I have knit Icelandic Faire Isles for years and am trying my first Aran sweater (King Cole, Aran Book 1, Angus and Pioneer Jerseys) I am uncertain about the increases for the sleeve, can someone please interpret the last part only:
Continue in patt as now set, inc 1 st at each end of next and every foll 4th row to 79 sts, then on every foll 6th row until there are 101 sts, [that much is pretty simple, now here’s the part that’s stumping me] taking next 15 sts into diamond cable patt and them rem sts into rev st st.
Does that mean the next stitches after I reach 101?
The diamond cable is 17 stitches, not counting the rev st st on either side, which at the widest is 5 on each side, so a total of 27.
If this is a sleeve, do I do half the diamond at each end so that they match up when I sew it?
I don’t want to knit too far up, only to have to take it apart to put a diamond in somewhere…
