Help with Sweater patter
I am making a Norwegian Sweater for the first time. The pattern states Work Pattern 1 the main patter. AT THE SAME TIME, beg inc 1 st at the beg and end of every fourth nd 30 times...woking inc sts into pattern. I don't understand the very last part "working inc sts into the pattern" how do I do that without making the pattern off a couple of stitches??? Won't that cause the pattern to be staggered??? Thanks for any help!

As you work the increases, you work them as they would appear if the pattern were bigger--expanding outward.

For example, if your pattern was

....xxooxxooxxooxxoo then on the increase you'd work it
...oxxooxxooxxooxxoox , then
..ooxxooxxooxxooxxooxx
xooxxooxxooxxooxxooxxo

So what if you have a pattern that repeats, is the principle the same? The pattern is 18 stiches repeated around. Thanks for the help!

When you are at the beginning of the round, work the increase in whatever color would have come before the first one that's on your needles.

At the end of the round, you'd work it in whatever would come next in the pattern.

So for your 18-stitch pattern, it would look like this

.....1 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 18

. . . . 2 1 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 18 17
