LLinc on Row 1?


#1

Hi all.

I’m confused. This pattern asks me to do a LLinc on row one. How can I do that just after a cast on row?

Also, as I understand it an LLinc needs me to increase into the second stitch under the one I’ve just worked. In the tutorial given on the designer’s website for this pattern she explains that I must:
“Insert the left needle up into closest bump directly under the right needle.” Is the increase only worked this way for garter stitch?

I should add that on the written pattern she describes the increase as I initially described (working into the second stitch under the first one worked)!

What is the name of your pattern?
I agree that it’s going to be difficult to work the recommended increase here. Use a different increase for this first row, a knit front and back (kfb) or a M1.
Here’s the video I use for the KRL and KLL:
