Increasing 1 stitch at each end of needle
Pattern is for a dog sweater and reads "inc 1 st each end of needle on 3rd and each of the following next 4 rows." If I increase 2 stitches on a row, I believe that the pattern of Row 1: K4 *P1. K5. Rep from * to last 4 sts. P1. K3. Row 2: P4. *K1. P5. Rep from * to last 4 sts. K1. P3. , will not be correct ( sitting above each other). The way I read the pattern doesn't include the extra stitches or that I need not worry that the pattern of knitting P1 & K5 as well as K1 P5 sit above each other.
I always think I can do anything, but, I really am still learning.
No, if you add or take away sts you can't start the row with the first st of the pattern, you need to keep it lined up, so will start with a different stitch. So if you're on Row 1, you would k5, then p1, k5 across and end with p1, k4. Row 2 would be p5 and k1, p5 across, ending with k1, p4. After the next inc, add the single st - row 1 is p1 k5 and ends with p1, k4; row 2 would be k1, p5, and end with k1, p5. And so on.
