Pattern HELP

Hi I am new to this web site and have been knitting off and on for awhile. However I am no pro by any means, but I like a challenge. I am kn this sweater for my granddaughter and it is from cuff to cuff. Part of the pattern increases this way: ( I need help interpreting it)
Inc 1 st at each end of 4th and (19) fill 6th rows, then on 4(10) fill 4th rows, then on fill 7 alt rows, taking inc its into g st. 140 it’s. I started with 66 stitches. I only put into parentheses the numbers that applied to the size I want. If anyone can help me that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum!
What is the name of your pattern and designer?
These are always interesting patterns to work and especially with a granddaughter in mind.

The increases at each end of the row start on row 4. Increase then on rows 10, 16,22,28,34,40,46,52,58 and so on up to and including row 118. Then increase on rows 122,126,130,134,138,142,146,150,154 and 158. Final increases are on rows 160,162,164,166,168,170 and 172.

I started row four with 66 stitches and I have to end with 140 stitches, before I get to the side seem.

It is in a Rowan book pattern Popham

1 on row 4
19 foll 6th
10 foll 4th
7 foll alt.

That adds up to 37 inc rows and at 2sts increased per row, that’s 74sts increased.
66 + 74 = 140sts
You should be on track with those numbers. Have fun with the sweater which is lovely.

Thank you so much you are fantastic. I love science but not so much math. I have never done the wrapping and turning, but I watched a video on it.

You’re very welcome. And well done on your part to learn wrap and turn, another new technique. Enjoy making this clever, pretty sweater. It’s sure to be a hit!
