Hello everyone! I'm very new to knitting, and so far I've only ever knit a simple brioche stitch scarf. I'm trying to knit a vest, and I'm afraid I've run into a little problem with understanding the pattern. Here are the first few lines of the pattern:
Cast on 123 sts.
Row 1: K1, [p1, k1] to end.
Row 2: P1, [k1, p1] to end.
Rep the last 2 rows 11 times more and row 1 again.
Inc row: Rib 28, *M1, [rib 1, M1] 5 times, rib 16; rep from * twice more, M1, [rib 1, M1] 5 times, rib 27. (147 sts)
When I try to do the inc row my stitches don't add up - I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong because I'm sure I'm following the pattern to the T! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
