I am now attempting my adult sweater pattern (Of the Sea by Drops Design). I think I understand all the instructions, except for one that has be befuddled in the sleeve section, which states:
Cast on 60 sts on dp needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 2 rows stockinette st, then knit rib (p3, k3) over all sts. When piece measures 10 cm, change to *K6, P6 rib as on the body - start at marker with P3 so that the marker is centered in a P6. When piece measures 11 cm increase 1 st on both sides of the P6 containing the marker every 3.5 cm a total of 12 times (knit increased sts in the rib as you go along i.e. P first 6 inc sts, knit next 6 sts) = 84. When piece measures 52 cm bind off 6 sts each side of marker + 72 sts.
My questions are:
- Do I make the 2 inc sts in the P6 with the marker?
- Do the instructions mean that on the next round after the increase I will only P6 in the P6 where the marker is and then K6 on either side which would shift the P6 K6 pattern or should I just K (7, 8, 9, etc.) to maintain the pattern?
Thanks for any input or suggestions.
