Increase? Using the bar in between stitch..
I'm wondering about this increase...

ok, row 15 (Buttonhole row-Girl): K9, YO, K1, YO, (K11, YO,K1 YO ) across to last 9 sts, K6, YO(buttonhole), K2 tog, K1: 147 sts.

Row 16 says: K3, increase, (P13, increase) across to last 3 sts, K3: 158 sts.

When the first increase is stated, this is made by using the bar in between the stitches for the increase, correct? Same as in the ()?

Thanking you in advance.
Warmly,
cair

It sounds as though your directions said to use a m1 increase (lift bar between stitches). Unless they tell you otherwise, I would use that increase for the remaining increases as well.

Hi Roch....,
OH great! Even though it isn't stated, I figured it has to be M1A.. : )
Many thanks,
Warmly,

When it's not stated (and even if it is) you can use whichever increase you want. It's best to be consistent throughout your project.

I don't think a lifted bar increase works in this case. There are several different increases. Some do not use up a stitch like the lifted bar which uses the strand between two sts. Other increases occur in a stitch like the kfb or KRL. In your pattern if you use a lifted bar you won't get to 158sts at the end of the row. You need to increase in a stitch not between sts.
Increase in a stitch:
K3, 2sts used, (P13, 2sts used)x10 across to last 3 sts, K3 = 158 sts. This is what you want.
Increase between a stitch:
K3, lifted bar, (P13, lifted bar)x10 across to last 3 sts, K3: 147sts.
