Thanks to NancyO on the KnitChat I think I may have the answer to this question, but I’d love to hear what others have to say too (even though I’m going to try what Nancy said).
OK… I’m working a panel from a sweater that is going to be cabled. It’s started me off with 31 stitches that I’m working in a (RS) K3P2 pattern for two inches. Then, I’m to
“increase to 40 sts evenly across last row and ending with RS facing.”
Clearly I’m to add these 9 stitches on the WS of the work so that I end on the RS. I want to know the following:
[li]What type of increase do I use (NancyO suggested a Kfb increase)?
[/li][li]How do I space 9 increase stitches across 31 original stitches?
[/li][li]How to I make certain the rib pattern doesn’t get screwed up when I go to work the cables that grow from the ribs?
I know it’s what I get for using a free pattern from the Internet. It’s my first sweater, and I’m just testing pieces of it at this point (thank goodness I haven’t bought all the yarn yet!).
