My pattern says
First increase round of four, second increase round of four, third etc
What does “round of four” mean?

Knitting jumper Increase round of four
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Kerrie,

I haven't heard or seen this direction until today. Are you knitting a jumper from the top down? It seems to me that you have four areas to increase in a round which is common in a top down sweater.

So, I think it just refers to the increasing rounds. Each increasing round should have four areas that need to increase.

Have fun knitting!
