Help With Pattern - Inc 1 st at each side on 5th and following 6th row

(Singapore)


I'm working on the sleeve for a cardigan, didn't follow this part of the pattern a bit confused.

"working in stocking stitch (throughout) inc 1 st at each end of the 5th and every following 6th row to 50 sts"

Does this mean, i increase a stitch on either side of the 5th row AND 6th the counting from there?

There's an increase on the 5th row of 8 which forms the pattern (sleeves) but then says to inc on 3rd and every following 6th row. That's fine, but do I continue to increase on 5th row as well?

-----

yes, keep the 5th row as it is because it is a part of the 8 row-pattern. Changing it will compromise the pattern.

Thanks for the question.

Help please
by: Joy

Hi,

My pattern says cont in garter st and taking extra sts into garter st as they occur - increase 1 St at each end of the row and 8th following 6th row 42( 44,46) St.
It's for the sleeve.
Can you please help with this?
Not sure how to interpret it.

Thank you

---
Increase 1 stitch at each end of the row: You make an increase at the beginning and the end of the next row.

On the 8th and following 6th rows: This means that after you've increased on the first row, you'll continue knitting even rows without increases until you reach the 8th row, where you'll increase again.

Then, you'll knit 5 more rows without increases (6 rows total) and increase again on the 6th row after the previous increase. Repeat the increase every 6th row until you reach the number of stitches of your size.

Hope this helps,

Ratcha

Increase
by: Anonymous

Hi, my pattern asks me to increase 1stitch on each side every 2cm what does the mean?

--------

It means you do an increase on each end on the next row then work even for 2cm and then do another increase. Repeat the process until further instruction.

Another shaping sleeve top question
by: Kathleen

So confusing….
Dec 1 st at each end (as before) of every 8th row (0) times, 6th row (0) times, 4th row (3)times, alt row (8) times, each row (0) times.

I’ve only included the decrease number for my size. The other sizes have different numbers of Dec.

I see in other comments you made, skip the ones with zero and do the rows with a number. If I understand that correctly, I should do 4 rows Dec 3x and the alt row 8 times.

Is this correct? Thank you!

Help please, I am so confused
by: Julie

My pattern reads the following

Inc 1 st at each end of 5th(7th: 7th: 7th: 7th) and 6(0: 0: 0: 0) foll 6th rows, then on 1(7: 8: 7: 7) foll 8th rows, then on 0(0: 0: 2: 3) foll 10th rows. 49(53: 57: 61: 67) sts

I am doing the largest size, I just can't seem to grasp what to do


-------------

Hi Julie,

First inc a st on each end of the 7th row one time,
then skip the next section since it's 0 time,
Then inc a st on each end of every 8 rows for 7 times,
Then inc every 10 rows 3 times. You should end up with67 sts.

Have fun knitting!

Sleeve pattern says increase at each end on 5th and following 10th rows. Does this mean 5th and the count 10 or every fifth row?


----------

Do increase on the 5 th row and then increase every 10 rows after that.

increasing and working into patt 1 st at each end of 3rd and every foll 4th rows
by: Ratchadawan

You almost got it. You increase on the 3rd row, then increase every
4th rows after the 3rd row. So it will be like this;

3rd row: increase
4th-6th: work even
7th: increase
8th-10th: work even
11th: increase
and continue like increase every 4th rows like that until you have 83 sts.

Knitting Pattern
by: Anonymous

Hello there!
Can you help me understand this pattern:

Continue in patt as given for back, increasing and working into patt 1 st at each end of 3rd and every foll 4th rows to 83 sts

Does that mean I need to increase in every 3rd and 4th row? for example,
3rd row (increase)
4th row (increase
5th - 6th row work even in pattern)
7th row (increase)
8th row (increase)
10th - 11th row (work even in pattern)

Is it like that?

Increasing
by: Ratchadawan

Hi,

It means to increase 1 st at each end of the 5th row one time (right side). Then after that, you do increases on each side every 6th row until you have a total of 50 sts. All the inc rows should all be on the right side.

Thanks for visiting and sending in your question.

Enjoy your project!
