increase sts in both ends of the pattern
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Annmarie,

Are you saying that you want to add a stitch on each side of this existing pattern here. I tried but I couldn't keep the pattern going. It's too much for my brain right now. Are you sure that you need to add more? The pattern looks little bit strange for me on row 5 and 7. It looks link it already has increased sts in them. Perhaps the direction states you'll need to increase sts at each side on the next 8 rows as follows. If that's the case then you don't need to do anything else just follow the pattern.

Sorry, I couldn't be much of a help.
Thanks for stopping by.
