I received this request from my granddaughter.
“I am working on a sweater and the instructions tell me to increase 7x1 st at both edges every six rows.
The second part is At the neck edge continue binding off 1x8 in the second row.
I have attached the pattern below
I am not sure about these instructions. Is anyone familiar with them? I have copied them below. Could it mean to increase one stitch on both sides every 6 rows repeated 7 times? that’s the only thing that makes sense to me.
Sleeve shaping: when work measures 50 cm increase 7x1 st at both edges, every 6 rows. Neckline shaping: when work measures 68-6970 cm bind off the center 16 sts and finish each half separately. At neck edge continue binding off 1x8 sts in the 2nd row. Shoulders: when work measures 70-71-72 cm bind off the rem 19-2225 sts.
Front: work same as back. Neckline shaping: when work measures 63-64-65 cm bind off the center 12 sts and finish each half separately. At neck edge continue binding off 1x3, 2x2 and 3x1 st, every 2 rows. Shoulders: bind off sts as the same length as back.
