Hello! Be gentle with me please - very new to both knitting and this forum
I'm knitting a Wendy pattern for a childs hooded jacket and the instructions for the sleeves are really confusing me. I wondered if a kind soul would take pity on me and help me out please!
"Cast on 26 sts and k 4 rows. St st inc 1 st at each end of the 7th and every following 6th row to 48 sts then work straight to 13 1/2 ins."
I'm knitting it now but by the time I get to 48 stitches the work will be much longer than the 13.5 inches! I've double checked my tension and it still matches up to what it should be. I'm just a bit confused as to what to do about it!
Many, many, many thanks!!
