I’m converting a needle knit pattern to a loom knit pattern.
I’m supposed to cast on 10 stitches. Then row 1 reads: K1, inc1 to last stitch, k1 (18 stitches
Do I add 8 more stitches to row 1 to go from the original CO 10 to get 18?
Hi! According to the information you provided my answer would be yes. Can you provide a link, or name so we can see the actual pattern?
I’m guessing it should be written to indicate that k1, inc1 is to be repeated.
(k1, inc1) rpt to last st, k1
*k1, inc1 rpt from * to last st, k1
Hi and welcome!
Yes, you need to increase one stitch in each of the 8 middle stitches. You have 10sts cast on and the 2 end sts are knits. In order to get the 8stitch increase, you need to increase in each of those 8 middle stitches for a total of 18sts.
For hand knitting you could do a knit front and back (kfb), or a knit right loop or knit left loop (krl, kll). Does that work for a loom?
