Vogue Pattern Help Please

My sister-in-law and I are going to knit the World Afghan in Vogue (2001?) by Kay Niederlitz.

I have the following portion of the pattern that I’m confused about and was wondering if someone could help

I follow along fine through the P3. What I don’t understand are the increases afterward. Is the pattern saying increase each side on rows 4 and 6. Then increase each side rows 8. Then increase each side on rows 10, 12, 14, 16, etc.? Basically increasing every other row (ie RS)?

Thank you so much for your help

Increase 2 in the first stitch so you have 3. Then just purl them on Row 2, the WS row. On rows 3, 5, 7 and so on, increase at the beginiing and end of every RS row.

Ah, so just increase on rows 3, 5, 7, 9 etc. until I have 39 stitches? Sheesh … why didn’t they just say that?

Thanks so much Suzee :slight_smile:

Boy, this is certainly not very clear. Here’s what I get, but it very well may be wrong: Increase on rows 4 and 6 (every other row starting from row 2); then increase on row 7 (the very weird “every row once” directive); and then increase on rows 9, 11, 13, etc. etc. for 15 rows.

VK is often referred to as ‘Vague Knitting’…

Actually I misread it and missed the every row once part, but it looks like Antares still came up with the same thing I did. Because to me that would be inc on rows 3 and 5, then row 6, then 8, 10, 12, but that puts the incs on the WS at that point. And the ‘every row once’ may be a typo, so just do the incs on the RS rows and it should be okay. Maybe. If the rest of the pattern isn’t this weird.
