR][/COLOR]
I dont quite understand the bit above in purple…does it mean i have to continue with just the k3,p2 increase? Surely the pattern needs to be incorporated into the increase somewhere?? Im so confused…Ive tinkered over it now for the last few days and just cant work it out…im confused because of the k3,p2 twice at beginning and end of each row???
can anybody help me please?
A very confused angie
