Increase help

I’m working on a pattern that says “increase 1st at beg and end of next row and 5 following 8th rows”. What does that mean? I have 104 stitches on the needle and after increases are done i should have 116 stitches.

Often when you increase in a stitch you KFB. Does the pattern not suggest an increase? Please post a link and pattern name if possible. Don’t post the pattern here it’s a copyright violation.

The pattern is a download from the website Revelry. The pattern name is called “Barbara”. It’s a sweater top. I just want to know what the instructions mean. I’m not posting the whole pattern.

If you call the next row, row 1, increase on that row and on rows 9,17,25,33, and 41. Two increases per increase row will add the 12sts you need.

I wasn’t accusing you of posting the pattern, but I’m sorry if it came off that way. Some people do post them and we just have to be careful. I saw several patterns named Barbara so can’t post the link, but it looks like you got your answer. :slight_smile:

Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate it It makes sense
now. I think the wording threw me off on the last part of the instruction.
I understood that I was to increase the first row at each end, but didn’t
understand the “5 following the 8th rows”.

Thanks again

I understand. Thank you for responding and clearing up the confusion I had
on the instructions.
