Ok, now I am FINALLY on row 7 and I am to inc one stitch at each end of 7th and each foll 8th row. So that means 7,15,23,and 7 right? It took me forever get just the plain knitting what am I going to do about the increase
It is just a little confusing the way the pattern is printed because when I finish and odd number I am at letter B and on even rows I finish at letter D. Anyway, so far I have been keeping the first and last stitch in stocking stitch so it will be easier to sew. Those two edges are hidden anyway so I thought I would do that. When I was first following the pattern the edge looked all knotted because one was a purl and one was a knit. To increase would I look at the right side of letter A which is a purl so that means add a purl. My pattern says for increases MIR and MIL so should I do that. My first stitch is a knit (because of stocking stitch) so should I MIR and beg. and MIL at end or should I K1, Purl twice into second stitch.(in front and then back). When I get to the end of the row 7 I am at B so I should look the left of B which is a purl and increase one purl? I hope you can understand all this. This should be easy why am I getting so mixed up.
