Hi, I’m trying to know a Rowan Sweater (Belle). I’ve knit the first part of the sleeve and it’s longer than I would have expected, in particular because I have a tendency to knit fairly tightly, and i’m wondering if I have the row count for increases wrong. The directions are:
K2, M1, K to last 2 sts, M1, K2
Working all sleeve increases as set by last row, inc 1 st at each end of 6th and every foll 6th ro to 58 sts, then on every foll 8th row until there are 60 sts.
In this, i have assumed that i increase in row 1. row 2 is ws, row 3 knit rs, row 4 ws, row 5 knit rs, row 6 ws purl. then I increase in row"7" starting the count all over with 1. Is that right??
And follow on, the decrease instructions are:
Cast off 2 sts at beg of next 2 rows, 56 sts.
Working all raglan decreases in same way as raglan armhole decreases, dec 1 st at each end of next and every foll alt row until 8 sts rem. --just double checking that on each RS row, i’m casting off at the beginning and the end?
