Incr. within Rib Stitch
Hi Everyone!

I'm knitting some sleeves for a lovely cardi I am doing and am slightly stuck on the increasing within the rib stitch. Not too sure if I should just knit or purl the increases!

The basic rib is p1, k1.

I've cast on 61

Pattern calls for rib 17, inc once in each of next 27 sts, rib 17 giving 88sts.

What would you do?

Thanks!

If the next row switches over to stockinette st, it probably doesn't matter - use a m1 or kfb, which ever you prefer.

When it says rib 17 that means work 17 sts in k p ribbing, not do 17 ribs.

Could you provide a link to the pattern or type just a few lines of where you're having trouble? That seems like a strange pattern, but maybe it's just me. I've heard of knitting the sleeve from shoulder to cuff and decreasing ribbing. That's easier. But doing it from cuff to shoulder and increasing during ribbing just seems odd.

I think it might be a bloused sleeve, tight cuffs then a bunch of increases the last row of ribbing before switching to stockinette. But the incs would usually be more evenly spaced than in the middle 28 sts of the row.

That really is an adorable pattern. The m1 will work and since it looks like you're going to switch to stockinette st after the increase, you could switch to stockinette for the increase row. That way you won't have to think about the ribbing as you increase.
