New to knitting, help needed with sleeve shaping

Hi everyone,

I’m new to knitting and currently working on the Dream jumper by Rowan Mode. The sleeves have cabling detail worked in the center 12 stitches with a garter stitch border.

The pattern for the sleeve after the ribbed cuff reads:

Row 1 (RS): K6(6,6,7,7), C12B, K6(6,6,7,7)
Row 2 (WS): K6(6,6,7,7), P12, K6(6,6,7,7).
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: K6(6,6,7,7), P12, K6(6,6,7,7).
Row 5: K6(6,6,7,7), C12B, 6(6,6,7,7).
Row 6: K6(6,6,7,7), P12, K6(6,6,7,7).
Row 7: Knit.
Row 8: K6(6,6,7,7), P12, K6(6,6,7,7).

Rows 1 to 8 form cable panel patt over centre 12 sts with g st border at each side.
Next row (RS): Kfb, patt to last st, Kfb.

Cont in patt, working inc as set above, inc 1 st at each end of every following 6th (6th,6th,8th,8th) row to 38 sts.

I’m confused how to work the increase into the pattern - do I simply keep the cable pattern the same (C12B) and increase the garter on either side? Or will the cables increase too? Thank you for any advice!

Your cable pattern in the centre will stay the same, you will be increasing the garter stitch on either side. Hope this helps :slight_smile:
