INC Question

Hello! I am new to this site and started learning to knit as an adult, so I am working through patterns. This one pattern states this:

“Taking care INCS into double moss stitch, cont in pattern, inc in this way at each end of 11(11:17) fill 6th rows. 91(103:115 sets.
Pattern 9 rows”

I am not sure where to increase or how to read this (included a picture). Any help would be so appreciated.

Thank you very much,


Welcome to the forum!
You’re going to be increasing at each end of the row. This row shows you where to make the increases using knit front and back (kfb):
Inc row (right side) Kfb, work in pattern to the last 2sts, kfb, k1. Call this row, row 1.
Then the increases will be on rows 7,13,19,25,31,37,43,49,55,61 and 67 for the first two sizes. If you’re working the 3rd size you would continue the increases on rows 73,79,85,91,97 and 103.
All the increases will be on right side (as opposed to wrong side) rows.

Just in case you’d like to see it, here’s a video for kfb:

Thank you for your welcome and assistance! I truly appreciate it :-). I grew up crocheting since I was four but loving knitting as well :-).

That’s so great to be able to work both knitting and crochet. Enjoy working the rest of your pattern.
