Help with pattern
I am knitting a Debbi Bliss sweater, Basket Weave Jacket. I am confused how to knit the sleeves. The pattern for the body is a 10 row pattern, but the sleeves are a two row pattern. The direction for the sleeves are Row 1 k4p4, Row 2 purl and at end of 5th row increase at both ends and every 4th row until there are 56 stitches working increases into pattern. I don't understand how this can make a basket weave stitch. Since you begin with a knit stitch and end with a purl stitch what should the increase be, knit or purl?
