Need help in translation!

hi everyone–

i’ve got the front and back to DS’s sweater (my first!) done! but…in starting the sleeves, i’m reading and confusing myself…can you help?

the directions state:

"CO 24 sts; work in St st and Shape Sleeve: Inc 1 st each side EOR 6(3, 3, 3, 2) times, then every 4 rows…

my question…do i immediately start in on the increase? very first row? or do i knit in st st (for how long???) before increasing???

thanks so much!


If that’s the first instruction right after CO, then yes, increase on the first row.


Thanks so much! i confuse myself at times!
