Increasing at beginning and end of row where pattern calls for slip stitches

Hi there.

First post in this group and desperately needing some help!

I have a pattern as follows:
Row 1: Slip 1, knit to end.
Row 2: Slip 1, k1b, p1 repeat to end

Keeping pattern consistent, In the next row increase at beginning and end of row. Note: do not k1b on last stitch of any row, instead k1. Increase every foll 20th row.

I’m having a lot of trouble increasing at the beginning of the row when it also calls for a slip stitch. What should I do?

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
You can increase one stitch in from the ends. You can slip the stitch, work an increase in the next stitch or knit the next stitch and pick up the bar between that k1 and the following stitch. Do a similar increase near the end of the row.

Can you tell us the name of the pattern?

Thanks for the reply, I’ve included an image of the pattern below (I’m referring to the “Beg Patt” section):

I was really wondering more about the pattern name so I could see what it looked like.

Sorry! It’s the “Flinders Men’s Cardigan” from a book bought at Spotlight (craft store in Australia)
