Increasing when knitting Sleeves

by Lorraine Bell
(Wellington, New Zealand)


A lot of instuctions for knitting sleeves say something like this:
Inc 1 st at each end of 1st and every foll 4th row.
Does this mean I increase 4 stitches every 4 rows or just 2, once every 4th row?

Hell Lorraine,

"Inc 1 st at each end of 1st and every foll 4th row."

This means you increase 1 st at each end on the next row (count at 1st row) and then increase at each end again on every 4 rows.

So, your work would look like this;

next row (row 1): inc
row 2-3: work even
row 4: inc
Row 5-7: work even
Row 8: inc
Row 9-11: work even
Row 12: inc

and so forth until you reach the number of stitches required or as many time as instruct.

Thank you for your question.
Take care,

Ratcha
