Hi, I’m a self-taught knitter, so I am not sure about some knitting pattern instructions. I am knitting a sweater for my younger sister for her 10th birthday in a few days, and I have finished the bottom of the sweater. I m on the sleaves and this is where I ran into a problem; the pattern states,"
Knit in rounds inc 1 st each end of rnd on 5th and every following 6th rnd until there are 44 (48-56-60-66) sts. Cont even until Sleeve measures 11½ (13-14-15½-17½) ins [29 (33-35.5-39.5-44.5) cm]."
I took this as meaning i was supposed to knit 5 rnds and increase one, and then knit 6 rnds and increase 1, and continue knitting and on each 6th round I increased 1. I knitted the whole sleeve until I realized something was wrong because my sleeve was way longer than 15 1/2 inches in length.
What was I supposed to do for the sleeve?
Many thanks, Olivia
