Please help with this increase
I'm currently knitting a sweater.

Have gotten to the sleeves and am unable to make sense of the pattern.

I currently have 53 stitches on my needle.

The chart says one thing and the words day something else. Here are the instructions below:

Beginning and end rows are indicated, now work in part from chart, working rows 1 - 28 once only the repeating rows 29 - 56 to end and shaping sides by inc 1 st at each end of 5th and 14 foll 6th rows, then on 1 foll 8th rows, taking inc sts into patt. 85.

Can someone please explain to me how I am supposed to increase my work in a more simple way because I'm really stuck here.

Thank you in advance

Stacie

Typically, there are quite a number of ways you can increase the stitches. The one I typically use is lifting the yarn in between stitches then knitting that stitch through the back loop. See the videos here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/increases Pick one or two of these to assist you. Hope this helps.

Thank you for the reply but I actually need the instructions to be explained to me. I don't know what it means. This is my first big project.

Sorry for the confusion.

And thanks

You will increase at each end of the following 5th row, then following 6th rows 14 times, then on the following 8th row once. All of your increases should be on a knit row.

Hope that this helps...

Using the left needle, lift the strand onto the needle, then knit it as normal, this will cause an increase. If the pattern is calling for this at each end, then knit the first stitch, increase as I've mentioned, then keep going until you have 1 stitch on the left needle, then increase again. knit the last stitch.

Thank you

so just to clarify:

On the 5th increase
On the following 6th rows (row 11. 17. 23 etc till 14 times) increase
Then on the 8th Row after that increase ?

Thank you, it's just that the chart doesn't correlate to the instructions which is why I'm having trouble understand what exactly I must do.

Thanks again and sorry for being annoying

Once again thanks

sounds about right, one method I use is to know how many stitches should be there. It takes a little bit of extra time, but as I usually coach my teammates at work, it's better to do it right, than it is to do it fast.
