I am currently working on a Rowan pattern and am having some issues with deciphering how to work the sleeve increases into the pattern.
The base pattern is 4 rows as follows:
Row 1: Purl.
Row 2: P1, *(K1,P1,K1) all into next st, P3tog, repeat from * to last st, P1.
Row 3: Purl.
Row 4: P1, *P3tog, (K1, P1, K1) all into next st, repeat from * to last st, P1.
It is now asking me to continue in the pattern, and to shape the sides of the sleeve by inc 1 at each end of 3rd and every following 6th row to 94 sts.
I will therefore be increasing on Row 3, then Row 1, then 3 again, then 1, 3 etc. but how do I then work rows 2 and 4. For the first few rounds at least I know to just increase the number of purl stitches at the start, but when do I go back to purling 1 at the start again? Given I have started with 58 stitches, would it be when I reach 68? I not sure I want to end up with a strip of the pattern and then a strip of purled stitches.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
