Help with pattern instructions
Hi everyone

I need a little help deciphering a sweater pattern I am working on.

1) If the pattern says "continue pattern until beg measures X inches, ending with a WS row" - does this mean I finish KNITTING a wrong row so that the next row would be right side facing, or does it mean to end after a RS row so that the next row I start with will be WRONG SIDE facing? (I hope this makes sense)

2) (starting with 32 stitches on a row) "....inc 1 st each end of next and every following 10th row until there are 38 sts, then on every following 12th row until there are 46 sts."
I am confused about the 12th row situation. This is what I have Row 10 - increased by 2 stitches (=36), Row 20 - increased by 2 stitches (=38) .....
then do I increase again at Row 24, 36, 48, etc. (which would be every 12th row if you count from Row 1);
OR do I increase every 12th row from ROW 20 (which would make it Row 32, 44, etc).....

I hope this isn't too confusing.

Thanks for your help!

Yes, finish the WS row; the next instruction will be for a RS row.

On the next row inc, then on every 10th row after than until you have 38 sts. There will be your first row, then 2 more 'every 10th row' increase rows. Then change to inc on every 12 row until you have 48 sts which should be another 5 inc rows.

For the increase rows: You will knit 9 rows then increase on the 10 - do that 2 more times. Then, you'll be increasing every 12th row. Start counting rows from that point - knit 11 rows, increase on the 12th.

The first increase is actually on the next row, which may or may not be the 10th. But after that 9 rows are knit and the inc is done on the 10th row - twice more.
