Pattern Help

I’m working on Matthew Gnagy’s Cable and Cowl Sweater. Before the underarm increase, the pattern says to increase every 4 rows ending with a WS row. However, if I do this and then add the additional stitches needed for the underarms, I’ll be cabling on the wrong side of the garment. Can you please help me do this correctly?

Let me know if you need any other details.


INCREASE FOR UNDERARMS Inc 1 st each edge every other row 4 times, Continuing cable panels and moss stitch as established, 64 (68, 76, 84, 96) sts, end with a WS row.

Shape Sleeves Cast on 28 sts—92 (96, 104, 112, 124) sts. Row 1: p1, k1, p2, k2, p4, k2, p2, k2, p4, k2, p2, k2, p4, k2 work across next 60(64, 72, 80, 92) sts, cast on 28 sts—120 (124, 132, 140, 152) sts. Row 2: k1, p1, k2, p2, 2/2 RC, p2, k2, p2, 2/2 RC, p2, k2, p2, 2/2 LC, p2, work in established patterns to end.

Continue evenly in established patterns for 5 1/2 (6, 6 1/2, 6 1/2, 7) in. (14 (15, 16.5, 16.5, 18) cm), end with a WS row.

This does seem be written wonky, so I’d do a RS row the go to R1 to work the cable pattern as you have been. You can CO the sts do the RS row, CO sts and work R 1, then just do row 2 as written.
