I am setting up the raglan as follows:
Row 1 (WS): Purl, pm as follows, 2 front sts, pm, 1 raglan seam st, pm, 9 sleeves sts, pm, 1 raglan seam st, pm, 41 back sts, pm, 1 raglan seam st, pm, 9 sleeve sts, pm, 1 raglan seam st, pm, 2 front sts
Row 2 (RS): *knit to marker, YO, slip marker, k1, slip marker, YO; rep from across, then knit to end
[I]Continuing in St st, working a YO before & after marked st [every other row] 27 more times and at the same time inc 1 st at each neck edge [every 4th row] 18 times, then [every other row] 17 times.[/I]
What I did was wrote up to 27 rows on a piece of paper and on every other row I wrote down YO to remind when I need to do this, so I actually have 13 rows where I have YO’s. Now when I do this I inc every 4th row 18 times at the same time as I am doing the YO, (this is where I get confused) do I just go up to the 18th row or do I inc every 4th row going beyond the 27 rows & if I have calculated correctely it would be 72 rows in the pattern until I have increased 1 stitch 18 times, and once I have done that I would do the ST st 34 more times to do the 1 incr every other row, making it a total of 106 rows.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the pattern says to inc at neck edges by working M1 inc after 1st st and before last st, but where is the neck edge? I should mention that I am using circular needles but knitting back & forth as you would on straight needles.
Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!
