increasing on sleeves...
Okay, I'm a newish knitter and I'm second-guessing myself. I'm doing the starfish sweater from the spring/summer Knit Simple magazine but I've modified the pattern a bit to make it smaller.

My question is this - don't laugh! - as you increase while knitting the sleeves, the pattern reads:

inc 1 st each side on the next row, then every 4th row 10 times more

So does the row that I increase on count as row #1 of 4, or do I start counting on the next row? For example:

1. k1, kfb, knit to 2 before end, kfb, k1
2. p
3. k
4. p
5. k1, kfb, knit to 2 before end, kfb, k1

OR

1. k1, kfb, knit to 2 before end, kfb, k1
2. p
3. k
4. p1, pfb, p to 2 before end, pfb, p1

Thanks SO much! I really appreciate any responses. :D

I would do it the first way, not that it really matters. I just prefer increasing on the knit side.

I don't think it really matters as long as you are consistent. I had the same type of thing on my sweater and I have it wrong on several rows and it made no difference in looks or wear.

Thanks so much! I think I'll just do it the first way, then, because I also prefer to increase on the k side.
