I’m currently knitting Athena by Marie Wallin in Rowan All Seasons Chunky.
I’m really struggling with this section and would like to know if I am to increase at both the beginning of the knit and purl rows…I’ve only ever increased on knit rows.
“Cast on 4 sets at beg of next 2 rows, then 5 sets at beg of roll 2 rows, then 13 sets at beg of roll 2 rows, taking cast-on sets into st st.” (109 sts total)
I’ve already ripped back a ton because casting on at the beginning of each purl row just didn’t look right to me…
I have 65 sts on my needles currently and there should be a total of 44 cast on sts once the instructions have been followed….the math works out and I think It should be 22 sts cast on each side.
If I am to increase on the purl rows, is there a specific type of cast on I should use when on a purl row? I think I was doing PFB to increase on a purl row if I remember correctly.
