I’m working on a matinee jacket in a 0-3mo size.
I’m at the sleeves…I started with 23 stitches on my needle and did 4 row in garter. I then did 2 rows in seed stitch. The rest of the sleeve will be done in seed stitch.
Using size 6 needels, cast on 23 sts.
Work 4 rows in garter st.
1st row (WS): K1, *p1, K1; rep from *to end.
1st row repeated forms the seed stitch.
The part that I’m not sure what it’s telling me is next:
Cont in seed st inc 1 st at each of next row and every foll 4th row to 37 sts.
I was thinking that this meant increase one stitch at the end of the very next row, row 7 and the each 4th row. I need to cont in seed stitch until it is 4 3/4 inches. If I only increase every 4th row, I wont get to 37 stitches for 6 ro 7 inches…
I do feel like I’m an accomplished knitter, just confused on the wording of this pattern.
What do you think?
Thanks for your help.
