Hi all, I am in desparate need of some pattern help. I tokk this to my LYS yesterday, and the lady helped me, but I am still left scratching my head. I am doing the sleeves, and here is what Sally says…Cast on 46 sts. Work a 2x2 rib pattern for 4 rows. Maintain stitch pattern through all shaping(pg. 111)
Next(increase) row (RS) K2, work into st below next st plus into next st(lifted increase, page 67), work to 3 sts remaining, work lifted increase in next st, K2. (She also says on pg. 67 that you can do a front & back increase which I would prefer to do).
Work 5 rows straight.
Repeat last 6 rows to 78 sts.
I just do not understand these increases and the rib pattern. The YS lady told me that my first row after my 1st increase, I would do K2, P3, knit rib until last 3 sts, and then do P3, K2.
Then my next rows after increase would be K2, P4, and so on.
Then my next increase would be K2, P2, k inc, P2.
It is just so confusing. Now that I look at it wrote out this way, it doesn’t seem so bad. Does this sound right to you???
Thank you so much!!
