Increasing in a knit/purl row

Back again for some expert advice please. I’ve just started the sleeves of a baby cardigan and now have the instruction to increase 1 st at each end of every 6 rows, 6 times. Does this mean the actual 6th row? If it does it’s rather awkward as this means the increases occur twice on row 2 of the garter pattern which starts with a knit stitch (rest of the row purl). I’ve started by increasing with 2 x knit stitches but this looks wrong on the right side if you see what I mean!

I think it means that on your sixth row you add one stitch, on your 12th row you add one stitch, on your 17th row, etc. I’m not sure if this is what you mean, but because a baby cardigan is pretty large this could potentially be what it means. I agree that the wording was quite confusing there though! There a good chance I misunderstood, but I hope a was of help :slight_smile:

Make these increases starting on a row that we’ll call row 1. Increase on rows 1,7,13,19,25 and 31. Those are all odd number rows and can be either a pattern row 1 or 3. Remember that you’re increasing 2sts per increase row, one at the beginning of the row and one at the end.

Many thanks for the replies, the every 6 rows is confusing but if I increase on the odd rows as advised life will be much easier!
