Pattern Help - Stockinette and Increasing
I'm working on a baby sweater and I'm confussed by their language, specifically for the sleeves. The instructions are:
Cast on 17 (21-21) sts. Knit 3 rows (garter st), noting 1st row is WS and inc 1 st at center of last row. 18 (22-22) sts.
Proceed in stocking st, inc 1 st each end of next and every following 6th (6th-4th) row until there are 26 (30-34) sts.
Cont even for 7½ (8½-9½)" [19 (21.5-24) cm] total length, ending with a purl row. Cast off.
And the questions are:
- When I "proceed in stocking" (stockinette) am I starting that row, which would be the 4th row of the sleeve, with a knit or a purl to begin stockinette?
- Where it says, "inc 1 st each end of next and every following 6th row . . . " does that mean that I increase in the next row I knit, which would be the first row of stockinette, or do I knit 5 rows of stockinette and then increase for the first time on the 6th row?
Thank you for your help!!
