Pattern Reading Help Required: Shaping Waist of Cardigan
Hi There

Was hoping someone could help me interpret the following pattern instructions - the pattern is knitted in reverse stocking stitch:

1. Dec 1 st at each end of next row and following 6th row once (understood)
2. Work rev st st for 3 rows (understood)
3. Inc 1 st at each end of next row (understood),
4. then following 9th row twice (this is the bit I don't understand)

Does this mean that after step 3, I do the following:

P K P K P K P K P (increase on each end on last purl row) then
K P K P K P K P K (increase on each end on last knit row)?

Also, I know how to increase by making 1 stitch using knit stitch - do you increase the same way when when using a purl stitch?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Following 9th row twice just means on the 9th and 18th row following your last increase.

If you are doing a knit into front and back of stitch to increase on the knit rows, you can do a purl into front and back of stitch to increase on a purl row.

Good luck!
