Hi there everyone..I am knittting the sleeve for my sweater and the pattern reads
"K1 inc in next stitch, knit across row until 2 stitches remain, inc in next stitch, K1. Continue to increase 1 st at each end of needle every 8th row 6 times total there are 49 sts on the needle.
My question is how do I count the rows, by that I mean is the row I do the increase in row #1, then 7 more then increase?
Also this means no increases on the purl side right? I am working in stockinette stitch.
Oh yeah...GO PATS
I'm pretty sure it means that you increase on THAT needle. (just one). I'd wait for a seasoned person to come along and answer though, cause I have yet to do sleeves. That's what I read from the pattern though. :?
No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.
Yes Chris, increase only on the RS. Knit 7 rows. Increase on the 8th row.
Yeah, Go Pats! (Can I still be cheering after they just won?! LOL.)

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
