The instructions read as follows: "Inc 1 st at end of row, then every 6th row 12 times, every 8th row 5 times, and every 10th row 2 times." Does this mean that I do the every 6th row increases THEN start counting out every 8th row and after finishing those - start to count again and increase every 10th row? Am I making any sense? Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you, Lin

It reads as follows. increase in the row you are in, that we call row 1 for this. so your increases go: row 1 now every 6th row so that is: row 7 row 13 row 19 row 25 and so on until row row 73 (row 1 plus 12 times 6 = 73) now every 8th row (so a little slower of an increase): row 81 row 89 row 97 row 105 row 113 then every 10th row (slowing the increase rate even more): row 123 row 133 and then you are done increasing. Always work of one instruction with the given number of repeats (12 times, 5 times or the like), then jump to the next instruction and do the same, then the next instruction and so on. pretty much you read it like this: Inc 1 st at end of row, then every 6th row 12 times, once you are done with this, next you do this: every 8th row 5 times, once you are done with this, next you do this: and every 10th row 2 times." edit: Suzeeq was faster, I knew she would be. __________________ Continental Knitter with passion, pretty busy and always onto something new.

Sue is fast to answer, but those long replies take longer to type. We'll call it a draw.

But in this instance, the OP sounded like she knew what to do, just needed some reassurance. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
