A post was split to a new topic: Rib in knitting patterns

On the sleeve, pattern says increase one stitch each end of next row and following 4th rows until there are 81 sts. Does this mean every 4th row?

Yes, increase one stitch each end on the next row, call it row 1 and then on rows 5,9,13,17 and so on until 81sts.

Thank you


Hello, just found this site and though I have been knitting for many years I often have problems understanding patterns. Usually I manage to decipher them but sometimes not!

Hello, I just found out about this website, and am very excited. I am a self-taught left-handed knitter, I just held a booklet up to the mirror. From the many websites I have searched, it seems I knit a bit differently. I keep the yarn in my left hand, as well as holding my working needle in it as well. Nevertheless, I seem to be able to manage simple things, hats in the round mostly. Hope I can learn as well as hope to be able to contribute as my skill develops.

Hi. I live in Winnipeg. I used to knit a lot; mostly sweaters for myself and my daughters and baby outfits. I lost interest about 20 years ago, but now I’m back doing small items such as Barbie and doll clothes and balaclavas for preschoolers.
