Thanks I thought that was the case. I'm knitting an aron cardigan a little ambitious for a novice but seem to be going ok! up to the sleeves now. When the stitches have been increased is that where i 'seed' stitch? so Itll be at the ends of the rows becase this then changes the pattern (if you can understand what I mean??)
Yes, at the ends of the rows is where you'll do the seed stitch. It sounds like you're making good progress. Does your pattern define seed stitch? In case it doesn't, it's k1, p1 and then on following rows you knit the purls and purl the knits.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
