Help - Increasing Stitches
I am knitting sleeves for a cardigan and have got stuck with the following instructions:
1st - Knit
2nd - purl
3rd - K1, M1, K2tog, yfwd, *K2, K2tog, yfwd, rep from * to last 2 sts, K1, M1, K1. (31 STICHES)
4th - purl
5th - knit
6th - purl
7th - *K2tog, yfwd, K2, rep from* to last 3sts, K2tog, yfwd, K1
8th - purl
1st to 8th sets pattern
Im fine with all that.
However then it goes onto this:
Keeping continuity of pattern as set (throughout) work 13 rows inc 1 st as before at each end of 1st and every following 6th row, working increased sts in patt. (37 stitches)
this is where im confused because if i follow this i end up with 41 stitches at the end.
It also says 'as before' in bold print but i dont know which as before this refers to.
should i be ignoring the M1 in row 3 when continuing and just increasing the stitches at either end on the 1st 6th ans 13th row?
Hope someone can help make more sense of this than i seem to be......i am 28 weeks pregnant so maybe its my brain confusing matters.
