I have checked for mistakes on DB site but none shown however if you cast on 82 stitches for rib and follow the instructions for the increase row correctly you do not arrive at 102 stitches. Has anyone any ideas how to solve the problem and get the pattern running correctly. Or has anyone come accross this already?

Most patterns say to increase at both ends of the row and many people overlook the both and think it's just at one end. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

There are 82 stitches and increase row is as folllows :k2, m1p,p2,m1p,k2,p2: to the end of the row. This means you add 16 stitches and you need 20 to come to 102 which the pattern says you should have. It is the size 12/18 months. Thanks

When you do the increase, m1p, increase by lifting the bar between two sts. This won't use one of the sts on the needle. This way you'll have 10 repeats of 2 increases in each repeat (plus 2 edge sts, I assume). If you'd like to see a video of the increase, there's one under Increases at the Free Videos tab at the top of this page.
