What in the world does this mean? - increase knitting question
(United States Philadelphia, PA)
I am having trouble with some abbreviations for a pattern for baby leggings.
Inc 1 st at each end of 5th and 5 3: 3: 3: 2 foll 6th [8th: 10th: 10th: 12th rows, then on foll 4th 6th: -: -: - row. 55 53: 51: 53: 51 sts. Work 1 5: 5: 5: 11 rows, ending with RS facing for next row.
I understand: Increase 1 stitch at each end of 5th (row?) But what does it mean by "and 5" ?
