Sirdar pattern 1712 driving me crazy!!! Help desperately needed
Hi folks,

I've had a few issues with this pattern (am a beginner and probably should have picked an easier pattern!) and the last request for help on here was regarding the sleeves which thankfully I was helped with by some very helpful people.

I am now looking for help with the collar - I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do....I know I'm to make an increase in number of sts from 67 to 93.

The pattern reads as follows:
K2, inc in next st, k1, inc in next st, (k2, inc in next st, k1, inc in next st) 12 times' k2

I am confused about the increases - is the st I make inc in also the k1 and k2 st or are these the next sts after??

I have spent more time ripping down knitting and reknitting on this pattern than I care to remember!! The collar is last hurdle before I can sew it up and forget about it!!

Please please help

When a pattern says to increase IN the next stitch, knit into the front and back of it.
K2, inc in next st, k1, inc in next st, (k2, inc in next st, k1, inc in next st) 12 times' k2 -

So you would k2, kfb, k1, kfb, (k2, kfb, k1, kfb) 12 times, k2
