Ok, so I am now working on the sleeve for this sweater and about to come face to face with some confusing lingo in this pattern. The part that I’m confused with is [COLOR=“Red”]red[COLOR=“Black”].[/COLOR][/COLOR]
I am now working on the round and doing 16 rounds and here is what it says…
'Work in rib pattern for a total of 16 rnds-piece measures about 3"(7.5cm) from beginning. [COLOR=“Red”]Increase Rnd: Kf&b, knit to last st, kf&b-2 sts increased. Work increased sts into the k4, p4 rib pattern as they become available,[COLOR=“Black”]changing to the medium circular needle if there are too many sts to fit comfortably on the shortest circular needle. [COLOR=“Red”]Work 8 rnds even. Repeat the last 9 rnds 8 more times-66sts. [COLOR=“Black”]Work even until piece measures 181/2" from beginning.
So where I’m confused is:
I get how to do kf&b from the helpful video here, but where exactly do I do this? At the beginning where I have my marker only? It says to work increased sts in a rib pattern as they become available. Is this during working 8 rounds? Do I increase in every round? And it says I am to repeat the last 9 rnds 8 more times. I want to end up with 66 sts and I’m starting with 48 so somewhere along the way I am to increase 18 sts. Thanks for any help!:?? [/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]
