Hi - I am a complete novice and picked up a supermarket craft kit (Knitted whale) and thought this would be a good place to start. I have been able to cast on/knit and purl, thanks to You Tube but I am struggling to actually undertand what the pattern is asking me to do (attached).
For example the instruction:(k2 inc) five times (20) and (k4 inc) five times 30?
I know to increase the stitches but am not sure at what point and do I carry on and knit the entire row or just add stitches and switch to the next row instruction?
The kit says suitable for age 14+ and I am 51 so it is not doing much for my self-confidence!!
Thank you, Sara (Salisbury UK)
