I am a novice-knitter trying out something new and would really appreciate some guidance, please. I’ve started with the Rowan Charisma pattern (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/charisma-8). I had no issue doing the ribbing and the initial 4 row pattern (which forms the pattern). However, I am struggling to understand what exactly is required in the following:
“ Keeping patt correct, inc 1 st at each end of next and foll 12 alt rows, then on foll 40 rows, taking inc sts into patt and ending with WS facing for next row.
At the outset, do I immediately, in the first row, start the increase?
And then, do I increase every alternate row for the following 12 rows?
Then increase every row for the following 40 rows?
I might just add that I started with 103 stitches and no further increases were required. How do I then get to 209 stitches?
I have googled for corrections to this pattern but haven’t found anything.
