How do I understand this instruction on a knitting pattern?

by Lou
(Sydney)

Next Row - Rib 1, * inc in next st, rib 9; rep from * e times more, inc in next st, rib 2, 104 sts.

I have no idea how to read this. I understand that I'm increasing the stitches to 104 but not sure exactly in what way.

Kindest Regards,
Lou

How do I understand this instruction on a knitting pattern?
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Lou,

First of all, I have to say I'm very sorry for getting back so late. I needed some time off and went away without work and the internet for a while. Maybe, by now you might have had figured this problem out.

You asked how to work this;

"Rib 1, * inc in next st, rib 9; rep from * e times more, inc in next st, rib 2, 104 sts."


This is to increase stitches while working in ribbing.

First, you check the instruction to see what your rib pattern is (k1,p1 or k2, p2, ect..). You need to make sure that your ribbing is in the correct form while increasing.

You start out this row with work 1 st in rib (or k1 if your rib starts with k1), Then work 1 increase on the 2nd stitch, then work the rib for 9 sts. Then you will need to repeat what is in*-* e? times more, and then increase again in the next st, and work in the rib pattern on the last 2 sts, you should end up with 104 sts altogether.

I hope this makes sense.
Thanks for sending in the question.

Ratcha
