It's an increase of 2sts every 8th row. That way the sleeves will be symmetrical and it will end with 47sts

But I made a bit of a mistake. Pls help me to sort it out. Sothe above instruction was to start with the rd because it said end with ws. Soo I did that but just want to know that the 8th row wud that mean that the WS wud be facing me.

Increase on that one, work 7 rows, then increase on the next row, the 8th one. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

You can either do that or use 3-needle bind off which is also shown in video on the Tips page under Free Videos at the top of the page.

I think a 3 needle BO is a little more sturdy, maybe not needed for a baby sweater, but it's pretty cool. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
