Rowan Marcie pattern

I am knitting the sleeve and don’t understand this section… inc1 st at each end of next [3rd:5th:5th:next:next] and 6[7:7:8:7:8] foll 6th rows.
I am knitting size 5 yr old so do I inc st in the 5th row and then 8 lots of 6th row? That would give me the correct stitch count but a long sleeve.

Welcome to KH!

Yes, that’s right. Increase in the 5th row and then every 6th row after that until you’ve worked 8times or you get to the given stitch count. (rows 5 then 11,17,23,29,35,41,47,53)

If you think based on your row gauge that the sleeve will be too long you can always increase more frequently. You could increase every 4th row or alternate every 4th then 6th then 4th and so on.

Love this group :heart:
