A lace pattern for sleeves on a cardigan, I am working with has a 6 row repeat - with each RS row starting and ending with a varying number of edge stitches -
K2 K1, yo, ssk, K1, K2tog, yo K3
K4 yo, K3 K1
K2, K2tog, yo, ssk, K1, K2tog, yo, S2KP yo, ssk, K1, K2tog, yo, ssk, K2
Increases are needed every 12th row - which will occur in the first row of the lace pattern:
K2, M1, work pat to last 2 sts, M1, K2…
What happens to the edge stitches on the following rows - should they just increase by one after each increase row, Until there are enough stitches to work wth lace pattern? And then at that time, would you still include the edge stitches?
