Quick Pattern Question
I have a pattern for a really neat afghan that I want to do. The pattern is marked as "easy". However I have a question/thought and wanted ya'lls advice.

The pattern states the following:

Cast on 197 sts.
Knit 4 rows, inc 26 sts evenly across 4th row, 223 sts.

If I understand it correctly, I would need to add a stitch after every 7th sts? using a yarn forward? (197/26)

I confused...... very

That sounds about right, but I wouldn't use a yarn forward to increase unless the pattern tells you to do that. Yarn forward (aka yarn over) makes an eyelet. Here's a bunch of increases that might work better.

I wouldn't use a yarn forward either. I normally use a knit in front and back if they don't specify a type of increase.
