Increase keeping Patt correct!
I'm hoping someone out there can help me, i'm knitting a jumper and although the pattern is quite simple, i'm finding it hard to work the extra stitches into the pattern for the increase on the sleeves, some help with this would be much appreciated.

It's sending me around the twist. Thankyou in advance ;-)

There are 3 border sts at each side of the sleeve to start. I'd wait until you have done 4 increases (4 knit sts in addition to the 3 border sts) on each side before repeating the pattern between the asterisks. So add on pattern repeats in sets of 4 sts.

I'm trying to get my head around this, so just say with the first increase of 1stch each end, do you mean that the next row being the 2nd row, now with an extra stitch, i would P1 (the extra stch) P3*yrn, P2tog, P2, rep from * to last 3 sts, yrn, P2tog, P1 then i've got the extra stitch so i would pearl that one too?
Sorry if i'm confusing you now, i seem to have a knack of making the simplest thing so hard for myself.

Yes, that's it. Then after the 2nd increase, you'll have 2 'extra' sts at each end and so on. Keep going till you have 4 of those extra sts, and then use the 4 sts closest to the repeat pattern to add on an extra pattern set on each side. I tried it on needles and it's really a very pretty pattern which will be beautiful on an entire sweater.
