New Knitter - Simple Question


I am new to this forum and new to knitting (well I did some as a child and can remember the basics) and am embarking on my first knitting project - a sweater for one of my children.

I have got stuck quite early on though as I don’t understand the pattern instructions…

What does “inc 1 st at each end of 5th and every following 6th row” mean? Do I increase on row 5 then 11, 17, 23 etc or on rows 5 and 6? I’m sure it’s easy really!

Thanks in advance.


“increase on row 5 then 11, 17, 23 etc”

Hope this helps…

Lovely, thanks for your help. Just need to go off and unravel a few rows now as I’ve not done it right!
