I’m knitting the sleeves of a sweater pattern, but this part of the pattern is confusing:
[B]Working in stockinette stitch, increase 1 stitch (knit in front and in back of the same stitch) each edge now. Then increase 1 stitch each edge every 8th row 8 times and every 6th row 2 times.[/B] Work even on the 56 stitches to approximately 19 1/2 inches from beginning ending with a purl row.
I thought it meant to increase 1 on the first and last stitch of each row, both on purl and knit sides, and then on the 6th row, do a 1 stitch increase TWICE at each end, and on the 8th row, do a 1 stitch increase EIGHT times at each end, but that’s going to be a very oddly shaped sleeve. I’d done it that way, but where I am now I’m starting the 7th row, and with all the increases so far I’m already at 49, so increasing by 16 is going to put me way over the 56 stitches mentioned. Who can explain this in a less complicated way? Thanks!
