Should I increase every row?
outline of a vest pattern showing increasing front neck area
I'm making pretty v neck vest with buttons in front.
Could you tell me if Im reading the instructions correctly?
Cast on 84 sts
Beg with Row 1 of pattern, and marking end of Row 1 for neck edge, inc 1 st at neck edge (every row) 32 times. (116 sts) Work even for 4-1/2 inches
Row 1: with MC, purl
Row 2: with Mc, knit
Row 3: with CC, k3 *sl 1 wyib, k1, rep from *, end K1
Row 4: with CC, k2 *sl 1 wyif, k1, rep from * , end k2
Row 5: with MC, k2, *yo, k2 tog, rep from *' k2
Row 6: with MC, purl
Repeat row 1to row 6
If i increase every row 32 times, i would have 276 sts!Answer
I googled the pattern and found the vest. It looks very pretty.
You only need to increase at one side which is the the end of row 1 or the beginning of row 2 and so forth (see my poor drawing picture above). If you did this for 32 times, you should gain 32 more sts. And that should add up to 116 sts. Go ahead and knit for 32 rows with one end increase and see what happens.
Have fun with your vest!
