View Full Version : Child aran pullover pattern question

04-29-2008, 05:54 PM
I have started in on the sleeves, which are knit in seed stitch and it is time to start increasing. The pattern says "if you make you increases inside the selvedges, it will be easier to sew the seams together. On the next RS row, work 1 st in pattern, increase 1 by k1f&b, work in pattern to last 2 sts, k1f&b, work last st."

What do they mean by making the increases inside the selvedge? Where is that? I'm probably being really stupid on this, but I am confused.

then for the remaining increases it says that "you will work the increased stitches into the seed st pattern as they become established". What do they mean by this?

Thanks for the help!

They're saying to do the increase inside the outermost edge stitch (selvedge) and keep the selvedge in stockinette.

When you work the increases into the pattern on the next row, just knit or purl the new stitches as if they were always there.
