How to read a knitting pattern
by Anne gibney
Can you explain the following instructions in a simpler way?
The knitting pattern asks me to Inc 1 st at each end of 5th and 5 foll 10th.Answer
This is the way I understand it. First, you work 4 rows. On row 5, you then increase one stitch at the beginning and one st at the end (you now gain 2 sts). *Then work 9 more rows without any increase until you come to the beginning of row 10. Increase one stitch at each end of row 10.* This will be the 1st increase of every 10th row. Work from *_* 4 more times to get total of 5 times increases for every 10th row.
You should have total of 6 times increases altogether with a total of 12 stitches gain.
I hope I don't confuse you too much. Have fun with your knitting and thanks for visiting.
Have a wonderful day!
