My pattern keeps increasing!

Ok Girls Here is the pattern

Scarf Pattern (multiple of 3 + 1)
Row 1: Slip 1 as if to knit, *p 2, K1; rep from *across
Row 2: Slip 1 as if to purl, *k 2, p1; rep from *across
Row 3: Slip 1 as if to knit, knit across
Row 4: Slip 1 as if to Purl, Purl Across

Cast on 16 sts. Work 70 repeates of Scarf Pattern. Bind Off. Cut 72 12" lengths of yarn; knt along one long side for fringe

everytime i do the 4 rows it keeps increasing…is it supposed to do that??

soon it wont fit on my needle…help!!!

There are no increases in that pattern, so it shouldn’t change size.

I suspect that you’re not consistently moving the yarn between the needles to the front to purl and back again to knit. :thinking: You’ll give yourself yarn over increases if you work the next stitch with the yarn in the wrong place.
