The pattern is for a classic throw..called Cables and bobbles... starts with 198 stitches, asks you to increase to 230 stitches. Here is what it says:
K10,*Knit in front and back of next stK4, Knit in front and back of next st twice,K5; repeat from * to last 10 sts, Knit in front and back of next st, K9 - 230 sts.
Each increase = 2 stitches.
10 + 2
4 + 2
4 + 2
now you have 204 stitches on needle.
At the end you need to have last 10 stitches + 2 increase
So you would have 206 stitches on the needle, looking to go to 230 so you need to increase 24 stitches.
Based on the instructions you would increase 6 stiches for every 13 stitches knitted. You would have your extra 34 new stitches well before the row was complete.
Am I reading this incorrectly?
