I’m usually okay with increase instructions but this has got me stumped. In particular “repeat increase alternately on every 4th and 2nd”.
The back of the sweater (I have not done the front)
80 stitches on the needle
I understand the cast on to 84.
Then work 1 row straight
Then increase (2nd row) each end (86 sts)
Increase 1 st each end 17 times (2×17=34. 34 + 86=120)
I understand the stitch count but not the row numbers is it just every other row?? Can’t be can it? Or is it the 4th row then 2nd row then 4th row then 2nd row etc?
If I’ve done the first inc on row 2 then 6, 8, 12, 14, 18, 20, 24, 26…
Text from the pattern:
Continue in stocking st. When piece measures 17-18-19-20-21-22 cm, cast on 2 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows = 84-90-96-104-114-124 sts (incl 1 edge st in each side). Insert 1 marker in each side for assembly. Work in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side – AT THE SAME TIME inc on 2nd row as follows: Inc 1 st inside 1 edge st in garter st in each side. Repeat inc alternately on every 4th and 2nd row 17-17-18-18-19-19 more times = 120-126-134-142-154-164 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker in each side for assembly.
Thank you for helping
